“My book was inspired by the white lies we tell loved ones, the white lies our government tells us and an untruth that the U.S. is involved in the war,”
VILLA PARK, Ill. (PRWEB) April 27, 2015
Bethel’s third book is an exercise of his right to free speech and expression guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Through honest, emotional poems, Bethel shares his response to life experiences and life lessons, and he contemplates life and death, endless wars and their true origins, and the failure of relationships such as marriage.
“My book was inspired by the white lies we tell loved ones, the white lies our government tells us and an untruth that the U.S. is involved in the war,” Bethel says. “Regardless of what we tell others, the truth will come out.”
An excerpt from “Love, War, and Other White Lies”:
“It is my opinion that love and war have many similarities. The passion in which we love may be compared to the passion in which we fight. The effort we give to individuals may be compared to the effort put forth in individual battles. The small lies we tell to put us in good favor with a potential lover may be compared to the small twists in truth that our own government gives in relation to political issues.”
