Everything you do, all the words you ever speak, all have an effect on others, both good and bad

Kent Hopkins invites readers on a journey filled with retrospection and introspection in his thought-provoking new book, “Memoirs of a Dead Guy” (published by iUniverse).

“How many have wondered what happens to us when we cash out?” Hopkins asks. “All of us do in time. How many have even attempted to speculate in writing, given such a topic?”

In “Memoirs of a Dead Guy,” Hopkins sets out to do his own exploration, and details the experiences he had with a being he indentifies as his guardian angel. This guardian angel visits a fictional Hopkins as he’s laying in a bed preparing to die from cancer. He’s reminiscing about his time on Earth and realizes that he doesn’t regret a single moment.

An excerpt from “Memoirs of a Dead Guy”:

“There is a message here, one I wish to share. Things aren’t what they seem. We’ve been blinded by the fearful side of us, seeking nothing less than absolute domination and control of our environment and each other. It was written that those who intend to lead end up at the back of the bus and those who would control end up seeking to explain themselves to a far greater power.”

“Everything you do, all the words you ever speak, all have an effect on others, both good and bad,” Hopkins writes. “Give it some thought … the good comes back to you, as well as the harm done others.”
