Personal Observations

by Robert Neff

Intro for Chapter 2 from Reconnecting with Life


There is a noticeable lack of understanding in regard to the scope of the challenges other people face. People in general have become numb to the plight of others who are less fortunate or struggling to survive. Our culture seems to be surrounded by complacency and hate. My words reflect the struggles I see through personal observations.

Review by Published Poet, Cindy Rickey


Finished reading your book last night and enjoyed it very much. There was a great sense of honesty and openness. I especially liked the last chapter, Compassion and Empathy. It is where you really shine. Good job, Rob!
