Christmas is a special time of year, reminding us of the importance of friends and family.  With this auspicious occasion comes many wonderful blessings.  I am mindful of something as I gaze upon the meticulously decorated tree.  Resting high above, on the pinnacle of the evergreen, is an angel.  Of course the figure is only a symbol, not an idol that we should worship, but instead a reminder of something that is real.

For those of us who believe, there are indeed angels among us.  They come into our lives, often unaware, bringing joy to the lives they touch.  Without them the world can seem like a cruel and lonely place.  Their miraculous presence has the ability to change our lives.  While there are many truly remarkable people in the world, a few stand out among all the rest.

Whether or not we choose to admit it, we need each other.  Every person, every business, and everything we do while upon this marvelous planet called earth depends upon others.  No one is an island – even though some attempt to live that way.  But who are they hurting?  Life is short and fleeting, here today and gone tomorrow.  What would it be like not to have a single person to share it with?

It is so exciting to watch the children enjoying themselves, especially the younger ones as they put on quite a show for us.  Their faces are all aglow, they have no worries, and they delight in the little thing we call life.  Those are the fond memories we carry with us throughout our time here on earth.  Christmas is a time for family and friends to assemble together to share those precious moments and create new ones.  Have you ever considered how boring and lonely life would be without them? 

We must never take people for granted, especially those we cherish, for in the blink of an eye they can be taken from us.  Don’t wait until it is too late to enjoy the company of a dear friend.  The holidays are quickly approaching, providing an excellent opportunity to share our time with others and give of ourselves.

I have written a book I am sure you will enjoy.  It holds a lifetime of memories for two six-year-old children who discover ‘the greatest gift of all’.  This young boy and girl build a friendship at an early age that follows them wherever they go, even when destiny takes them in opposite directions.  Why not join us as we share in the story of some really good people?  Consider the sacrifices they make to help others.  When you are finished reading, you will surely believe there are angels among us.

The story begins with an orphan named Destiny.  She has met a kind old gentleman who knows the true meaning of life.  Watch as fate brings the two together, creating the backdrop for what is truly the Greatest Gift of All.

What does the Navy SEALs and human trafficking have in common?  Absolutely nothing except being enemies!  That should be enough to put this vile group on notice.  The SEALs have long ago been accepted as the elite.  If there is a tough job to be done, these are the guys to call upon.  Anyone that is familiar with Bin Laden has heard of the SEALs and the heroic mission to rid the world of this terrorist.  These well-trained men are as tough as they come.  When the mission runs into trouble they know how to get it done.  Their motto says it all: A Navy SEAL never gives up.  So what can we say to those involved in human trafficking?  You had better watch out!  There is a team of former SEALs that are coming after you. 

The President of theUnited States is fed up with the disappearance of our young people.  The FBI now has a special division that handles cases involving human trafficking.  However, the task can be overwhelming, and that is the reason a team of former SEALs has been called upon. 

It is frightening to learn how powerful the organization of human trafficking has become.  Each year there are as many as 800,000 missing person’s reports filed and of those, some 150,000 are actual abductions.  In the end only 1,100 to 1,200 bodies are found.  These remaining missing persons are never heard from again.

Why did I become involved in writing about human trafficking?  It is because the problem seems to be getting worse.  I can personally recall a young woman disappearing on her way to the office.  She was employed at the corporate level of the company that I worked for.  It did not take long for news to reach everyone concerning her disappearance.  Can you imagine that?  One morning your loved one leaves for work, never to be heard from again.  It just so happens this occurred in Oklahoma, City.  Now three decades later a team of former SEALs is coming out of retirement to fight against this vile group of human trafficking.  According to news reports, they are operating in the state of Oklahoma.  It is ironic, isn’t it?  However I wrote The Twelve SEALs before any of this was known to me.  While this novel is totally a creative work of fiction, it must be noted that the statistics are based upon well-documented information.  It is my purpose to call to action.

There are young people disappearing all over the world at an alarming rate.  It is time to do something about it.  The Twelve SEALs provides a scenario that could happen to anyone, at any time.  Not everybody that disappears is a victim of human trafficking, but I have reasons to believe a lot of them are.  Just because a person is over eighteen does not relieve us of our responsibility to search for them. 

It is appalling to learn that so many cases of missing persons are never solved.  Maybe here is a solution.  Why not put our best men on the task?  This is a job for none other that the Navy SEALs.
