He who forgets the past is destined to relive it.
Harry E. Lester, PhD.

 Author,  Educator,  Leader,  Social Activist
Who I am:  
A vibrant, action man; wise in years and deeds       but still young at heart.

What I stand for:   
      individuals supporting one another, embracing personal commitment that builds stronger, healthier communities so that we all can prosper.

What I'm doing about it:   
I am a tireless teacher, mentor and life coach who participates in advancing living standards and in helping people find common ground. This site will demonstrate how I have done that and how I will continue - always looking to the horizon for ways to help others.
What can you do:   
  • Volunteer for something you care about; even small tasks make a big difference - you never know where it will lead you

  • Participate in local activities and learn what is going on around you

  • Always be educating yourself, not just in things you enjoy but also in broader perspectives

  • Embrace life and look at situations as opportunities to make a difference - then look for ways to make your ideas become reality
