Chapter 8: Success
Success is not just having a lot of money or being powerful; it is choosing to stand as equals with everyone. If we have faith in God, He will create a community of resistance through us. Kinship is even better and is more value less than success. The most impactful story was about Soledad and her sons. Her oldest son, Ronnie, was in the military and was killed when he came home to visit her. She mourned for a few months before she finally decided break out of the grief. That same day, her second son, Angel, was killed. While in the hospital, Soledad saw a boy who was from the gang that killed her son, and she prayed for him.
