It s My World Too

Life is good for me, but as in the lives of all people, I have faced my own
challenges. It is in the context of living in the world as a blind person that my story
unfolds, and it is as a blind person that I have claimed my place. Throughout my
life I ...

In 1941, on a farm outside Troy, Missouri, a boy named Homer Page was born. Blind since birth, Homer has lived his life in vibrant determination to be a part of the game. He has known success and failure, felt hope and heartache, and experienced joy and despair. He struggled to find the courage to act and the wisdom to accept what he could not change. Through it all, he never let circumstances become limitations. Homer received two letters in wrestling from the University of Missouri, earned his doctorate from the University of Chicago, and went on to teach at the University of Colorado. He later pursued and enjoyed a career in elective office. He is a leader in the disability rights movement and has lectured on the topic of the rehabilitation of the blind in both Sweden and Poland. In this memoir, he shares the story of his life—the challenges and disappointments that he overcame on the way to a meaningful and successful personal and professional career. But he also tells a larger story about living with disability in mainstream America. Homer explores the joy and pain that he and others have experienced as American society has changed over the past seventy years. Most of all, however, his is the story of a realist who refuses to give up. In the end, it is a story of the affirmation of life and the joy of living.

When you came into this life you were packaged with something; something that was intrinsic and uniquely yours. It is your world, and what you do with it, will determine how long, you will live or die. It is your world and why should you not naturally care about it, nurture it, develop, enhance, and maximize it. After all, it is your inheritance, and who would even dare to expect you to think about giving it up? Would it then make sense to trade it in for another? What if the world offered in exchange is better and more glorious than yours, and will cost you nothing but the taking, and yielding up of your world? Would you consider such an offer? Start reading and you will find out about the real deal I have found in His world.

Let me tell you how much fun it is to be a book writer! One of my friends recently said to me, I dont even know anyone whos ever READ a book, let alone WRITE one! I was amused. Well you know its really not so hard to write a book. You just talk about what you feel, and organize your thoughts along the way. At some point, as you stay determined to make it happen, the book comes into the world. For me, now having compiled over 30 book-length manuscripts of various topics and subject matter, I have become more and more inclined to share the way I see the world with others along the way. You might call what I like to write about as having to do with personal philosophy, or individual world view. Everyone has a way they see their world; this book is part of how I see mine. It seems that all kinds of people have something to say about what life is and is not. I am like most people, so am no exception. I have come to enjoy giving such opinions and points of view with just about anyone who will listen. I wrote this book, MY WORLD: The First 50 Years, because I wanted to be sure and document the way life appeared to be to me at the half-century mark in my personal growth and evolution. I did it in a way that enables you to read right through it, or, if you prefer, you can take it slowly, over a one-year span of time, and think about the ideas and thoughts carefully. How you read the book is entirely up to you. Ten years earlier I had written a similar book (Earth Dwelling: An Owners Manual for Life) in order to share thoughts about the meaning and purpose of life. It is amazing the difference that ten years can make! I like to think that I am growing! Gee. Could that be? I sure hope so! People from the worlds of philosophy, religion and the popular culture are anxious to share the way they see the world with others. I have a passion to do that also, and so I wrote this book in order to summarize how things in life appeared to me. I could be way off - you decide for youself. At any rate, my world is MY way of seeing YOUR world, you will see it your special way and that is part of the beauty of this life. Each person is free to see it differently, and that is our basic right to do so. I like that. I actually feel so strongly about what I am saying here that I created a web site (which is called to talk about and share ideas with others. Take a look at it some time. Thoughts are powerful, and have a tendency to either make you great, or even destroy you before your time. So, think good thoughts! And enjoy the book as well!

A personalized travelogue, My World chronicles the inspiring story of a poor Kentucky boy who learned how to turn the rough grist of his life into the fine art of literature. Jesse Stuart's life centered on W-Hollow, Greenup County, Kentucky, and extended to the far corners of the world. As a writer, teacher, and lecturer, he traveled to all but one of the United States and to ninety countries on six continents. As the core of Stuart's world, W-Hollow was the place of his birth and his first reaching out -- to the brown earth and the green shoots growing out of it, to the insects and animals that inhabited its wooded slopes, to the blue sky and the birds that flashed across it. From W-Hollow he went out first to Greenup High School, then to Lincoln Memorial University, then to all of Kentucky, and finally to the world. In My World, we see Stuart's expanding universe through his eyes. Through the telescoping essays, Stuart slowly extends his vision to encompass more of the world and humanity. He is conscious of the social and geographical forces that shaped and defined his life. He is also very aware of the forces that draw him home again. He saw his beloved Kentucky as many states in one. Each region -- from the east Kentucky mountains to the Jackson Purchase -- was a unique kingdom. Stuart brings Kentucky's varied scenery, its people, and their distinctive dialects and social customs to life for his readers.

The World Race is not your typical mission experience. For 11 months, participants abandon the luxuries of home and bid adieu to family and friends to join a squad of 50 to 60 fellow young adults and journey to 11 countries for the sole purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God. With only a 50-pound backpack, Racers live in 24/7 Christian community and learn what it really means to "consider everything a loss compared to the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus as Lord." Racers partner with local and longterm ministries overseas to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. During the year, Racers share the love of Jesus through orphan care, feeding the homeless, prostitute outreach, construction, praying over the lost, and door-to-door evangelism. God captivates Racers' hearts for his gospel as they see a world desperate for the hope and life that are in Christ Jesus. About the Author Mary Magoni grew up in Columbus, Georgia, and graduated from Columbus High School. In 2010, she graduated from Berry College in Rome, Georgia, receiving her Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education. She now lives in Rome, Georgia, and serves on the youth ministry staff at First Presbyterian Church. Mary's parents are involved in Christian ministry, and she has two younger sisters. Mary's passions include sharing Jesus with others, camping, and throwing herself into any creative project.

My World of Poetry

In this book you will experience real emotions that I dealt with in my life. I felt different like I didnt belong, poetry was the only way I could express myself. Some of the poems may seem like rap or hip-hop, which was my way of fitting in. I also fell victim to the world of addiction for me that is how I dealt with my emotions. As a member of a 12 step fellowship I realized that I didnt want to feel. Drugs and Alcohol made me feel alive, but that feeling would only last so long. After a while I felt misery, pain, and unhappiness. Until one day God granted me the gift of desperation. From that day on Ive been sober, but like a good addict those feelings come back. Thats why I consider myself Still in The Grips.

Thom Mullens mentor Dr. Yvonne Ward writes What is a poet? A poet is someone who takes the raw material of his life and makes something new and beautiful with it. What is ugly becomes beautiful. A poet takes his disappointments, fears, trauma, loneliness, and joy and creates something with words that stirs the human soul. A poet takes what his life is made of and creates an artistic form such as an artist paints her soul onto the canvas. Thom Mullens poems are about current events, heroic veterans and firefighters, love, alcoholism, and his joyful life now.
