I Kept Living On Purpose!


Hello World,

I love to share what's going on and ways we can participate, collaborate, volunteer, donate, you get it. I'm living and sharing on purpose! -And so... I kept living to write again.

Saturday, September 10th is World Suicide Prevention day. I first learned of this important day back in 2011. A man near my job was thinking about jumping from the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center. Click here to read that archive. Please also click here for helping and understanding the suicidal person (Even if this is you right now) from the American Association of Suicidology (AAS)


Since writing that post years ago I've become passionate about this world health issue. I've also become a participant in Cycling the Globe for Suicide Prevention. It's an initiative 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. You can cycle at home, in the gym or outdoors. This activity is all about the global community spreading awareness of the importance of suicide prevention. This year's theme for World Suicide Prevention Day is Connect. Communicate. Care.' Join me in this initiative.

One day while looking through citylimits.org I found an ad about an event by TWLOHA TO Write Love On Her Arms. It's an inspiring organization that creatively educates on suicide prevention by founder Jamie Tworkowski . He was helping a friend in order to write love on her arms and now helps so many more across the world.

Join their campaign with the hastag #ikeptliving. You can even donate for treatment and recovery on their site.

Participate in your own way this year. If you're in New York this weekend I invite you to join me Saturday, September 10th to cycle the globe by way of Brooklyn! Click here to register and for more information.

Together Everyone Achieves More. We’re a TEAM encouraging our fellow community members, family and friends to live and contribute to our livelihoods. Your act today can help someone decide to live tomorrow.

Together we’ll make a difference in our world."Never Doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has."-Margaret Mead

Let Us Teach As We March On!

I recently attended a black history celebration in which a woman on the program was singing Lift Every Voice and Sing. This song is the Black National Anthem. As an African American raised in a predominate black church I'd sing it with congregants during service, as an alum of an HBCU (Historically Black College) we'd sing the anthem at special events and as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) which adopted it as the official song, I'm both humbled and proud to stand up in reverence of my ancestry. The lyrics request for a people to give high praise in continued faith and remembrance to past and present legacies of resilience. Be sure to view the words and related links below.
Yet at this event I was the only one standing. It was a teachable moment as I quickly nudged my eldest daughter to stand with me. I could hear someone whisper, ‘should we be standing?’ I didn’t turn around. I figured someone would tell them or they’d ju…

Putting CommUnity Ideas To Work!

Hello World! -Thank God For the Weekend!

Over the past three years I've worked to promote education, mentorship, emergency preparation and faith based initiatives in communities undergoing development. While serving to get the word out about services and supporting non-profit organizations and agencies, I've come across many amazing people and events in which many community members may not be aware.

I intend to highlight some of the entities in which I've engaged in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, East New York, Brooklyn, Far Rockaway, Queens, South Jamaica, Queens, Brownsville, Brooklyn, East Harlem, South Bronx, North Shore, Staten Island and more! I believe these are all areas to keep an eye on for old and new services which assist the community in addition to events which enrich the lives of friends and neighbors alike.

If you live in these areas and would like me to promote, host or cover your next community event ...Email your Beloved Community Ambassador Today! Blessmela…

Day On Dreams!

Happy Blessed 2018! I'm elated that new year celebrations are followed by national commemorative events and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Starting this weekend there will be many opportunities to lend a helping hand in our communities across the United States of America. This is a Day On to Serve! The Corporation for National and Community Service expects to engage nearly 1 million people in thousands of service projects in all 50 states. On this day, federal, state, and local
leaders will join citizens in honoring Dr. King's legacy through service projects addressing pressing
community needs.


In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day as the first and only federal holiday observed as a national day of
service, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this national
effort. Americans may visit MLKDay.gov to find a service project for MLK Day or a year-round volunteer
opportunity in their own community. If you have not already …
