Cary and Gretchen will be hosting…we encourage folks to call in and share their feelings…See ya there!
If you don’t like FEMA…call in…ask some questions or share your anger…Call in and lets crawl into the controversy…necessary or not…open discussion is a catharsis…let’s get ‘er done!
Author Cary Black wrote an epoch novel of American heroism called Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’. The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States. It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos. The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.
The book tells these peoples stories in a way that makes the reader realize how far reaching the depth of this tragedy was...Never to be forgotten
The Left’s bullying freak-out over Indiana’s RFRA betrays a compulsive need to feel morally superior to others; Should the government compel the "right" kinds of expression? Yes! It! Should!; Watergate is looking like a third-rate burglary these days, isn't it?; Barack Obama's Iran "deal" in translation; Obama’s stories haven’t held up before. How is the Iran deal any different?; and Obama shows the fallacy of eschewing military force even as a last resort.
The entire premise of our show is based upon where all are now after the train wreck of Katrina...10 years ago. Many have experienced the miracles of destiny....bringing them to new spaces not even imagined before the storm. Lives have changed...Circumstances have changed and, in the end, we are faced with a different world to which we may have gained comfort within...only to be torn asunder by the game-changer: Hurricane Katrina!
Life hits us with circumstances that sometimes seem insurmountable. When a catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina, comes and inserts herself into the very essence of our being responding to such is naturally traumatic and devastating. However, in the end, at least from my experience, all things happen for a reason....and the divinity that has created us as human beings allows us opportunities for growth through such times.
This radio blog show has always been mostly about the good stuff that has changed human lives as a result of the storm. Tonight, we will talk about how calamity in our lives can transform us to heights that, perhaps, we never would have imagined otherwise.
Lura Lisa, a spiritual leader for Unity Association of Churches will join us this evening to give her perspective on the storm as well as to provide inspirational guidance to those folks who have suffered turmoil, PTSD, or other negatives associated with the storm.
This show will be inspirational to all who have experienced the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.....whether for better and/or worse. Or frankly the upsets that ocurr in human lives...It doesn't have to be a storm...We all have things that happen outside of ourselves that impact us...Let look at this wit open eyes and open hearts...
Wishing all well...and bidding you Namaste in your lives...
Smedley Butler was a United States Marine Corps major general, the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history. During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. Butler is well known for having later become an outspoken critic of U.S. wars and their consequences, as well as exposing the Business Plot, a purported plan to overthrow the U.S. government.
By the end of his career, Butler had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to receive the Medal of Honor twice, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.
In 1933, he became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to other Fascist regimes at that time. The individuals involved all denied the existence of a plot and the media ridiculed the allegations. A final report by a special House of Representatives Committee confirmed some of Butler's testimony.
In 1935, Butler wrote a book entitled War Is a Racket, where he described and criticized the workings of the United States in its foreign actions and wars, such as those he was a part of, including the American corporations and other imperialist motivations behind them. After retiring from service, he became a popular activist, speaking at meetings organized by veterans, pacifists, and church groups in the 1930s.
The novel is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite dealing with the serious issues of reap and racial inequality. The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as amoral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity for lawyers. One critic explains the novel's impact by writing, "In the twentieth century, To Kill A Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of recial heroism" (Wikipedia.org)
Here is a trailer from the movie To Kill A Mockingbird Trailer

Tonight Bonnie welcomes back author Cary Black, author of “Katrina—A Freight Train Screamin’,” and his lovely wife, Gretchen Schott, who is a musical performer and writer. This year marks the 10 year anniversary of Huricane Katrina, one of the worst hurricanes to ever hit Louisianna destroying lives and homes forever.
Katrina—A Freight Train Screamin’ is a most inspirational book to honor those people who rescued others during Hurricane Katrina's destruction ten years ago in some of our Southern states--especially Louisiana. Since Cary was last with us, he met his beautiful wife Gretchen which ironically was through the writing of the book. Cary and Gretchen have become a team not only in marriage, but also in writing, music, and hosting their own radio show. Gretchen and her family were victims of the Hurricane, and tonight we'll hear about the heroism and strength of the people through this crisis.
Cary and Gretchen have co-authored a children's book about Katrina titled French Quarter Tori and the Red Owl that we will discuss,
This week on Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After, We are honored and pleased to have Bonnie Kaye come on the show as a host to interview Gretchen and I. Bonnie was the original patron of the Heroes of Katrina show we did several years ago. Without her support, wisdom, advise, and encouragement, the show would likely have never been, nor would be, now.
Cary met Bonnie through her efforts to support literally hundreds of independent authors who faced significant losses in revenue due to the fraudulant practices of Airleaf Publishing. Over the years she has become a close friend to both Cary and Gretchen.
We are excited to have Bonnie on as a host...this show brings us back around to where we started in 2010. So please join us Wednesday evening for a show where Cary and Gretchen give their "Then and Now" account and discuss new and upcoming projects with Bonnie Kaye.

On August 2012 our nation was riveted by the excerpts of a 911 emergency call that came from an elementary school in Georgia by their schools bookkeeper. Now in the presence of an armed man, over 800 occupants in the building, having fired a round of shots and now occupying the office with "Antoinette Tuff", he was prepared to die and take others with him.
On that day the very mention of "Tuff" took on a persona of which we'd never seen nor heard before. Her name became synonymous with Courageous, Selflessness and Caring. Heroism arose from a place of rejection, pain and loss also demonstrating to us what the power of God, faith in him and what preparation of our life's experiences can do.
Join us as we welcome this extraordinary lady "Antoinette Tuff" the author of "Prepared for a Purpose" and founder of "Kids on the Move for Success". Visit our web page at the Kingdom United Ministries Network site and share it with others. You are welcome!
Host Jean Barto outlines George Armstrong Custer's assumption of command of the Michigan Brigade in late June 1863, and his heroism during the battles of Hanover and Hunterstown just outside Gettysburg.
