Eddie Garcia Shares His Inspiring Story on FreshStart Radio
"Despite having just lost my hands and feet, I have done amazing things since leaving the hospital. I have run marathons and 5Ks, successfully coached youth basketball and soccer, and I was named the National Youth Coach of the Years by NAYS.org. I am also a motivational speaker at schools in my home state of Nevada where I have been a school teacher and administrator. My hope is to inspire others. I always tell people,
"If I can do it, so can you".
I also visit patients at the hospital where I was being treated at." - Eddie Garcia

On this one I describe the first song after my intro on my first album, 253.
The name of the song is Round Here. The concept of the song is to give the listener a fair warning about the area, the people in the area and the activities.
It is hard core hip hop with heavy 808 bass.
After that we go into some news about police treating a double amputee the best they know how.
After that we have a little read about child rape.
It's the Wine Cellar.
This is a tough episode.
For every new job, we get 2 new immigrants. Does this make sense to anyone?
Leadership matters. Veteran Navy Seal, Scott Taylor talks about the damage done by Hillary Clinton and Obama's policies.
Why did Obama veto the Keystone XL pipeline?
Ariel Fernald stands against lies being told in #50ShadesOfGrey. Join fight #NoGreyNoWay, share the truth...Love is NEVER SEXUALLY VIOLENT!
Obama says: “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” I wonder which Founding Father was Muslim?
Veteran and triple amputee Brian Kolfage appears on FOX, 2 weeks later his VA benefits stop. Coincidence?
Truck driver fired without warning for listing Jesus as his co-driver in logbook.
Blacks are fastest-growing population joining homeschool movement. Why?
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
