I Can't Hear The Walls
About the Book
" I Can't Hear The Walls" This book attempts to bring to light the beauty in the diversity of all human beings as we struggle to survive, cope and realize our dreams. The dreams in this book are those of people with varying types of disabilities and what they dream about. The book takes us into those dreams and then, interactive with the reader who goes past the center page, it exposes the reader to the moments involved in the dreams coming true. It is hoped that through acceptance and understanding that this book will demonstrate to all of us creatures who live disabiling lives, that there are no walls - nothing to shatter our hopes as long, as we dream.
About the Author
Marilyn Maple, Ph.D. is retired from the University of Florida where for 30 years she produced educational media for six medically related colleges. Her first children's book, "On The Wings of a Butterfly", was written at the request of terminally ill children who wanted to know about dying. This book is in its second printing and has found a home in Hospices and Aids Clinics. The book is published by Parenting Press, Seatle Washington. Her second children's book "The Refuge" was written about a retirement village for wild animals. In this book she addresses the problems of the animals, all of whom demonstrate human disabilities or problems, such as a lion who has a cleft palate and lisps when he roars, a Bengal tiger who suffers depression because his sister died, and an albino skunk who was not acceptable to his family because he was white and different. This book was published by Trafford Publishing.
