Don’t Label My Kid! – In The News!

dr john

When Dr John DeGarmo contacted me about possibly contributing a piece for his upcoming December Blog Posting, I was without words. It’s not often you get an invitation from the guru of your trade to actually share your expertise. With more accolades and accomplishments in the Foster Care field than anyone I have known, I was caught off guard to say the least. I can honestly say that Dr. John and his wife are the only couple I know of who have had more foster kids live with them than I.

I have had 45! To be asked to give my opinion on an issue that is constantly under scrutiny by state and federal regulators was very satisfying and meant a lot to me.

I am glad to share both a proud moment of his – him and his wife being recognized by none other than Good Morning America and a very proud moment for myself, being honored as the guest poster on his incredible blog. First watch the clip below of GMA rightfully recognizing Dr. John’s work, and then please take a moment to read my first published post on his website. I am looking forward to working with Dr. Degarmo on future endeavors to keep the voice of children in need of parents alive..

The Most Powerful Statement To Me So Far This Year…

If you really think on it, most of the things we say and do to help others end up with some potential of praise for us. We thrive on patting ourselves on the back. Its just the way it is..Our Self centeredness.

The real question is- what will we do when we know NOBODY else is watching …

Yeah Buddy…that is how we can truly test.

Hard Core Missions- INDIA. Can Your Group Or You Help Them?

INDIA- Hard Core Ministry-INDIA

 

Every once in a while I see someone doing someone doing something that is just a little bit extra special to me. This is one guy who I would like to help, and I would myself if I could right now.

Four years ago Dileep ( Di- Leep) Raja of India decided to start a Christian church right smack in the middle of hindu India. He had 15 people or so and they all are way below poverty level, most who are able to work – do day labor for 3$ / Day. They have no building to worship in so they find places or they just meet up to actually do ministry. What ministry can they possibly be? They have no building, no money, and not even enough bibles to pass out. They found a way.

These people take the little bit from Dileeps income at his regular job and they go out and feed the Hindus rice and beans that they could very well use themselves.

Now many Hindus have joined their Christian mission and their group is up to 70 people! So they have growth but no way of building to keep up or even supply bibles. Right now for example they have been praying for a 300$ donation to get 100 bibles out to their hindu neighbors and their members too. They can really use a few bucks each month to save for a tent to a little room to rent to worship in and they deserve it. Heck I hear people complaining when the air conditioning is not cool enough in our 250k$ church buildings. Imagine  the difference.

If you or a group you are in, a church group, or any group can help, there is contact info on this link I posted, which is their little website by the way. Quite moving and humbling if you look at the pictures on the site. Do what you can please. Thanks.

What  If You- Actually Were A Blog? Who Would You Have A Crush On?

We read each others posts, look at pictures , but very few of us actually know each other. It would be hard to say that you like someone based on their writing, since that is not who they are…

But, and I realize this may be off of the beaten path a tad, but what if you were a blog! 

Imagine you were a blog for a moment and you had to pick out a ” blog crush” – but unlike other crushes- you get to pick 3 blog crushes.

Who would be 3 of your top blog crushes?

For me , I like a blog with a good heart, one that keeps themselves up, has their priorities in order and appearances never hurt. Also some sort of clear purpose or mission.

I am for sure not just lookin for some eye candy alone either… there is more too an attractive blog than outward looks..and no easy blogs..you know the type, two likes and a comment and their yours. Hussies. 

 Spiritual blog is hard is also a draw for me .

Oh and by the way there are no LGBT or gay blogs so any blog crushes are purely platonic and without any reference to sexuality.

My top 3 (although many come to mind ) are

1- mewhoami- keeping perspective

2-gottafindahome- incredible mission for homeless

3-hunt4truth- objectively and persuasively speaking about topics that are important.

Now remember we are not having crushes on people, since we don’t know one another . Strictly blog crushes…

Lastly , why do you think you selected the ones you do. In the end , they are likely blogs  most like you yourself., blog!

Another Body … Just Another Bum.. A Drunk Most Likely… Should Have Made A Life For Himself. Right? No. That Could Be Us…. { Turning The Corner- Don’t Label My Kid! Lets Do It!} 2017- Taking It Up A Level..We Need Each Other..

Mental Health. Looks like this pretty much , right?  I took this picture 2 days ago. You know why? I assumed when I contacted the law to pick the body up they may want some documentation of when and where I found the guy.  Not that its any big deal, I see these bums all day long here in Daytona. Heck You and me could have ended up like that if we didn’t make the right choices, right? Whatever. Who are we kidding. But for the grace of God, there goes me.

In this case I got to walk away feeling better then I initially thought. You see, when I realized he was stiff, and smelled bad I just instinctively went to see if he had any ID to give the law. I was quite shocked when he about jumped when my hand touched his jacket pocket. He was alive! Sort of. Mike, as I later learned was his name was so scared I came to hurt him that he was shaking, I sat down with him and told him it was all good and I help people like him. I am a social worker. I help all people. No matter the age, race, issues, addictions, etc.

I know you cant see all that well in this picture as far as his age and all, but after we had talked awhile he shared a little about his life. Take a guess as to his age? Just do it, ball park.

Mike is 51.

I was able to offer him some options that he never knew were there. I know because that is my gift. We all have gifts, and in my case I have the ability to identify what people need to make their situation the very best it can be. I have done it for my entire career as a clinical social worker. I have worked with teens, parents, mental health patients, addicted folks, poverty stricken, violent people, even the most seriously developmentally disabled people in the world, literally. I have been called on to improve the quality of life for those who are deaf, dumb, blind, and aggressive. Can you imagine? The people in that arena that I ran programs for were abused so badly as babies that even though many were born ” normal” they had some of the most evil parents and caregivers you could imagine. Tossed in dumpsters as babies left to die, left on the hot Florida beaches as infants simply because the mom or dad was too lazy to bring them to a fire station or another outlet who would gladly have taken them in.

I started a school for 60 felons, ages 11-18. Gang members, 12 year old kids running crack at 3am on school days for their own parents. I lived for 5 years with 45 teens who were sexually abused very severely. Every group of people I worked with I was so thankful to have a God given gift to see through the outside and meet the true need on the inside. Now, before anyone thinks I am bragging – it could not be further from the truth. I am so  ” ungifted ” in some areas that men should be – lol- I remember a time when I had my young boys with me in my truck and I noticed my wipers were bad. I could not see through them. I stopped at the Auto Zone , ordered up 2 wipers in a manly voice…and spent the next 30 minutes in the parking lot trying to figure out how to put the blades on until my 7 year old son took pity on me. He installed them in 5.

new life

If you have followed me long you will note that although I share my personal struggles, and trials, I have never laid out an ” I love me post” about my accomplishments in my gifts. One reason is because I realize it is a gift. I can help anyone, in any situation, no matter what the circumstances. I just don’t feel comfortable bragging about something that I was given. Oh, believe me – I can hang with the best of the braggers. I have the degrees, the awards and all that jazz. I could not even tell you where any of them are right now. I don’t care. I care about educating people and helping them save time, money and stress.

What I love most about what I do is I know every single job duty all those people and more have. But I don’t have to become each one. I sure can steer you to who will actually help you and who wants your money. I can tell you that in many cases I have not been able to get to the parent or family in time before they got taken for a ride to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars and more. That’s the reason I am so determined to hold providers of mental health, addictions, behavioral health, and juvenile delinquents accountable for what they do. I know what they should be doing – but you don’t. I am not a psychiatrist, but if you have ever read my home page ” mental heath- its a crazy business” you know I do not mince words. Why? I know the truth.. Do want to know how many doctors or psychologists, psychiatrists have written me nasty letters over the 4 years I have been slamming them? ZERO.

I am sharing this for a reason. I am hanging my shingle again. For 4 years I have poured my heart out on here about my entire life. Its time to help you all get to where you need and want to be. And I am asking you to trust your family or personal needs into my care. I make the same promise I have kept my entire career. I will NEVER leave you broken. An I will certainly never leave you broke.  I don’t discharge my families when they go through a rough patch financially. I love using my gift. You may have noticed I have never taken a dime for any thing here, I do not sell ads like some. This audience that you all are was hand picked. I have never connected to the internet, other then this WordPress sight.

Last check this blog has had visitors from 65 countries ( that I know of ) and followers from at least 25 that I know of. That’s not my doing. It is no accident. You all are here for a reason. I am here to help.

When Mike Carey came along and was willing to join with this mission, I was and still am ecstatic. Why? Because Mike and I share a similar passion. We both love to use our gifts to help others. We both will never leave anyone hanging until they are well.  I am gong to show you a real life example of how God has already used Mike in my own family. Most of you know I have 2 grown boys, and 2 baby girls. Well, babies to me, they are 5 & 10.

This is my baby Shelbi..

My baby had 72 sticks with a needle that her doctor insisted on to test for allergies. For nothing. Next up he said – blood work! No. No way.. But what can I do? Better late then never – I called our resident gifted man in the healing of diseases. He said ” you took her where” ? ( made me feel even lower lol) –  No more he said , get her on the phone with me tonight for a minute or two. I was thinking to myself-  Hello!! What was I thinking? Tonight Shelbi said hello to Mr. Mike for about 2 minutes, and 10 minutes later he says ” oh she has some poisoning in her system and a viral infection. Go to your local health food store and get 2 items ( like 5 bucks each) and in 7 days it will be gone.

HUH?? What? Why did I forget the other people I have sent to him who had major diseases go away? Anyways no blood work and that’s  Mikes gift.

If you need physical healing – take advantage of  this gift right in front f you . If its healing in any other area, call on me. I work on a case by case basis, until the job is done. I want you all to take this email address down.

Dontlabelmykid2@gmail.com – to help with Tj-

that is your direct line to me. I will be adding a toll free number as well but for now get me there. I will develop with you what I call a  “Plan of Care ”

There is NO issue you can throw at me that I havent done a hundred times. Confidentially we will put it all in place and work it out financially It sure would make me feel good if you all would entrust your needs to Mike and I. I thank you in advance . .

20170512_092453

With all we are trying to accomplish through this platform of Don’t Label My Kid!  It would really make a big difference if you all would commit to utilizing the gifts that Mike and  I have- for your own family. so that we can keep on helping others and continue trying to do what we do ..put pedophiles away -heal families -help addicts-  bring families together and just grow spiritually , emotionally and physically.

God Bless you all . Please Step up for this..

Who Am I- When Im Not Making Sure My Label Is Getting Its Publicity? 

When I worked in the alternative school settings one of the first things that troubled me -was when I introduced myself to the first 40 or 50 kids that I would be working with . 

In order to get to me -they were  expelled from high school (public) then also expelled from the next level alternative education program. What shocked me the most was not their attitude or the way they spoke or how they dressed.

It was  how they introduced themselves. Without fail at some point in the introductions on our one-on-one greeting with me,  the youth would include their  “label” or diagnosis from psychiatrist. 

For example – me ” Hi,  my name is Mr. P.” – most times they would begin with  “I’m Ryan I have intermittent explosive disorder” . 

Of course the younger kids couldn’t pronounce their diagnoses or didn’t really remember what it was,  but it was clear that they all had assumed the label assigned to them. They had allowed a space in tbeir God given  identity  to be occupied by a man made identity –  what another human being ( in a position of authority) had stamped them with. 

As the kids got more educated and what that label meant with the requirements were too be given that diagnosis and label they begin to fulfill the prophecy of the label they were given. I believe that there’s only a few reasons why. The first reason is that they were already in position of vulnerability.

It’s no different for us adults today regardless of our environment. Everyday in the feeds on WordPress  you see people constantly referring to their PTSD or Bi- Polar as almost a badge of honor.

The interesting part is most of the time when I go back and look at their name of their blog or what they do -they might be an artist or a poet or somebody involved in sports but completely  unrelated to their diagnosis. What do they choose to bring up and talk about ? Those are man -made, man- given labels.. So in order to test yourself  and find out who YOU believe you are, and just how much of your identity you have sold off to the devil – so to speak..

I will ask you this question and you have five words to answer. Number one two three four five and you’d put one word at each number.

Name the five things that describe who you are the best. One word each and remember now- if you find yourself struggling to decide whether you should put a positive attribute like I’m a nurse or I’m a carpenter- because you’re thinking well I’m depressed person or I have PTSD be assured that you have allowed your identity space to be sold out.

The good news is if you can take that back. You can only allow certain amount of time and effort to be dedicated to that. The most successful programs I have ever run and as far as I know that anybody has ever run in any area of mental health -addictions or behavioral health are those that absolutely focus on the skills and strengths of the person. Only when necessary do they pull out the “negatives ” or the weaknesses. Our society tends to highlight the weaknesses and we want to highlight it because it was on Dr. Phil , and in some cases we get rewarded socially for doing that. But the rewards are short term and short lived. So when you take this little 5 question quiz and if you had any trouble naming  five positive or even neutral attributes,  then you should re-think where you got that label and how to cut it off . 

Just a thought for today because they tell me I’ve always been a problem solver due to my ADHD.

 I don’t know. I think Im getting senile. I just saw Dr. Oz talking how about what vegetables help with that..I will tune in next time

Lol

INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE! WHY ARE PERVERTS GETTING REWARDED FOR KILLING KIDS VIA A SLOW PAINFUL DEATH BY MEMORIES?

 

Lets break this down..

Here we have just recently an attorney comforting another victim, and the article says hundreds more victims coming forward. Hundreds that is just from ONE or TWO freaks that got busted and the flood gates opened for others to come forward…

We know there are hundreds of thousands of victims not coming forward, because the rate of accountability is so low that just doing basic math- as a matter of fact quote the pedo-popes own figures- ONLY 1/50 priests are pedophiles….WOW- What a relief! That’s not so bad-right?? Even with his perverted math it still adds up to huge numbers.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/01/05/church-sex-abuse-victims-still-coming-forward/Qe4kWBAdkR4NWqDepiNEXM/amp.htm

Of course below we have the Pedo-pope himself quoting those bogus numbers ( as if those figures or ANY number would be ” acceptable”- below

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2690575/Pope-Francis-admits-two-cent-Roman-Catholic-priests-paedophiles-interview-Italian-newspaper.html

Oh No- Just when we were all going to sigh a breath of relief about those ” good ” numbers, we have a papal ” bullshit alert”

He slipped up a tad when he publicly said lets have mercy on the pedo-priest..but pope, you just said you hate the actions and will protect the children…

Mandatory robe check-

/http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2017/02/report-pope-francis-refuses-punish-pedophile-priests/

I could easily post 100 of these same documents …

So why in the world are we acting like we all don’t care? Why are the pussyfoot lawyers who act all tough on television on prosecuting these freaks always running scared from a group of child rapist -and murderers in the end? Scared? Really?? Woe.

I come up with only a few options as to why this global pedo-priest ring has been allowed not only to kill kids, but to mock us the public while they rape our kids?

1-The people who claim to be ” advocates like volunteer groups are still intimidated as many were victims themselves. I can validate that and verify it does occur..

2- But the lawyers who could be raking in billions for pursing these weirdos, could it be they are getting bought out by the church? Yes. But no way most or all.

3- Scary idea here but in todays world–could many of them BE PEDOPHILES? Yes. Its probable. But still no way enough to say that is the reason.

4-Maybe we live in a world today-unlike 50 years ago where we are so desensitized to crap that is as nasty as it gets that it doesn’t really bother us that little boys are getting ass raped every day with the blessing of the ” church”- after all we allowed a terrorist to be our president and even after he got busted financing the freaking MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD’S ARMS at 3 BILLION to us taxpayers, we put the sucker back in office for more punishment.

I must go with 4. We have lost ALL measure of morals, and decency and humanity in this world. For now that’s all I got. I can promise you this- I am not frightened by a gang of boy hoppers.

I just don’t get why the pope is not in prison with his flock of underling pedo-priests.

I plan on keeping my pie hole open and in there faces every single day until we crack this ring all the way up to the Vatican.

You see I don’t NEED to  ” speculate” – I HAVE THE EVIDENCE… I have asked before and will remind you today and each time I update- if we all cant take the time to share a post from ANYWHERE- if you don’t like my style fine- but NOT help.

Share another article. Make a phone call – ask some questions- we need more HEAT on them so the lame media will quit following Mrs. Jenner into the restroom for TMZ-

and force them to get involved. Do you all know if even those I know are my own followers utilized your network just like I am mine- as a group by tomorrow night we could reach more then 3 MILLION people!! That would get some attention.

                  DO  SOMETHING!- As hard as it sounds if we DONT do anything- we are just like pedophiles. I am a father of 4 and I cannot live with that thought in my head for 5 seconds. We should all just pitch in and buy them all little log cabins behind their churches to molest in comfort.

If you are lost in this and totally just don’t have a clue how to really help-

Then HMU!!! I can offer many ways other then blogging if that is not your preference..

I am at tjpetri16@gmail.com— anytime day or night

I am out–

 A Little About Me. The Guy Behind Don’t Label My Kid!- Tj -Up Close And Personal..**sorry for issues with link will have fixed in a few hours. ..

 

Well, I thought after 4 years maybe I should introduce myself… to my ” inner circle”.

 What you are about to read is all true folks- except for some rumor about the home in the background of the picture of my wife and I -being my ” Guest House” – Right… On a Social Workers salary? Not!…

Its actually just our own humble abode. We cannot afford ” guest houses”.

Ok, alright – just got a” friendly” nudge from my wife (ouch) to tell the ” whole ” truth. So It’s actually the Biltmore Hotel, and ” technically speaking” we used our life savings to spend 2 nights there 12 years ago…   Whats the big diff?

Some people are just dream-killers.

Anyhow this really is my story in a snapshot…    ..

Are You Staying Or Going….                                I Dare You To Move..

                                            Are You Staying ? Or Our You Going?

 

 

 

 

 

I am about to out into words a post that quite possibly could rank to me at least in the top 3 posts I have written here . I have posted 500+.  200 or so are on the light side, unrelated to my experiences in abuse, addiction, a family peppered with suicide, depression, violence, more depression and on it goes. I suffered through many , many days, weeks and even months crawling emotionally and spiritually  towards some imaginary finish line that I could not see.

Now even though I have enough in my mind and to fill many pages here, and planned on taking my time, just 30 minutes ago that plan was scrapped. Oh not for lack of stories good and sad, spiritual journeys that have been so unreal to some that they question why I maintain any faith at all in ” God” – much less a stronger faith then ever..(and those are my Christian friends!)

Nope, just I was preparing to start this post, something just drew me to glance at the new posts on reader before I started. Well,  just like most details in my life, this was no accident at all. Other than a little bump to my pride I am good with it now.. lol

 

A new friend , fellow blogger and gifted writer named Mehul Singla  just rearranged my plan 100% and he has no clue-yet !..He just today pushed some great “6 letter posts” out and asked for feedback. I gave him my 2 cents. A few minutes later I realized I was giving us both advice. So here is the new plan. I will spare you 30 minutes of sad stories and how my life has taken its odd turns- ONLY if you promise to do 2 things.

1- After you read this blip I am almost done with please watch this video. One of my very favorite singers in the world..Jon Foreman of  Switchfoot.

Jon has touched my life for 25 years, many by this very song.  One time I recall laying on the floor of a rehab at 29 withdrawing from medications, crying out for anyone to listen-when nobody believed in me anymore. Another maybe 3 years later when began to battle major depression while being used as a guniea pig. About 2 dozen medications later I got off them all- but not before the car wreck, then being sucker punched by a guy with brass knuckles which aside from 50 stitches in my eye socket cost me much memory.

I wont get into really bad stuff like my bone disease, failed hip replacement at 44 and 6 surgeries after that leaving my famiy homeless…

So watch it- Thats #1

 

Here is THEE point- Whatever your hole, your pit, your paralyzing loss, pain, or whatever…Jon’s cry to me in this song has always been the same- ” I Dare You To Move”-

If you google ” What is the song Dare You To Move about- Jon gives an overview of why, when, how that song just became…and how in the very hardest most tragic times, it was the answer to this question that in many ways determined his destiny on earth..as it does mine each day..

To my atheist, agnostic, not sure yet- tree huggers, beer chuggers and all of y’all -lol you know I love you all the same…but an interesting piece of trivia- Switchfoot is NOT a ” Christian” band… I have seen them 3x in person and their message is always the same-

  • a message of hope and healing. ( I even smoked a Newport at a concert one time)

I know, I know exactly what you are thinking… “Tj you live on the edge”-

Well, I have calmed down some ok?

(Now secretly, I think thats just what they are called to do- UNBEAT some people who have been bible thumped to near death -lol)

Just to encourage people and live it too..

#2 – It can be just between you and you – you and God- you and a palm tree- doesnt matter- but do this- Identify you “mud puddle.” To me my mud puddles are; one part dirt from our past, 1 part self pity,  1 part fear of what lies ahead if you DO move on and 1 part liking attention we get from being ” muddy” all the time…lol

I am sorry its just the language I use! Work with me…

 

Lastly- although this can be private…often when we do begin to identifythese things, we need someone or people to reach out to,…if you find yourself with a good idea of what your puddle of choice is, do not hesitate to email me in 100% certainty of absolute confidentiality. I have learned who to know and trust in my 25  years in social work..whether immediate counseling from a trusted private and free service to the most elaborate fancy shmancy beachsie rehab where you get your own laptop with your yogurt and personak trainer all in strict confidence. Remember, I have already been where most of you have, or need to be when it comes to identifying our areas of need. Its an everyday thing for me…

peace2you

Kids Own The Labels They Are Assigned..

When a child or a teen is ” diagnosed” and assigned a label, they begin to own the definition of the label. If for example, a teen is told by a doctor and his parents that he or she has ” anger management ” issues, they begin the process of fulfilling that ” calling ” on their life, just as kids who are constantly reinforced by their parents about their gifts and strengths tend to grow into those gifts.

So whatever the assigned label you give your child , and you openly discuss around them and with other adults, just remember  they are kids. They are looking to the people who make impressions in their life, and those they trust to tell them what and who they are. With adults, we have the choice to accept or reject any assigned tags or labels people give us.

Kids don’t have that option yet.  As I stress on the homepage, taking a child to the doctor and getting them a DSM diagnoses and some medicine is a whole lot deeper then just another doctors visit. It shapes their path from that point on. The fact that you take them there and concur with the doctor, just serves to reinforce to the child that the whole issue is in fact true.

I am not saying nobody should take a child to the doctor. What I am saying is that before doing so, do your homework, and find out if the problem you re having with them actually warrants a formal diagnoses. If it does then be supportive and honest with your child in overcoming it with the least amount of fanfare possible.

My Friend Dileep In India -A Saint!

Raja Dilp’s Ministry-India

 

I wanted to take a minute and introduce you all to a man who I have come to know in the last year named Dileep. He is from India and he is a full-time analyst for a day job. What he does with the rest of his time is incredible and worthy of a ” 7 ” minute read lol..

Dileep is a Christian who has a small congregation in a very poor part of Guntar, India. Very bad things happen to little children there to earn money and he struggles to help his own flock with their basic needs of food and clothing. However as you can see on the website in pictures, they are not concerned so much with their own needs as they are the country that they love so much and the people who cannot even get a meal of some beans and rice. They want people to be able to eat without committing horrendous crimes or just starving.

He leads his congregation in wrapping and delivering any small amounts of food they can get and delivering it to these starving people. Take a minute to look a the website, inside their church and the people. Look at the pride in their eyes also as they prepare meager amounts of food to deliver for the Christmas Holiday. To me, it is amazing.

We all complain at some time or another about not having this or that..when the truth is we Americans live in the top 4-5% of the world when it comes to luxuries. We just take them for granted.

The letter below is an actual recent one Dileep messaged me so I thought I would share it with you all. You can hear the humility in his words, and I can tell you its genuine. Last time I checked this blog has visitors or followers from more than 65 countries, including India. I am not going to ask you to do anything specific financially for the ministry, as we don’t do that here. But I sure would not mind if a bunch of us helped in whatever way we can. Small monthly gifts or a one time gift can feed more people there then you would believe. We spend more at a dinner out with our family then they do to feed beans to dozens of families.

So I am asking that you take a minute to glance at his site and read his short letter.

What happens from there is between you and him. What happens in India, stays in India, right? lol….Or do I have that confused with another place….Anyhow thanks for checking it out – He is a good, good man. I hope we can assist in some way.

EVERY CREATURE” According to this Scripture we are
preaching and spreading the Gospel in the remote
villages and tribal villages and we also distribute the
Bibles to the poor and those who cannot afford to get a
Bible.
In Our Ministry we show our Love towards
the poor,needy and Lost,As Jesus said in the Book of
Matthew 22:39 “AND THE SECOND IS LIKE UNTO IT, THOU
SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF.” According to this
Scripture we are showing our Love towards the Poor and
needy and Lost by providing them Food and Clothes,We
are doing this in order to show the Christ’s Love
because not only Gospel can save the people but also
the Christ’s love can changed the hearts of the people
and they can be saved in His Grace.

This Does NOT Work Parents!

This type of thing, besides being deceitful only serves to incite racist arguments. Whatever color a person is, trying to misrepresent them and then accusing the public of racism is weak. It happens all to much and although I am not saying people should make their child look really bad when they get in trouble, but don’t get all angry at people for calling them out for who they were at the time of the crime, or issue..

You cannot put lipstick on a pig.

BREAKING NEWS-ADDICTION SERIES 2017- Don’t Call Me ” Junkie” Anymore..

Well it has finally become somewhat official. Those of us who have lived through the hell of it knew this decades ago, but better late then never.

Just as Barry Manilow revealed his ” secret ” recently…(I knew he was really singing ” Randy your a fine..” not  ” Mandy“) lol

So it goes with the medical community and publicly acknowledging what some of us have known for decades or more. Like all other documented and proven diseases, addiction has finally gotten it’s “star” on the walk of shame. The bottom line here- and the take away for all you armchair experts who have referred to your loved ones or others as “Junkies” or ” druggies” is that those days are over.

Unless you would go to the cancer ward at a hospital and tell the patients to ” snap out of it” or ” get it together” -you have no right to say it to an addict. Remember one thing- not one addict on earth wants to be an addict. Let that sink in.  Its no news to those who have been fortunate enough to live through the hell of the disease.  Hopefully it will help millions in the future get the support of their loved ones that they deserve.

Tough love is not the answer anymore. I am happy for the people who right now are struggling with the disease, as they may have better support for recovery and continued treatment. I am heartbroken though when I think about the millions we have lost to suicide or overdose all because nobody believed they actually were giving it all they had..

So raise your glasses of sprite up and lets toast to real support for those in the middle of that trial right now. Families and friends, this is not about looking back at what could have been or blaming you. – but it is about what can be… so love on those struggling right now- lets take it up to the next level-

OK?

You Really Think Your Efforts Make Any Real Difference? Get A Grip.

Gene Kelly was told he couldn’t dance for most of his first auditions. 

Walt Disney was told he just did not have the imagination needed to make it in advertising.

After a performance at the Grand Ole Opry,  Elvis Presley was told he’d be better off to go to Memphis and become a truck driver.

Albert Einstein didn’t  speak until he was 4 did not read until he was 7. Eventually came around.

Lucille Ball was  considered a b -actress and it was recommended she become a secretary.

Jerry Seinfeld was fired after a small part in the sitcom Benson.He was so bad they didn’t notify him but when he showed up for his next read through he wasn’t included in the script, then figured it out.

Abraham Lincoln started several businesses that were total failures.He ran many times for office and failed before becoming president

 Marilyn Monroe was urged to consider another career in modeling or acting as she didn’t seem to have the talent

Steve Jobs was fired from his own company.

Hopefully you’re catching the drift here. Trailblazers and leaders rarely get support from their peers -especially from insecure ones. If you are planning on making a difference in whatever your passion is you better get a grip. 

If you plan on actually pressing through the negativity,  the doubt and  haters you better hold on tight and get a grip on what it is you plan on doing just like the above people did and hundreds and hundreds of others have done. 

If you have followed me for any length of time or you can just read my homepage and  know some of the passion I have for certain issues.

Ive  spent a couple decades working in and living through some of these things and have a pretty good understanding of what’s wrong in our system.

 Just the other day as I was presenting an idea to  a colleague I was caught off-guard when I was asked the following question.

 “What are you trying to do to change the world?”

At that moment I froze- and knew I was at a crossroads.

I had to make a decision. Did I really believe what I was saying- that I could actually do this and make a difference or would I take the easy way out and fall back into sheeple position and be a follower?

So after careful thought I said “yes I do think I will change the world” I didn’t know it at the time but question was really  important for me. I needed to know if I really believed in what I was doing.

 Do you really believe you can make a change- do you have a grip?
