What are Ersula's Essays about? There is good soul to be found in them blended with a beautiful, melodic flow of artistic words akin to the most delicate, yet powerful waterfall. Brimming with soul and insightfulness, Ms. Odom takes us on an empathetic, often nostalgic journey to explore deeper the heartbeat of humanity. She pulls out her weapons against mass discrimination of historical proportion and aims straight for racial stereotyping, busting it wide open. She illustrates how to take adversity and morph it into opportunity through her profound observations of life. After reading these fine essays, you can't help but realize that Ms. Odom has forced you to understand that one person's perspective on events cannot stand alone. There must be a mix of different perspectives, or else compromise is impossible, and the society is doomed to eternal chaos. Thank you, Ms. Odom ... thank you for your insight.
