"Choose a job you love...and you'll never work a day in your life" ~Confucius
The most important things in life...aren't things...

There hasn't been anything that I have accomplished alone in this world...and whatever has happened to me, has been a direct result of the tapestry of my life and all the weavings of individual people; the threads from one to another that created my journey. As I look back at my years, I can see from the perspective of the present moment that every aspect of my life was necessary and perfect. Each step eventually led me to a higher place, even though these steps were often obstacles or painful experiences. I am eternally thankful for Brookhaven Chairman Jesus Garcia for his supportiveness and guidance, leadership and friendship. Not only does he connect people but never expects anything in return. Not only does he help anyone that needs direction, he does so selflessly. I am thankful for the threads of life he and the other men in these pictures have provided me...to weave my tapestry. Each one of them has helped me to create my journey...each one in very special ways. Each one, interconnected because of Mr. Garcia.
In these pictures, John Rose- offered me my first "adult" job at Lighthouse Insurance when I was just 17 years old and my parents left me to the street.
Tom Kehoe- my mentor, business partner and like a father to me.
Manny Vilar- my friend and inspiration for business and life.
Jesus Garcia- there really aren't enough words.
There is no mistake that I honor these men today...on Father's Day. I am an orphan and the need for truly good men in my life is essential. Thank you to these few good men. I love you all.

I am so thankful to my longtime friend and client, Matt Silver for extending the invitation to this year's Pink Tie event where we got to speak to Hulk Hogan and hear intimate details and anecdotes about his life. It was also great to see Gerry Cooney, Cecil Fielder, Bernie Williams, Jim Leyritz and of course Constantine Maroulis.

We will be giving these paper shopping bags away in Northport over the next 2 weekends in a symbolic protest to the County Bag Tax! 37 days ago, we posted about the Suffolk County Bag Tax and the fact that the monies collected do not go to any Environmental Fund but rather the retailers get to keep the money. The response from citizens around the County has been strong in opposition to this law. Over 46,000 people have been reached by this post, with 937 likes and 370 comments! County Legislators take heed and fix this law.

I love keeping the spirits up of friends in need. Especially when their heart is breaking for the loss of their child. I've heard the despair and fear in his voice...something that seems helpless. His child is gone because her mother didn't put her first and abducted her....dispappeared to the Ukraine. Children need BOTH parents. We demand equal rights in every area of our lives but are controlled by government.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality… Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
On April 3, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929–April 4, 1968) began coordinating a series of sit-ins and nonviolent demonstrations against racial injustice in Birmingham, Alabama. On April 12, he was violently arrested on the charge of parading without a permit, per an injunction against “parading, demonstrating, boycotting, trespassing and picketing” that a local circuit judge had issued two days earlier, a week into the protests.
On the day of Dr. King’s arrest, eight male Alabama clergymen issued a public statement directed at him, titled “The Call for Unity,” following a letter penned a few months earlier under the title “An Appeal for Law and Order and Common Sense.” They accused him of being an “outsider” to the community’s cause, suggested that racial injustice in Alabama shouldn’t be his business, and claimed that the nonviolent resistance demonstrations he led were “unwise and untimely.” “We further strongly urge our own Negro community to withdraw support from these demonstrations,” they wrote. It was such a blatant example of the very injustice Dr. King had dedicated his life to eradicating — the hijacking of what should be “common sense” to all in the service of what is “common” and convenient to only those in power — that he felt compelled to respond. The following day, while still in jail, he penned a remarkable book-length open letter. (“Never before have I written a letter this long,” he marveled as he penned the final paragraphs.)
Aware of the media’s power to incite the popular imagination, King and his team began distributing mimeographed copies to the clergy of Birmingham and eventually made their way to the press. Major newspapers and magazines, including The Atlantic Monthly and The New York Post, published excerpts. The full text was eventually published as Letter from Birmingham City Jail (public library) and became not only a foundational text of the American civil rights movement in the 1960s but an enduring manifesto for social justice and the human struggle for equality in every sense of the word, in every corner of the world.
