Hold The Line… It’s A Giveaway!
If you haven’t had a conversation about escalating violence since The Sandy Hook shooting, I think you’ve probably had your head in the sand. In my home alone, we’ve talked about school safety, gun safety, gun control laws, mental illness and an entire slew of other things. Is it me or do you feel the climate in our country changing? Samuel L. Jackson was quoted in the Los Angeles Times as saying, ”I grew up in the South with guns everywhere and we never shot anyone. This [shooting] is about people who aren’t taught the value of life.” I can certainly relate to that statement. I do think that in many ways we have a generation growing up that aren’t taught the value of life. This is going to be a problem.
You may have heard me mention that my little brother, Tye Jackson wrote a book about how to handle crisis situations. I should mention here that I think his book is directed to first responders but it also helps the average person be a little more prepared and knowledgeable about how to handle a situation. Plus, Tye is probably the most entertaining person I know, but please don’t tell him that I admitted it. I will deny it to my dying day. Hold The Line is a book that gives the first responser, whether that’s a civilian or a police officer, fireman or soccer coach tools to deescalate the crisis.
So, it you are interested, I am going to give away a couple of these books. Because we had our own almost broken arm conference this week, because Grandma arrives here in less than 60 minutes, because the kiddos don’t have school today and well, because I said so… I will be giving away at least one copy of Tye’s book. I reserve the right to give away more just because that’s how I am. All you have to is comment as to why you would be interested to read it. That’s it. If you share this post in anyway, fill free to comment again letting me know where you shared and I’ll give you another entry. I’ll use random.org to generate the winners…we’ll see how I feel after Grandma gets here.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on this hot little book it’s available for $10.99 at Tate Publishing. Good luck… I can’t wait to read the comments.
