August His Family
Young African American prosecutor, James Holloway had been on the wrong path, until a near-death accident changed his life.

As a result, he realizes his true purpose, becomes a better person, and ends up with the woman he truly loves.
“I can’t…hold. Not ablll…dark… veil clo-sing…in on… me! I can’t…hol…!”
I felt as alone as I ever had as a wall of water twenty-feet high rose above my head, pushing me against death itself. The ocean overtook me. It felt as if a whale had swallowed me, like what happened to Jonah. And then I began to feel myself dissolving into calm as never before. Then, I found myself headed toward a bright light in the distance, beginning a boundless, peaceful journey.
I, James Holloway, seemed headed for a magical land, a faraway place, a lost horizon. The location seemed stashed away in time immemorial. Unbelievable mystery surrounded me. I faced a pasture of gray, unfounded territory. I felt exhilarated, and as though I’d stepped into the greatest simplicity you could ever experience. I felt in contact with something beyond imagination, something highlighting life as one could never know. A higher spirit had transported me, lifting me from the earth to a place I never knew existed!
I found myself losing track of time and distance. I’d fallen into an immense space that contained sumptuous solitude and sentimental value as life flowed alongside of me. The atmosphere had become a marvelous stream carrying me away…carrying me…carrying me!
Everything seemed transformed around me. I felt lifted out darkness and fear and in the midst of quiet, solemn surroundings. The location abounded with hope, aspiration, and inspiration, and I experienced something you might in the presence of Halls of Ivy campuses, chimneys puffing from simple abodes, and every other wind-blown sign of bliss. I felt eternal peace!
