Children of the Edict
by Madelyn Rohrer
From 1980 to 2015, China’s one-child-per-family edict created upheaval and tragedy. Today, tens of thousands of people in their twenties, thirties, and forties live in China without identities, their existence denied because they are “illegal” as the forbidden additional children hidden by their parents. But legal or illegal, biological or adopted, these generations are the future of China: its workforce, leadership, and interface with the rest of the world. In Children of the Edict, Heo Wong uncovers family secrets that cause his life and the lives of those around him to unravel. Government mandates that never affected him suddenly become personal and life-changing. Walk with the Wong family through medical epidemics, persecution, incarcerations, a timely act of nature, and a world sporting event. Feel the guilt and rejection of a time gone by, and then acceptance and forgiveness . . . and love. Share their longing for personal freedom and the anticipation of a changing China.

For thirty-three years, the football rivalry between West Point and Notre Dame provided countless thrills to fans across the country. Yet, both schools decided to end the series at the peak of its popularity after the 1946 game, which many consider to be the “Game of the Century. ”Black Knights and Fighting Irish traces the history of one of the most storied rivalries in college football. However, it’s also a story of a nation emerging from years of carnage and sacrifice, learning to again enjoy the pleasures of sports and community.
