Walking a Day in a Womans Moccassins

Describe your life if you were forced to spend a day in another's mind/body/spirit. Who knows...maybe that's why the Native Americans were infamous for the saying, walk a mile in another man's moccassins. Today, we explore the idea of spending a day in another's shoes (or skin). Looking beyond ourselves, we begin to look into, behind, and through our neighbor's lenses. Come with me as I walk a day in another wo-man's moccassins.

2012 was the Year of Guns Outta Control

The old adage of Guns don't kill people, People kill people...just doesn't cut it anymore. Our children were murdered within the most sacred of all public arenas --our schools. People are fed up; the President is Mad! We must have a National Discussion about Gun safety; strong and corrective action is needed now!

While preserving our 2nd Amendment rights, it is possible to support and defend, yet also preserving the life, liberty, and prosperity of all citizens. The year 2012 brought over 90,000 shootings. Most infamous were the Colorado movie theater shooting, the Trayvon Martin shooting, and of course...SANDY HOOK! My message is this: LET'S HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT GUNS!

Everything is Gonna be Alright

You heard it before...you've even spoken it:

Everything is Gonna Be Alright!

How can we be sure? Why do we speak these words when it is uncertain (at best)? Let's dig for a deeper history and meaning for this positive affirmation. Moreover, let's explore whether or not it is positive [or negative] to declare that everything is gonna be alright...

Why Do Lawyers Rule the Universe

I once thought that physicians ruled the world. Not so...it's the lawyers that are in charge. Why? Because they write, interpret, and administer the laws that govern our everyday life. Although a seemingly boring topic, this one area is one that all of us can plead ignorance...legal stuff ain't sexy. The EncouragementGuy! Podcast peels back the sheets on the ins and outs of the legal professional. And Why! you need to pay attention...

Why the Trevon Martin Shooting is Personal

The Florida shooting of Trevon Martin, by the hand of George Zimmerman, is a National Tragedy. Not only do we have a young (unarmed) man killed in a flask of a moment, we also have a cold reality that racial justice and equality in America is an unrealized dream. This is a polarizing and defining moment in which all races of American citizenship should self-examine what's really going on here.  Bottomline: 'It's [almost] OK to kill black youth in Florida if they wear a hoodie.  Listen in while I talk about how Trevon Martin's murder affects me personally.
