Wake up America: Crisis after Crisis Dots Your Land! Lead the Way! Be the Solution, Not the Problem
Crucial Mistakes, Calculated Assumptions, Willful Betrayal of Public Trust, a History of Inequality, a Debt Driven Mentality, Disjointed Efforts to Demilitarize the most Powerful Military in the Free World; Contributors to America’s Current Crisis
It is the moment that we realize life is a gift, a miracle tendered on an “as is” but loan basis, that we can more easily grasp the dramatic transformation that an ordinary, innocent and completely unknown literary work takes before becoming a best-seller, or how the Internet, unknown and unheard of 70 years ago, is now a global phenomenon, easily accessible to more than 6.5 billion people, or the behind the scenes workings that push a YouTube video “viral” 24 hours after launching, or any number of other mysterious phenomena’s that mark our everyday life.
Langston says he wrote this book not to induce “conspiracy theories,” “point fingers,” or “publically ridicule” our governmental hierarchy; but to be a voice for the people; a rallying point, a relief valve for the anguish and panic, deep uncertainties, and the emotional topography felt by the citizenry of a troubled nation.
Langston lays before readers an open and often frightening record of inconsistencies, half-truths and innuendos; a synthesis of personal experience, news, rumors, and the rapidly shifting perspectives about how bad things are—and how bad they could be.
There are roughly three areas that Langston explores in the book, —the physical, mental and emotional changes that follow a crisis; —the stigma and shame heaped upon us, the people of the United States as the world loses confidence in our financial, economic, social and domestic prowess; and —the unexpected and unexplainable calmness, clarity, and vigilance birthed out of this chaos.
Chapters 1-6 delve into the physical, mental and emotional changes that follow a crisis,
Chapters 7-12 brings to light the stigma and shame heaped upon us, the people of the United States as the world loses confidence in our financial, economic, social and domestic prowess; and finally,
Chapter 13 answers two questions, “Why haven’t these crises pushed us over the edge; as a nation and as a people,” and “What must Americans do to remain vigilant, and to maintain their sanity, clarity of thought and hope for a better tomorrow?”

Since the adage “A picture is worth a thousand words,” conveys the notion that a complex idea can be captured in a single still image, the succeeding chapters are kaleidoscopic;
“This book is not a definitive treatise; it’s a portrait,” says Langston. The story will continue unfurling. Some aspects, we’ll never fully understand.
Of the three, the third is the most important, because it is the principle that makes sense of the first two and that permits the greatest insight into why modern change happens the way it does.
The name given to that one dramatic moment when parents pull their hair out, schools and public places shut down and quarantine signs go up all over the place due to an unstable situation of extreme danger or difficulty is Crisis.
