Lighting Your OWN Fuse
A Glossary of Mission, Vision & Passion

ABOUT THE BOOK.. This from a wounded Viet Nam War survivor Steve Tice who was featured on Nightline, and other TV news programs

"The world would be so much better off if books such as "Lighting Your own Fuse" were required reading for all citizens. If so we would have better insight into ourselves as well as those close to us, then logically expand that respect and understanding onward up the human chain to our communities and beyond."

"There is no need for the mean-spiritedness that prevails in our society and in some peoples' hearts. As a young soldier fighting, then severely injured on Viet Nam's Hamburger Hill, I witnessed man's inhumanity to man. I have spent my lifetime treading a path out of that mind-numbing body-wounding experience. "Lighting Your Own Fuse" is a guidebook for living with passion and courage rather than with a mindset of anger, defeat, or lowered self-expectations. Mr. Macdonald is a person who has seen much in his life and has set inspiration and insight to type to give us concrete choices towards living each day with a renewed faith in ourselves, hope, and most importantly the skills to do it with."

"I have great appreciation for this book, and for this author putting his heart on the line to help us all gain a leg up in these difficult days."
