Hi World,

I did it! I cycled over 7 miles as a participant in 'Cycle Around the Globe' Thursday, September 10th. It was a challenge created by the International Association for Suicide Prevention to collectively cycle the circumference of the globe, 40,075 km or 24,900 miles, and to have participants cycling on every continent. I represented for the United States by way of Brooklyn!-Check the 11th name down in pic below or click here.


We will break the silence, speak up and encourage our neighbors, family and friends to acquire mental health visits and let them know why we want to see them tomorrow! The hashtag #seeyoutomorrow was the campaign from To Write Love On Her Arms this year.

Serve Well and Never Forget!

Today we salute the first responders, volunteers, loved ones and survivors of 9/11 attacks.

Sometimes tradegies help us to see our humanity or lack thereof. We see how we made a difference and how we can improve in the future. We appreciate those who risk their lives for us each day, those that go above and beyond their call of duty. Volunteers from all walks of life that lend a helping hand, organizations that raise funds for progress and political decisions which aid in crisis.

Whether your work is in Emergency Management, International Aid, Government, Faith-Based, Local or Community Development, you are positioned to make a difference during times of crisis. You are in a position to specifically make an impact to the population and entities you serve. Never Forget that! -Do it well. Do it for God and your country. Do it for your community, family and yourself.

Be Blessed!

See you In September!

(P.S. -Thanks so much to everyone that came out to the event. It was amazing!) I met new friends pictured below, from the Czech Republic, in Saratoga Park. I can't wait to revisit Prague, eat some cheese and sausage, see castles, etc. :) -
