Wow! Not in a million years would I, Melvin Taylor, have thought that I would have written a book. Historically, I have always been someone who ran away from anything that related to writing. I did graduate college with a Bachelor's degree and am working in the brokerage industry with several securities licenses, but whenever it came to writing any kind of stories about me, an event or simply updating my resume, I would reach out to my sister, Carol Taylor (the editor of the award-winning, bestselling Brown Sugar erotic fiction series and more recently The Ex-Chronicles, which was released in March 2010). I have always been a strong believer that whatever you are seeking in life is seeking you. I now believe that sometimes what you are not seeking might be seeking you.  Instead of running away from it, turn around and run towards it, embrace it. This manuscript is proof of that fact.  This idea came to me about a month after 9/11 while I was doing my daily meditation.

I used to live in Jersey City, N.J., and my commute to work was a 10-minute walk from my apartment to the PATH train.  I would ride the PATH for three stops into the World Trade Center and then catch a connecting train, which I would ride two stops to the Wall Street area where my job was located.  About a month before the attack on the towers, a voice came to me out of nowhere and told me as I was commuting, "When you exit the PATH train, if you see your connecting train, run and catch it because there might not be another train after that one". The morning of September 11, 2001, at 8:45 a.m., my connecting train was pulling into the World Trade Center as I exited the PATH train. I did run for it and made my connection, and that train was the last train to exit the WTC that day! I witnessed people jumping out of the windows.  I was right there when the first tower went down. I ran for my life that day. About a month after this incident, that same voice came to me with this idea, and I thought to myself, "Man, how are you going to get this done?" I did try to ignore it. I tried to get more wrapped up in my job, but I spoke to a couple of friends and my kids about it. They all loved the idea and told me to go for it. I told myself it was impossible, and I moved on. At least that's what I thought.  The characters from the idea were all reaching out to me, demanding to be heard and introduced to the public. So I said to myself, you listened to the voice during September 11, 2001, and now you need to listen to this idea and make it happen for yourself.
