Whatever Happened to Our Dreams? by Joseph E. Pluta Distant Echo Press 2015 Meet a man who in 1976 offers a compelling claim that he knows who really killed JFK, an African American janitor who in 1954 becomes the most beloved mentor at a wealthy private elementary school, and a college dorm maid who in 1963 runs an off campus bar where she serves underage freshmen. Read first hand accounts of chronically inept university administrators and of corruption in the conduct of the Vietnam war. Witness the insight of a ten year old who teaches his elderly aunt a valuable lesson. Accompany a married couple who travel through beautiful British Columbia in search of a place to live and work. These and other stories in this collection look beyond mere nostalgia for a past that may or may not have existed to capture various human emotions during different stages of life.
