A Message to Garcia is a timeless message. It is a message about teamwork, success, and individual fortitude. George Bernard Shaw poignantly stated people who say it cant be done should t interrupt those who are doing it. A Message to Garcia is an essay of warning for those who say it cant be done, and a celebration of those who are doing it. From a philosopher and a writer who started as a socialist and eventually became a stalwart defender of enterprise and American kw-how - and ultimately flashed from existence on earth as a victim aboard the RMS Lusitania - the message further receives an ordained timeless poignancy.
