As young Petros maneuvers the hallways of the Hellenic American School for the Arts, it’s the ice cream man, who stops by at recess, from whom he learns the most. Just one year shy of making it into high school, Petros challenges the strict rules of his school while also trying to follow the strict rules of his traditional Greek home in a tough neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens.

When he finally gets the chance to go to the specialized high school his brother now attends, his hopes and efforts are challenged by all the authority figures around him, except for his newfound friend, Mulvaney.

Meet Judy Fischer

Judy Fischer is our fourth author in our series. She is the author of “He Fell from the Sky”.

I am an author, a teacher, a nana and a mother

With a thousand different stories to offer

Years of experiences under my belt

Love, sadness, loss and success.

 

The daughter of a man who married late in life

Who took a much younger woman, my mother as his wife

She married him for security and financial strength

I became the product of their bond, instead of wealth

 

A victim of civil war, I was robbed of my home

A daughter of a revolution, I lost my comfort zone

A refugee, an immigrant at a tender age

I sailed across the ocean, during a storm’s rage

 

I adopted a new country, swearing to its flag

With the clothes on our backs and only a single bag

A foreign language, a new city, displaced, ragged and poor

Thankful to Canada for opening her door.

 

A latch-key kid, I went to school, embracing my new life

My parents worked, they struggled, they toiled to provide

I had their love but their time I craved

Not really understanding the future they had paved

 

Education, example, love, devotion and travel

My parents had given it to me all

I am grateful for their guidance and sacrifice

Their efforts, patience and love did suffice

 

As a teenager, I travelled to all different lands

Finding the wonders of nature small and grand

And in every port, I left a piece of me

Giving my heart to young men willingly

 

As time went by, true love I found

And luckily, I was homeward bound

Destiny however soon upstaged my life

I did not become his partner in life

 

The teacher emerged, a new role to embrace

To educate, mould, to guide human race

Each young mind, my canvas and sponge to fill

My vocation, my obligation I was ready to fulfil

 

I met a man, someone I did not know well

He filled my emptiness and into his web I fell

To replace a love I missed so much, I relented, I committed

I promised to love him and so we wed

 

Two beautiful children blessed my world

However, for true love, my heart still yearned

After years of disappointment, heartache and grief

My marriage disintegrated, I turned another leaf

 

Life goes on and so did mine, with another man

Someone who gives me the freedom and is my biggest fan

I can now write the stories I have saved well

Those which developed and are ripe and ready to tell.

 

I write about love, I write about tolerance and peace

I believe in harmony, balance, equality and bliss

I see the beauty on this earth, the beauty in man’s soul

My stories blend and capture the essence of all of this.

 

My only fear I have today

Is that I cannot have enough time to say

All the thoughts about life I weave

Those words are the ones I want to leave.

The historical development of the human species has impacted our world with numerous changes, which have altered natural ecological formats beyond what could have been perceived during ancient human history. Humanity has inundated the Earth with such vastness it has caused disarray and loss of natural balance among what are viewed as lesser beings. The terrestrial non-human life forms have been challenged to adapt to the ubiquity of human imposed negative influences. Wolves have been an earthly presence for nearly a million years functioning the same as they do currently. Wolf and human character traits are amazingly similar. Ancient human hunter-gatherer civil design formed and operated exactly like we observe present day wolves. Tribes were small in number, socially connected, and completely reliant on unity and harmonious function installed as a means of survival. The wolf pack is a perfected uniform social order and these wolves are among the most adaptable planetary organisms. They function and survive in the harshest climates and remain a presence especially in high latitudes. I was inspired to create a story displaying the importance and necessity of predators like wolves to be allowed opportunity to continue as a viable species. Ecological balance is dependent on predatory animals as a means to gain longevity. Natural science has only recently truly understood the importance of wolves in the arctic and other remote regions of the world. It’s a hope as the human species confronts its future wolves will be included.
