About the Book

In one of the world’s most beautiful places, amid swaying palms and ocean breezes, Ken Williams battles death and hopelessness. In There Must Be Honor, Ken traces a journey behind the golden façade of Santa Barbara’s scenery and into the panting heart of its streets. He calls for honor, for remembrance, for compassion, for the least of us—the hardcore homeless, many of whom are, like him, veterans of our nation’s wars.

Remember the battlefield with him, and then return to the present as he faces down new enemies in another kind of struggle—the struggle to create compassion. Meet the people he serves, the friends he makes, and the loved ones he loses in his daily journey. There Must Be Honor represents his call for others to join him on that road to hope and a better future. Ken has won numerous accolades and awards for his many years of dedication, and his writing in this volume gives poetic reality to what is often an invisible struggle.
