Jim Moeller, the author of Unpacked Memories, believes that within each of us is a host of lifetime memories. These memories, if not passed on to the kids and grandkids, will eventually die.
Journaling for over 40-years, Jim has more than 6000 entries of reflective thoughts and personal experiences from early childhood up to present day. Stories include an account of his kidney donation to someone he had never met. Other stories come from his 40 plus years in a 12-Step program, as well as his military days flying jets on and off aircraft carriers.
From Unpacked Memories:
The young boy looking at me repeatedly screamed, “Help me! I’m going to die!”…I yelled back, “You aren’t going to die! You need to grab hold of something!”…“I’m going to die! Help me!”…….
Growing up in Maria Stein, Ohio, we had a close-knit group of guys. There was Nick, Joe, Paul, Dick, Don, and me. There were others, but the six of us were a team.
We’re traveling at 160 mph, descending to an invisible ship hidden in the dark and dense fog….At three-quarter mile, we are just seconds from the flight’s conclusion, whatever it may be.
Each of the stories helped to mold Jim into who he became.
