What You Need to Know About Me:
Hello! I am a anxious to share with the world my take on PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. My soon to be released book, Soldier with a Backpack Living and Dying Simultaneously, promises to be more than a book. It will prove to be a tool to face the monster within. Living in a world taking mankind away from its true nature of whom God created us to be have serious repercussions.

PTSD is such an extremely personal experience yet it effects the world in a very impersonal way. Through the hidden agendas of selfish and greedy people, innocent people are victimized daily through the hands of human choices. Our soldiers should not return home after war to live a private life of victims to society. And, our children should not have to grow up stressed out and traumatized by adult choices that leave them not- diagnosed- victims of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

We can come up with all the modern sayings forever and think the old sayings are irrelevant. For instance, “What the world needs now is love.” Yeah right! Just like everybody needs Jesus…… At the end of the day, these old sayings stand true for the absence of this reality is why mankind is being killed by mankind. I still have hope for us. My message promises to leave seeds of hope and love. From my heart to your heart I present a truth that will set you free from a world that thrives on murder of the heart.

How do people really come to care about another human being?

Is it a natural quality that we are born with? 

Is it something we have to learn? 

Many people in the world today simply choose not to care…

We tend to be so consumed in our everyday routines of life that we forget our own self-value.

Days appear to be going by now at a faster pace than usual.  It is as though we do not have enough hours in a day to accomplish all we desire.  Because of this…

Love Will Not Be Denied

We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way…

When you wake up in the morning, you should be helping God wake you up because you have a strong desire to get on with your day.  Purpose is the acceptance of being in the world but not of it.  You trust God with your life, you listen to guidance.  The world does not seem as noisy…

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the”renewing of the mind” is desire. You must want to be different (and intend to be) before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact.  You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are…

Today we are going to slow down and see how important we are to our self.  We need our self to learn, grow and love.  What is needed by everyone is space to see.  When our lives are filled with clutter of things, people and activity, we…

When I look at my life today, I am thankful for having two wonderful sons who have grown up to be two spiritual and strong young men. I have to be honest and admit I find it quite amazing how God blessed our journey for the outcome brings me to tears.

We Get Tired

Sometimes I think we have to be reminded of who and what we are.  We are children of God.  It does not get any better than that.  We are here to allow our true selves to be known in a world starving for love.  Letting go and letting God  allows for us to be a brilliant light.  

True we have weathered many storms and often times we get tired.  When I say we get tired, I am talking about that kind of tired that has not anything to do with being physically tired.  I'm talking about all…

Thank you for the friendship! Your blogs are great. I feel Obama has a good chance of becoming President. With the war still going on and gas prices still rising, plus every time you visit the grocery store the price on everything keeps going up, he may surely be welcomed as hope. Although the rich will still vote republician, all the big CEO's of companies who out source in Asia, making huge profits and taking jobs out of this country will remain on the Rep. side no matter what. Right now the average American needs and wants change from the Bush Adm., let's just hope they vote. I agree with you that this is eerie, but I feel he is a good man. Perhaps for once people will look at the man not his color.

Hello neighbor, I was born and raised in Youngstown. I relocated to Columbus in 95. So far, the Fibro has disabled me but I fight against it daily. Tell your friends to keep pushing forward and do a little, rest a lot.
