My name is Sean Peyton Ross. This book tells the story of my life from my preemie birth, on through my school years, to my time in the US Navy and then Georgia's State Defense Force. Growing up in a small Georgia town had its ups and downs. Plenty of love to go around and a sense of community, but it was also riddled with poverty and tarnished with bullying. Serving also had its ups and downs, from excelling in my chosen field to suffering a horrific injury that left me with the disability that saw me discharged. I've never been a quitter, and this is the story of how I rose to each day's challenge, and will continue to do so.

From the Author:

This book is to serve as a journal and a warning of how difficult, cruel and ugly life can be sometimes.

It also serves as a guide to those who read this book so that readers will hopefully be able to learn from what I have written. It is my hopes that this book will inspire the readers of this book to try harder to improve both themselves and the world they live in.

The people of this world cannot advance socially if we only dwell on the triumphs of yesterday and do not know of or take heed of the mistakes and sins of the past. One small change at a time, by individuals, can cause a tidal wave of change.

About the Author:

Sean Ross lives in Barnesville, Georgia with his wife and son. He has lived there most of his life and built a house there with his VA pension.

Sean Ross is a battered survivor of nearly 40 years of physical, mental, economic and social bullying. Since he knows he is not alone in experiencing this, he always tries his best by volunteering and attempting to make the world a better place, one small change at a time.

He is a veteran of the Navy and  the Georgia State Defense Force and is currently working on a project called "The Land Rover Discovery Recovery Project". This project includes buying, rebuilding and taking a Land Rover on an expedition.

This project will be the focus of his next upcoming book.
