“21 Days: The Random Thoughts of a Brother in Mourning”: a heart-touching narration about death, faith, and God. “21 Days: The Random Thoughts of a Brother in Mourning” is the creation of published author Donald R. Dragovich, a man who has always used writing as a way to express himself and his feelings. He also uses his skills as his coping mechanism during tragic times, and ultimately as an inspiration for others.

Dragovich writes, “21 Days is the chronological countdown to David’s death as described by his brother, Donald. His written thoughts document what was happening to his brother David as he quickly succumbed to esophageal cancer. Donald describes his emotional turmoil in dealing with his brother’s untimely and unstoppable death. He asks a powerful, rhetorical question that makes everyone ponder their mortality. What would you do if doctors told you, you or a loved one only have twenty-one days to live? How would you react? Donald reacted by questioning his faith in God and God’s power over cancer during this countdown.

“Donald’s brother David was given twenty-one days to live on September 29, 2015. In dealing with the reality of his oldest brother’s death, Donald expressed his feelings by writing down what happened each day and how he felt. He describes how he cursed at God, questioned God’s divine intervention, and even God’s existence because no prayers were answered, no miracle cure and no death reprieve were in sight. Donald refers to esophageal cancer that David had as an evil demon. He shows his anger and disgust with cancer and how it destroys not only a person but a family. He expresses his torment and anguish as he counts down the days, but in the end, ultimately embraces his spirituality.

“When the inevitable became more and more real, Donald found his faith and accepted his brother’s fate. When Donald found his faith in God, it was a comforting, coping mechanism helping him deal with the inevitable death of his oldest brother.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Donald R. Dragovich’s new book is an engrossing narrative of the author’s experience of coping with the heartbreak he had after losing his brother.

This book describes other instances of spirituality that Dragovich has experienced and how he turns these tragic events into faith-renewing experiences.
