For this book, I drew upon my childhood and coming-of-age influences. The deaths of John Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and so many others served as wake-up calls to me. Things change, sometimes for the better and sometimes not. However, we can learn from the important lessons of the past. We can work to improve the world around us while preserving the values of past generations. Throughout my forty years as a social studies teacher, students have told me they loved my history classes because I made the material meaningful by teaching through his-stories and her-stories. In this book, I share a wealth of stories and insights as to how the reader can make sense of—and make a difference in—a world where things constantly change.

When my parents began writing “life stories” in their writing group, I figured a few good stories would make it onto paper. Well, they did – followed by many, many more than I ever imagined. The family history that emerged makes for exciting and revelatory reading. From the family roots in Scotland and England, to the shores of Connecticut, then westward to Indiana, the family grew and flourished. The adventures and travels of the Lynch and Cook families span World Wars, cross thousands of miles, and yielded hundreds of photographs. This book will captivate you with its fascinating twists and turns, and with its tales of love and devotion. It is, indeed, a feast of a book.
