Some people that went to work that fateful morning were hardworking, god fearing and stood in the light as the author states in the preface of the Earth.

Uncommon Type: Tom Hanks

Diverse, rich in their own special genre, characters that are unique unto themselves, some that are odd, others that are heartwarming and yet endearing to readers. The creative quality attached to the stories is an antique manual typewriter that if those who used them remember had to have a ribbon changes, no correct tape and all too often caused the writer to have to rework and retype their work.

Honest, raw in some cases and subjects that could have been ripped out of the headlines from the past and present we learn about immigrants as even today that want to find their way to freedom and escape persecution. My favorite story was Christmas Eve 1953 that centers around a WWII veteran who relates through his past experience during…
