As a young man runs through the forest, he looks back to see the blood red eyes of the Indian Devil coming after him. A few moments later, he passes through a portal and is sent into the past—the first step of his Awakening. As the young man reflects on a childhood filled with more illness than good times, he remembers the Shaman, an Indian medicine man, who eventually healed him and named him Fire Hawk. After Fire Hawk decides he too wants to become a Shaman, he must ask the Shaman Council, Shakawl, for approval before he can become an Apprentice, and then pass a sacred test to demonstrate he is worthy of learning the Shakawl’s secrets. Unfortunately there are many Indian Devils who will do anything to steal powers—including kill. As his destiny to become the most powerful Shaman in the world rises up to meet him, the young man must follow his Heart and rely on help from his friends to evade the one who tirelessly hunts him before he can realize his purpose and learn forgiveness. In this engaging tale, a young man facing significant challenges embarks on a spiritual journey to greatness where he discovers that his most important power in life is believing in himself.

Friendly Fire

Author: Scott A. Snook
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 9781400840977
Release Date: 2011-09-19
Genre: Social Science

On April 14, 1994, two U.S. Air Force F-15 fighters accidentally shot down two U.S. Army Black Hawk Helicopters over Northern Iraq, killing all twenty-six peacekeepers onboard. In response to this disaster the complete array of military and civilian investigative and judicial procedures ran their course. After almost two years of investigation with virtually unlimited resources, no culprit emerged, no bad guy showed himself, no smoking gun was found. This book attempts to make sense of this tragedy--a tragedy that on its surface makes no sense at all. With almost twenty years in uniform and a Ph.D. in organizational behavior, Lieutenant Colonel Snook writes from a unique perspective. A victim of friendly fire himself, he develops individual, group, organizational, and cross-level accounts of the accident and applies a rigorous analysis based on behavioral science theory to account for critical links in the causal chain of events. By explaining separate pieces of the puzzle, and analyzing each at a different level, the author removes much of the mystery surrounding the shootdown. Based on a grounded theory analysis, Snook offers a dynamic, cross-level mechanism he calls "practical drift"--the slow, steady uncoupling of practice from written procedure--to complete his explanation. His conclusion is disturbing. This accident happened because, or perhaps in spite of everyone behaving just the way we would expect them to behave, just the way theory would predict. The shootdown was a normal accident in a highly reliable organization.
