"This is a beautifully written, insightful chronicle of a young girl's Holocaust survival. Though very private and personal, it nevertheless captures the common torments of children living through this disastrous civilizational breakdown. What makes this book unique is that the author pulls the reader into the story. We get to know her parents and other memorable characters for the kind of people they were. There is an immediacy in the writing that almost makes the reader a participant in the daily struggles to keep alive. We get an honest look at the relationships between men and women on the edge of annihilation and how children coped with these unusual alliances. This emotionally powerful yet intellectually lucid work stands out within the Holocaust literature. Students and others will greatly benefit as the author guides the reader, setting forth the political and historical context in which the action unfolds." -Stefanie Seltzer, President of the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust "The story of the relentless hunt of a Jewish child in Nazi Europe haunts the reader long after the last page has been turned This gripping memoir illuminates the fearsome experiences of a Holocaust child survivor with the intelligence and wisdom of an adult's retrospection." -Henryk Grynberg, Author of The Jewish Wars and The Victory, Children of Zion, and Drohobycz, Drohobycz: True Tales from the Holocaust and Life After.

In 2003, Cox was leading a normal life and experiencing no health problems. He had a successful law practice, was actively involved in sports such as tennis and golf, and was an avid outdoorsman. He and his wife were empty nesters and now had time to travel. As he was undergoing his annual physical checkup, he noticed the doctor listening more intently to his heartbeat. After several tests, the doctor delivered a shocking diagnosis"""You have a serious heart murmur caused by a defective valve that can only be treated through open heart surgery." During the next several weeks as he prepared for his surgery, his faith was challenged, and his prayer life shifted into a higher gear. Days after his surgery, Cox awoke in his dimly lit hospital room, not knowing where he was or why he was in the hospital. As his wife explained to him his situation and condition, he lay back into his bed, and as tears filled his eyes, he thanked God for answered prayers and drifted off to sleep reciting Psalm 23. This experience brought to life verse 4 of the most quoted Psalm and ushered the author safely through his valley of the shadow of death, which in his case was a serious illness. All human beings will face and endure the difficulties of many sorts and proportions. Ultimately, we will all face physical death. The Christian, by virtue of his or her faith, will not go through these trials alone. God is near and will walk with us through whatever valley we may find ourselves in. It is when we are face to face with the shadow of death that we must deepen our trust in God and find comfort in his presence.

This book is written for all of the women and men that are already incarcerated and for those who are getting ready to take a journey to prison. So many times we wonder how could I have gotten myself into this mess or why me? My answer to you is why not you? A person sentenced to a term in prison, can either do their time or let their time do them. Although, you feel what’s the use, I have no control over anything that happens. I disagree; your control lies in the Master’s Hands. It’s not so much your going to prison, but it is what you do while you are in prison. Women and men alike go to prison with the mentality I’m bad or I can make it through this, but not so. I’m sure you have heard the saying, make the money, don’t let the money make you, well the same it is with prison. Do your time, don’t let the time do you, because whether you believe it or not, time can and will do you. How do I know? I am glad you asked. Anyone that goes to prison whether guilty or innocence, once they are released and return back to prison or if they are bitter and not better; guess what, they did not do the time the time did them.

Author: Kermit Alexander

In this heart-wrenching memoir, former NFL star Kermit Alexander tells the devastating true story of the horrific massacre of his family and his subsequent years of despair, followed by a spiritual renewal that showed him a way to rebuild his family and reclaim his life. On the morning of August 31, 1984, in the South Central section of Los Angeles, three armed men broke into a house, brutally murdering two women and two young boys. The victims were Ebora Alexander, Dietra Alexander, Damani Garner, and Damon Bonner—the mother, sister, and nephews of retired All-Pro cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers Kermit Alexander. In his own words, Kermit Alexander finally shares the full story of what happened to his loved ones and the aftermath of that tragic day. He recounts the hours leading up to the massacre, and how afterward he lost himself in the LA underworld, pleading, bribing, and threatening in a search for answers. He describes his journey through the “wilderness” of despair—the years of isolation living out of his car, broke, depressed, and sick. We also learn about his coming-of-age in 1950s LA, the following decade he spent in the NFL, the events leading up to that fateful August day, and finally the shocking truth behind the murders. Kermit opens up about his darkest hours, but also what it took to turn his life around, rebuild his family, and ultimately find peace. Ominous and intense, powerful and uplifting, tragic and triumphant, The Valley of the Shadow of Death is more than a rendering of one man’s adversity; it’s testament to the value of family and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming loss.
