Give Them Another Chance: Essays (Paperback)
A former lawyer, Superior Court Judge and radio commentator for WHQR, author Gary Trawick has observed life over decades and across the state of North Carolina. His empathy and intelligence combine in this collection of essays that remind us that we have control over our lives based on the decisions that we make. Trawick's memories from childhood bring to the page a vivid portrait of southeastern North Carolina and the lists and tips that conclude many of the essays are ripe for living a better life.
Trawick's thoughtful application of the simple to the complex is paramount throughout. Trawick applies his mother's first aid methodology to management of a church controversey, reflects on universally applicable lessons watching kids play basketball in the park and lessons on love from victims in the courtroom. The collection concludes with a letter to his grandson Alex that should be right-of-passage reading for every 16 year old in America.
Give them Another Chance combines literature and memoir to create a thoughtful collection of reflections by North Carolina treasure Gary Trawick.
