The demand of governments to override morality on the belief that duty supersedes moral choice is destructive to society.

After experiencing a motivational dream encouraging him to pursue a novel, Chad Burn wrote “The Dreamtaker” (published by Trafford Publishing).

“The Dreamtaker” has been selected for inclusion in the Gold Seal program, which recognizes excellence in writing and overall potential.

On his third assignment to Vietnam, Sergeant Dane’s concern for the safety of his men and innocent children enables him to accomplish something he had not imagined. He invades the dreams of a young village girl and commands her to follow his instructions. The young girl, frightened by what has happened, hides the children. The Viet Cong, suspicious of her motives, brand her as an outcast and change her life forever. She must find the American that invaded her dreams and destroy him, so she will be able to return to her life.

“We are individually responsible for what we do no matter who claims authority to make us do otherwise,” says Burn. “The demand of governments to override morality on the belief that duty supersedes moral choice is destructive to society.”
