James More, Author of Raise the Flag
Author, practicing writer,
I begin school in 1962 and my first grade teacher is Mrs Paris. Fifty years later I publish this book Raise the Flag with six stories about my journey for education to open the doors of opportunity. When I present Mrs Paris with a hardcover Raise the Flag she asks what year does she teach me. 1962, before man on the moon, before big bird and Sesame Street, BC before computers if you can imagine a world without laptops, IPODS, and smart phones and she works to teach me like taking a sledge hammer and busting into a concrete wall at Fort Knox. She hugs Raise the Flag and says this is the most beautiful book I have ever seen. I say and the author must go before he cries in front of his first grade teacher, again.
