Millions of Americans saw this Super Bowl commercial...but not the whole story.
This video was broadcast yesterday as a Super Bowl commercial, but in its edited version, as the complete original version was considered "too controversial" for American TV. Watch the complete Journey video here. It was sent to me at 2 am by a writer / publisher friend who knows the challenges of my writing journey and the focus of my book project. I stood in my kitchen and cried, and then grabbed my pen and fired up my PC and kept writing. Stories like these need to be told. Now.
