A Prolific Manifesto...

Some people write a manifesto, and they're feared for it. Others, write a manifesto and they're revered for it; and it's not always the good type either. But me? Only two words--combined by my own making--could describe the feeling from everything best:   “PROLIFIC ALTRUISM” You could look at all of my scriptures as a manifesto, and in return I'm viewed as a symbol of possibilities.

She said, "Your Story Will Never Matter!" Boy, Was She Wrong!

Once, I had a journalism teacher who told me that “people don’t want to hear your opinion.” She continued to ramble on about how that wasn’t in journalistic ethics and that my opinion, ultimately, did not matter. She continued to grade me poorly because I showed passions for what I believed in, and refused to “see it my way.” Man, it’s a good thing that I didn’t listen to her, right?! If I’d have listened to her, or the millions of other times someone told me that my story didn’t matter, I wouldn’t be here telling you that it’s the...

My Story is my Work, My Work is my Passion–I didn’t start any of what I’m doing by chance, I was picked for this mission, but was picked before I was born and ready for it. This movement has been designed around a fire that’s been at a slow simmer for many decades. When I ...
