[From the back cover and the Forward] The journey continues ...come along and surrender yourself as you are creatively caressed and cradled by the feelings, thoughts and words of Jim M. McClellan. The feelings will move you, the thoughts will make you wonder, and the words will be your own. This, the second stop in the journey, Words of Poetic Verse, is sure to please both the heart and mind. In today's complex world we tend to forget that it is the simplest words that oftentimes arouse the very deepest of thoughts and emotions. Words of Poetic Verse: Volume Two is a continuation of the author's lifelong journey to the depths of love, heartache, happiness, and despair. The modest poetic sharing of his experiences and knowledge acquired along the way have given me a source of insight, wisdom, acceptance, and strength. May you, the reader, also be touched and inspired by this young man's Feelings, Thoughts, and Words. Carole Kaminski-Petrungar
From the book: In this book, you will hear the voices of America's founders and fanatics, of Supreme Court justices and civil rights workers. Among this cacophony are rock star Ted Nugent, first-grader Ruby Bridges, actor Charlton Heston, gay rights activist Michael Hardwick, ex-con Clarence Earl Gideon, and pro-life protester Norma McCorvey. As these stories prove, the Constitution is not self-enforcing and depends upon citizens for its support. Judge Learned Hand emphasized this fact during World War II: I often wonder whether we do not rest our hopes too much upon constitutions, upon laws, and upon courts. These are false hopes; believe me, these are false hopes, liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it. For the Constitution to have meaning, it must be not only the words we recite, but also the words we live by.
