Rogue River OR – WEBWIRE

Never let what you cannot do, stop what you can do.

The book is written with a high regard of history and personal perspective from the author himself, Alexis Strong, together with the insights of his wife who personally experienced the intense turmoil of the world war.

Alex Strong was only 11 years old, living with his family on their rubber tree plantation on Basilan Island, Philippines, when World War II broke out. This fascinating book details his and his future wife Norma’s family’s journey through the dark days of war to a brighter future that they themselves created. After the days of starvation, deprivation, and occupation, the incredible story of how two families caught in the chaotic life in the times of war discovered their will to live against the oppressors, invaders, and eventually find their way to freedom.

It is never easy to live in the time of struggles brought about by war and the personal anxieties, worries and fears about loved ones separated by unpleasant circumstances. However, every beginning has a corresponding ending, World War II finally ended, leaving peace and hope to the survivors who are positive that life goes on, with not only an uneventful life but one which promises rejuvenation, reconciliation, redemption for nations and people under God.

This book is highly recommended not only to those who suffered during the war but also to younger generations who may be curious of reiterations or clichés about history repeating itself which according to experts is the one and only significant lesson that mankind can glean from history.
