“My Country, My take” is a riveting memoir of a true American Son, Richard Lira. It is the story of a remarkable man who loved his mom and dad, survived the barrio in East LA, fought his way to the top of his profession as a security consultant to the celebrities, adored his amazing kids and defended his beloved country as a passionate patriot, having served in both the military and law enforcement.
Richard Lira is not shy about his likes and dislikes about the forces that define the land he loves. You may not agree with all his “takes”, but they are as honest as an Iowa sunset.
What is unique about this narrative is that it is refreshingly candid, there is nothing conniving or compromising about it. Richard’s thoughts and experiences come forth as a ladle of ice water on a muggy day.
