The CrossRoads Diaries
The title of the book has significant meanings. “Cross” is for the One who saves us all, and “Roads” represents the paths we travel. “Diaries” represent a written account about what has occurred at a place and time that may include emotions and reflections. We all encounter crossroads in our lives.
Crossroads are a place of decision because there are several paths that can be taken. We can go straight, left or right, or turn around and try to go back from where we came. The “Crossroads” in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam was a nickname for a difficult place for the Mobile Riverine Force. It was an intersection of a river and canal situated between My Tho and Ben Tre and known for hundreds of firefights.
