    Talk with Tenney: A Conversation with Craig Lewis: Animal Companions Save Lives

    in Current Events

    From Craig Lewis: Our animal companions mean the world to us. For those of us who have struggled throughout our lives, who have been abandoned, mistreated, subjugated and disempowered, we know the damage that has impacted our psyche. I am one of these people. I know what it means to be damaged to my core. There have been many times in my life when I was unsure if I would make it the next day. There have been many times in my life that the pain I was experiencing was too much to manage and that the prospect of never hurting again was a beautiful thought to have. Even in the past three months, abject despair has, at times, consumed me. However, there was something different going on this time. I have an animal companion in my life who is depending on me to care for him. No matter how bad things became I felt a responsibility to him. His name is Max the Cat. Max the Cat is a rescue. He has experienced abandonment two times in his short life. No matter what was going on with me, I simply could not abandon him. I know the brutal pain of abandonment. Every day I spent time with him, patting him, brushing him and singing to him. He responded by smothering me with his love. He saw and heard me cry every day, sometimes uncontrollably, and he knew of my pain and suffering and he gave me his unconditional love. Without Max the Cat being in my life these past few months, I would be dead. I love Max the Cat and he has helped me stay alive and his love has helped heal me in ways that I have never experienced before.  We want to hear from listeners about your precious and loved animal companions. Many of you may have had a loving animal companion who may no longer be with you. This is an opportunity to honor and celebrate all the beauty they brought to your life. For those of us who know the life impacting love of an animal, this is a time to celebrate this love. Bark Bark. Meow Meow. Ribbit.

    KMnm/Leadership skills and qualities

    in Religion

    Seek and you shall find.  In our earlier years, we didn't have to rely on our thinking alone, especially when there waa a parent or two and an older sibling.  We were always being told what to and not to do.  One day we discovered what using our brain for what its worth, was all about.  A sibling or two under us either got our sympathy or the tests ot the times.  Nowadays, the year of the Gregorian calendar, 2015,  We are having to realiza our mistakes and pay the price, in many cases, with our lives.  So many siblings are perhaps feeling sorry that they mistreated the younger ones.  Then again, it all depends on what kind of a relationship was built. Many ones went off to war and returned wondering who they were themselves, less only the others around themm

    "Relationship Tuesday" I Have Trust Issues?

    in Family

    Everyone has uncertainty about whom to trust, how much to trust, when not to trust, and so forth at one time or another. In fact, every day we make choices about whom and how much to trust, and sometimes we are more willing to trust than at other times. That’s a good thing; a total lack of mistrust would indicate a serious psychological problem. Judgments about when and whom to trust help keep us safe and alive! 


    Where Do Trust Issues Come From?


    Often, issues with trust arise based on experiences and interactions in the early phases of life, primarily childhood. A person who did not receive adequate nurturing, affection, and acceptance or who was abuse, violated, or mistreated as a child will often find difficulty in establishing trust as an adult. Likewise, adolescent experiences of either social rejection or social rejection or acceptance may shape a person’s ability to trust those around him or her. For instance, if someone is mocked, teased, or treated by his or her peers during the teenage years, this will influence later relationships. Being betrayed or belittled by others impacts self-esteem which also plays a significant role in a person’s capacity to trust. Basically, those who experience low self-esteem will be less likely to put their trust in those around them than those who are more self-assured.

    MORNING TALK WITH THE RED HAWK...SELF-REFLECTION

    in Lifestyle

    Good morning, good morning, GOOD morning!!!  Happy FOREAL humph day!!!  Yesterday is the second time, I've thought it was Wednesday, and it was really Tuesday, what's up with that??? Anyway, today's topic is, SELF-REFLECTION. Time to take a look at who you are, and make peace with yourself, if you don't like who you are.  Making peace can be as simple as, saying to self, "I accept you for who you are, but I'm gonna need for us to make some changes".  A lot of times, who we are, or who we've become is based on how others have treated us, mistreated us, what have you.  Refuse to carry the hurt, pain and shame of what others have done to you, release it.  From today on, see yourself as the best you, you can possibly be, and make the necessary changes to feel GREAT about who you are, despite, it ALL.  None of us are perfect, and accepting who you are, right now, can help you to become the better person, that you achieve to be.  SELF-REFLECTION does not mean, to beat up on yourself. It's just examing you, taking a look inside and sorting some things out. Perhaps you need help, I'm available through my website, http://theredhawk1967.wix.com/stwrhtheshow.  Don't forget, love offerings can be sent by, http://www.paypal.com, using the email address, redhawk1967@hotmail.com. Thanks in advance for your generosity.

    in Entertainment

     Please join Ray and Devon as they deal with another controversial topic.Unfortunately in the society that we live in people that look different or act different outside of what the society stamps as normal have always been targets of persecution. Everyone of us has been victims of the socialite prepubescent weeding pool. Being placed in the boxes of those accepted (athletes, popular, and beautiful) and the social outcast (nerds, geeks, and freaks). The thing that boggles the mind is when did the ones who have been mistreated, harassed, beaten, and discriminated decide that it was ok for them to discriminate, mistreat, and harass. The recent release of the new Star Wars trailer cause a firestorm on social media when it was revealed that one of the Storm Trooper was black. There was also an incident involving a female video game writer who was threaten, sexually harassed, and sent death threats all because she wrote a article about the over sexual depiction of female game characters. YOUR SHOCKED! but why it does not end there if your a black cos-player the blatant in your face mistreatment is worse. Please join Truf Bros. Radio as we welcome special guest Cos Player Olivia M to discuss this topic. Tune in the Every Monday at 7 pm CST, we're the HOTTEST talkradio show on the internet.  Check us out at www.trufbrosradio.com and get the TRUF!
