This book tells a story about extreme poverty and how the shackles of poverty were shattered by faith in God, dreaming the impossible dream, streaks of luck that the author attributes to the work of the Holy Spirit, government benefits, help from many people and opportunities that abound in a democratic society and free enterprise system. Hardships that abound in this story make some readers wonder how anyone could overcome them but through persistence and optimism, many of these hardships were indeed overcome. Humor that also abounds in this story contributes to a reader’s possible reaction: laugh and cry. Reaching distant glows represents making impossible dreams possible, a rough and rugged journey starting in one of the poorest places in the Philippines, overcoming many obstacles and reaching a way of life in middle class America. The author now enjoys the blessings of faith, family love and unity, relatives and friends.
