Issues regarding compliance with methods for early breast cancer detection
The subject of violence has always been one of great interest to me, and I see this interest reflected in people everywhere, from all walks of life. I often think about motorists who slow their cars to view accidents--surely most people give such scenes at least a cursory glance. It has been my observation that we as a society seem preoccupied with movies and television programs involving high levels of action and violence. There is something, too, about a fight in public that usually gathers a crowd. Even the sports world, with its football, automobile racing and boxing, proves to be an arena of violent action, and I think many people who follow these events do so largely because they are attracted by the danger involved. These stories explore the issue in various forms, but always with violence at or near the center. While the scenes may differ in the type and degree of violence, all share the theme of people coming to terms with their exposure to violent acts. It was my overall intention to allow my readers to determine for themselves whether or not the violence depicted is justified or even necessary, and also to provoke them to question their own responses to violent acts.
