Life is a Journey: Read or Written Any Books Lately?

By Ken Reiman

We all have a story to share. Our lives are living testimonies. Your voice matters. Ever tried to capture your voice by writing an article or a book yourself? You can choose to write for yourself or to share publicly. Writing is an excellent way to process your thoughts and share your ideas with others. I would argue it is a form of transportation.

When you read a book it can bring you to the present and take you through the past and into the future. It can transport you through a maze of plots and subplots. The best part is you control the traffic! Just hit stop on the audiobook device or place a bookmark. It’s just that simple. 

Next time you are caught in traffic consider reading a book or listening to an audiobook of your choice. Alternatively, have a journal where you can jot down your thoughts. For 16 years I simply wrote down some thoughts I had on a piece of paper and then typed it on my computer. Before I knew it, I had completed a book. If I can do it so can you. 

I’m living proof that you don’t have to come from a family of literary giants. I come from humble origins. My mother is an immigrant from Japan who taught Japanese at Arizona State University. My father cleaned hospital instruments for a living. None of us ever imagined that I would become a published author. Writing for me is another form of public service. I could no longer stay silent and watch others suffer. I wanted to share some ideas on diversity, tolerance, and inclusion. With that simple wish, Love Both Keep Both was born.

My memoir takes you on a multicultural journey through several regions and is a book on overcoming prejudice and adversity to fight for justice. It offers a glimpse into the past and a roadmap into the future. It aspires to make our world a more tolerant place for every human being on the same journey through life. I’ve benefitted from reading about the experiences of others. I hope now I can help inspire you to read mine. For more details see: Thank you!!
