Primer of Human Virtue: The Creation: A Letter Published by Outskirts Press

In this inspirational new work for all ages, author and grandfather Donald Jordan passes on to his grandchildren a compassionate recounting of the simplest, yet strongest of human virtues that serve as a kind and generous worldview for young hearts.

Columbus, GA, December 07, 2011 --( Author Donald Jordan announced today the release of The Creation: A Letter, published by Outskirts Press. Jordan’s work is a simple, tender vehicle that readers can use to share with their children and grandchildren their own beliefs and values and to offer the virtues they most want to pass on to them in life.

Realistic, yet compassionate, The Creation: A Letter encourages all to share their basic beliefs and most fundamental values with their offspring, either by presenting to them Jordan’s own comfortable and inspirational text, or by using it as an inspiration to write their own “letter” to their children or grandchildren.

Jordan’s encouragement to be kind, responsible and honest is coupled with short, illustrative anecdotes, and he provides simple, but genuine guidance for the young to express gratitude, to forgive, to have faith and, most of all, to love. He writes:

“All our worldly ambitions and accomplishments ultimately pale against the power of love. However, instinctive love might seem, it does not develop naturally. It must be learned and cultivated.

“Love does not have to be returned. It is never divided. Instead it multiplies itself. Many flowers proliferate by casting their seeds. So too love grows stronger and more vigorous when it is freely given.

“Love is not just a feeling. It is a decision.”

Recalling some of his own hardships as well as his joys, Jordan suggests that true joy in life comes not from one’s circumstances or environment, but from a selfless inner spirit.

The Creation: A Letter provides quiet inspiration for adults and children alike as it carefully sets forth its message that love makes us truly human as well as truly divine.
