My best friend, who I consider to be more of a brother than either of the blood-related brothers I grew up with, is a devout Christian. However, I am an atheist who believes the world would finally know peace if all religions disappeared, including Christianity. How can two people with such opposite ideological differences keep a friendship, and keep it for nearly 12 years and counting? Well, I thought it would make for an interesting book if I told the story of the past nearly-12 years.
We’ve been to Mexico to build houses, we’ve helped drug-addicted friends become sober, we’ve supported each other through painful breakups, and much more.
It hasn’t been easy, but we’ve persevered through everything. Like family. As family should be. Now, I call this book an autobiography because it will focus on my personal struggles that my best friend has helped me through. Not all of those struggles have been physical, but rather mental. Despair, depression, self-loathing, etc. It will center around our two philosophies and how what we believe has shaped who we are now, and even though they are polar opposites of each other, we have still managed to be like brothers. And, at the end of the tunnel, we found sunshine, including girls to marry and babies to father.
I hope you look forward to reading it. It will be available for pre-order exactly one month before release, on May 19, 2018.
