Humility, The Lost Virtue was written as a book of hope for the future, based on reflections of the past. We can learn from past mistakes and failures as well as past successes and achievements. If we face our mistakes honestly, and make a sincere effort to take a different path, there will be opportunities to learn, grow and heal as individuals and as a nation. At the heart of this book is the belief that there is a right way and a wrong way based on an absolute truth revealed to us by our Creator. A search for this truth is necessary if we are to find our way through this life. The world today seemingly has lost touch with God. A recent survey, conducted by Gallup and analyzed by sociologists from Baylor University's Institute for Studies of Religion, revealed that nine out of ten Americans say they do believe in God. However, the survey showed that four different views of defining God exist. This book invites the reader to contemplate how we have arrived at a place where we would rather imagine who or what God is than believe what He has told us, and live by the example He has given us. The author's motivation to write this book came from her concern for the future of America, her grandchildren, and all of our children. The ideas and inspiration come from her own search for the truth and belief in the word of God. Life is an interesting journey if one wishes to find the true God. It is not an easy journey or an easy path to follow, but it is the only way to personal maturity and a meaningful life. Lillian Carucio lives with her husband in Marengo, Illinois. Their three children, Christine, Susan, Jim, and their wonderful grandsons, Christopher and Kevin, are their greatest blessing and joy.
