I have a friend going through some health problems. He asked me if God is real, and if so, could I explain God to him. What you hear on this episode is my struggle to explain my concept of the answer to his question…
Sometimes we feel awkward introducing ourselves to complete strangers, but when I saw this man sitting on the lawn in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, PA, I knew he was holding a story to be told, and I was really hoping he’d tell me all about it.
‘I AM UNBREAKABLE”
We met as strangers and left as friends and not only friends, but with a deeper understanding of each other, not only as people, but also where we come from, both intellectually, morally, and most importantly, as fellow humans.
A great conversation with a great human being!
Thank you my friend, for sharing your story with us!
Join me as I engage in a very interesting conversation with a complete stranger on the front lawn of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pa, USA, as he shares his story of enduring racism, police brutality, and problems within the judicial system.
We then move to topics like humanity, Black Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, understanding we are all individuals with dissimilar narratives and backgrounds and that’s ok, opening ones mind, and having respect for all human beings…and after all of this…we depart as friends and hopefully have a better understanding of each other.
Monday/Tuesday targeted drop day for this episode!
That ‘vortex of negativity’ I always talk about avoiding? Well somehow it got hold of me and I am currently fighting my way back, I’m not completely consumed…I’m stuck at the entrance but it’s incredibly strong and I’m giving it all I can to get out.
What happened? The world and everything bad happened to find a crack through my armor and began to seep in.
Somehow…someway…violence towards others, hatred, lawlessness….they all have found an accepting place in our society…where in my world…none of that is now or will ever be acceptable.
I’m not talking about isolated pockets. I am talking about large masses.
I think we have lost the positive message. It’s been stolen away by the savagery of that violence, hatred, and lawlessness
Normally I see it coming…the storm cloud…but I didn’t see this one…and to be honest…I am worried for us all…
Praying things get better. Yes…I’ve turned to prayer a long time ago.
Violence and hatred never solves anything.
You can beat a man into submission but that will never change what’s in his mind.

Parenthood isn’t easy. Watching these three yesterday made me think of the responsibility we as parents have to our children. Not an easy task being someone’s parent, that is, when you are fully in. It takes a ton of sacrifice, patients, understanding…it’s never ending and yet simultaneously, it is possibly the most rewarding thing I have ever done and continue to do.
This doe is drained: nutritionally caring for these two fawns has taken its toll on her, but she will rebound. As I lay here on the couch this morning staring out of the glass then back at these pics I am reminded at how blessed I am to be the father of two. A tough job, absolutely, even tougher to do it right. And then you hope and pray they become good people. I am blessed that mine are indeed good people, kind people, caring individuals, a great feeling to have as I lay here on Fathers Day and understand I have indeed been blessed with becoming a dad. Happy Parents Day, Happy Fathers Day! Have a great day!
