Book Review: Carissa’s Law by Misty Boyd

Carissa’s Law by Misty Boyd

Carissa’s Law by Misty Boyd is a touching book about the life of a girl born with spina bifida.

The story starts with her first day of college and all the adventure that moment brings into one’s life. In this case, from the viewpoint of one living life in a wheelchair.

This book struck a chord with me as I had a family member who was born with spina bifida, as was the author of Carissa’s Law.

As you make your way through this novel, there are moments of laughter and moments of tears. There are also moments that made me so mad about how the expectant parents and their babies were treated that I could have screamed!

Carissa’s Law is about understanding that all life is precious and worthy. In a wheelchair or out of it, people are people with hopes and dreams that they should be allowed to achieve.

It is about the dedication of one girl to make things better for those with spina bifida and for disabled people.

It is a fight for truth.

Carissa seeks to require the medical community to update their knowledge in regards to spina bifida, as well as telling parents the truth about the prognosis.

I really enjoyed this book and hope that you will, too.

Book Review: Get the HECK Out of Our Way!: EXAMPLES OF GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT ARE ERODING OUR FREEDOMS, HOLDING BACK THE ECONOMY, AND COSTING US MONEY AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT by Dale W. Cox

Get the HECK Out of Our Way!: EXAMPLES OF GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT ARE ERODING OUR FREEDOMS, HOLDING BACK THE ECONOMY, AND COSTING US MONEY AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT by Dale W. Cox

By now you have probably heard that our tax dollars go to support some pretty off-the-wall laws. Get the HECK Out of Our Way!: EXAMPLES OF GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS THAT ARE ERODING OUR FREEDOMS, HOLDING BACK THE ECONOMY, AND COSTING US MONEY AND WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT by Dale W. Cox helps us to see a little better just how far our government has gone astray.

You have, of course, heard how Texas is leaving the union. It is no longer a matter of if, it is a matter of when. We reviewed the book Texit on our How to Manage Your Monkey Blog a while back. That book talks about how Texans are fed up with the federal government.

Get the HECK Out of Our Way! kicks it up a notch, as Emeril would say. In this book, we see how the federal government is wreaking havoc on most states.

Maybe you have heard about the USDA paying dairy farmers not to milk. We used to live nextdoor to one of the largest dairy farmers in South Carolina. As we understand it, he has been paid not to milk.

Here in Texas, we have heard of a rice farm here in our county being paid not to grow rice. I wish I could find an agency that would pay us not to grow kudzu. We could get the government to kill it for us and pay us for something we don’t want anyway.

We give Get the HECK Out of Our Way! all five stars. It is well-written and well-researched. We did get very tired of reading the same mantra at the end of every chapter. Cox stated upfront that he was advised to only write it once; we wish he had listened to that advice. Some of the illustrations are a little hard to read, but one must remember that I am legally blind and that might be on my end of things.

We think you will be surprised by what you read in Get the Heck Out of Our Way. You will probably want to write to your elected officials. Maybe together we can heal our nation.
