Thirty Days Has September, First Ten Days by James Strauss
From a traveled elementary school education, changing schools ever two years, to attending a small liberal arts college, James Strauss graduated to a leadership position that turned out to be a ‘hanging by the fingernails’ survival position in the Marines Corps in the Vietnam War, 1969. From a hospital bed, when he finally found it was likely he would live, James looked up and asked God for one favor.
He asked not to lead a normal humdrum life. James now believes that God heard my prayer and pointed one finger down to grant his request. Outrageous fortune was smiled down upon Strauss with all of its travel, pain, depression, elation, danger, adventure and total lack of believability. For a time he tried to have credibility until he discovered that his own credibility was without meaning.
