In 1920, while campaigning for the office of president, Warren G. Harding said in a campaign speech, “America’s present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums, but normalcy.” That is where America finds itself today.

America: Standing Strong,” brings together investigative reporters, scholars, scientists, medical professionals, and an endless string of quotes from respected voices across the spectrum to examine the events of recent years, not what we already know, but what we may not, or have yet to acknowledge, in our quest for reformation.

A wave of mental exhaustion has swept across America beginning with the extreme political polarization, the pandemic that has taken thousands of lives, the shutdown of the economy and jobs lost, the Black Lives Matter movement followed by racial uncertainty, the 2020 election, and the false allegations that the election was rigged, the January 6 insurrection of our capital, supply chain shortages, high prices on just about everything, and climate changes that have led to droughts, violent storms, and out of control fires. All have coalesced into one of the most cataclysmic periods in recent memory and have left a lasting impact on our society to the point that no one knows what to believe or who to trust anymore.

Along with all the ugliness, divisiveness, anger, and negativity in recent years, there’s been overwhelming noise coming from an endless flow of misinformation and wild conspiracies. It’s everywhere, often inflicting confusion, pain, fear, and serious consequences for all Americans. And yet, despite adversity, Americans have always stood strong because they value the Constitution that has allowed our country to flourish and prosper, and we will again.

“America: Standing Strong” presents an in-depth examination of what went wrong and how we can once again move forward.

 


Interview with Robert J. Emery

    What would it be if you could tell your younger writing self anything?

    In my writing, whether fiction or non-fiction, to slow down and make it as good as I can. I’m always anxious to complete a book. I’m getting better at it, however. Now, there is never a line that I can’t rewrite and make better.


    What are the most important magazines for writers to subscribe to?

    I prefer reading the masters; I learn more from them than any article.


    What do you owe the real people upon whom you base your characters?

    Good question, and I honestly have no answer since I refrain from writing fiction based on real characters.


    What is the first book that made you cry?

    “Moby Dick,” believe it not.


    Does writing energize or exhaust you?

    Energizes me. I love writing 6-7 hours a day


    Do you try to be original or to deliver what they want to readers?

    I write first for me and hope readers will enjoy what I’ve come up with. I don’t believe in writing “what’s trending.” I write what interests me.

    Where did your love of books/storytelling/reading/writing/etc. come from?

    Around the age of 11 or 12, I began writing short stories. I don’t know why I just did. Later, I started writing screenplays and spent my adult life as a writer, producer, and director of both motion pictures and TV productions.
