Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting - Enough is Enough
    The Gulf series is dedicated to the young men and women of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Parkland Florida. You are the tip of the spear piercing the shield the demagogues hide behind. Courage, with poise, while under fire, creates legend. Thanks for standing up to be counted.

Peace & Love,
Rick Beck

Prologue

     The Gulf of Mexico was the perfect place for Clay Olson and Ivan Aleksa to finish growing up. Uprooted from the only home he knew, it didn't take Clay long to realize, in spite of losing his lifetime friends, he'd ended up in paradise, and he was going to make the most of it.
     Ivan, content in the house his grandfather built on the beach, never intends to leave, but does, when his brother is lost. When Clay tells Ivan, 'You're the only one who can find him.' The Gulf of Love becomes embroiled in a tale of Clay, earning his stripes as a marine biologist, while Ivan searches for Boris.
     Love is never easy and rarely simple. In this case it strains love to the braking point as our two heroes are in different places doing what they're desitened to do.
     Clay has his family, Sunshine, and Dylan to sustain him while he waits for Ivan. For the most part Ivan is on his own and doing his best to gather enough information to make the trip to Southeast Asia advisable, but a trip into a war zone is never advisable, especially when you're on your own.
     Clay waits. Ivan searches. Dylan grows, while Harry juggles his interests to get the outcome he wants for his budding marine biologist, never knowing if it will turn out OK in the end.


Note: It is suggested the reader start with book one in order to immerse oneself in the entire experience.
