Charles Cross lives by a philosophy that you do not have to remain who and where you are in life. His autobiography reflects that belief as he relates how a gang leader became a compassionate preacher, how a man that faced certain death over and over again came to live so fully, and how a man who lost everything gained more than he could have imagined. Key to that transformation was his shifting attitude towards authority. Initially, Cross sought independence by challenging those around him. Yet it is when he recognized and accepted the presence of a higher power in his life that he became self-actualized. With honesty and without apology, We Each Get a Turn tells Crossas incredible story and in so doing, invites readers to consider their turn.As I had predicted, on my sixteenth birthday, my dream materialized in the form of a red, high performance 1966 Ford Mustang, a beautiful car. A year ... I was getting a stubborn, tenacious streak and had a serious problem with authority.
