My Country, My Take

The Journey of an American Son

Richard Lira

“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.

As a result, you will not only be proud of your country, but you will also fall in love with it all over again, from the Founding Fathers to the Constitution, to our rich heritage, to the pride in our police, to the nobility of military experience.

His stories on the celebrities he has worked with affords us a backstage look into our heroes. You will smile time and time again as he banters with Mariah Carey, Al Pacino, Andy Garcia, the American Idol hosts, John Ritter, Gladys Knight, Quincy Jones, Aaron Spelling, Snoop Dogg and many others.

He loves genuine people, soul music, LA sports teams, Kobe Bryant, loyalty, his beloved mother, being kind to others, his faith in God and his beautiful children.

This is a remarkable man with a big heart for his country and her people. It is a must-read for every American. Thank you, Richard!
