Having come to New York alone as a teenager from a small town in Germany, she has found her own unique style. "I thrive in adversity. If people say I can't do something, I will use it as fuel to ignite my dream", she said after she won "Best Director" at the Detroit Independent Film Festival 2010 with her first feature.
Born and raised in Augsburg, Germany and then Leitershofen, a suburb with a population of only 2000, Marianne Hettinger saw the movie "An American in Paris" for the first time at age 5. This was the birth of her dream to come to USA to dance and act like Gene Kelly. it would take her 7 hours roundtrip to get to the closest dance studio by bicycle, tramway, train and subway. But that didn’t stop her.
From "American in Paris" to "German in New York", Marianne arrived as a nineteen year old alone in Manhattan with only $800 in her pocket, not knowing anybody. Soon she was accepted by the prestigious National Shakespeare Conservatory on a scholarship to study acting and directing. Simultaneously she studied dance on scholarships at the Alvin Ailey School, Steps on Broadway, the Martha Graham School and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

Tonight's guest is Daniel Kamen. Daniel is the author of the newly released novel Stagecoach Road: The Bullies Must Die. This book has a contemporary theme of bullies and revenge.
In 1973 a Wirt High School student, Benjamin Weinstein, from Miller Beach, Indiana is savagely beaten by four bullies on Stagecoach Road after the graduation party. These were the same four bullies who tormented Benny all through school.
In 1992, nineteen years after the attack, Benny is a successful chiropractor living in Hammond, Indiana. One morning while jogging, he accidentally finds out one of his attackers is leading the good life and owns a thriving auto supply store not far from Stagecoach Road. This incites Benny into a rage. At that moment he decides to hunt down his three other assailants with the plan of capturing all four of them, one at a time, and bringing each one back to Stagecoach Road so he can torture and kill them--his way. It isn’t going to be easy. To complete his mission Benny has to balance a double life, one as a cheerful chiropractor and devoted family man, and the other as a maniacal killer.

in Self Help
After yesterday's intense scrutiny of Mental Health Violence and Quality Control, we go to the flip side of the issue, with a civil rights poem and a creative description of the void too deep for psychology. I wish to emphasize however, we are looking at the exact same problem (Quality Control), just through a different filter.
A Fuss on a Bus "A Fuss on a Bus" is (currently) Chapter 23 in my book "Enough! Losing the Scarlet Letter. The end of self-imposed adult abuse."
It starts out like this:
Hey Rosa . . . The eyes of the world were upon you Way way back . . . back in nineteen and sixty two All the world wondered A nation had blundered . . . Summer stopped to stand stark still in sweltering stasis . . . Men, and even senators stood supine The foolish beguiled the wise . . . A woman took a mighty nation to its moral knees . . .
I think everyone will enjoy this poem about Rosa Parks.
4 A.M. Someplace "4 A.M. Someplace" is (currently) Chapter 8 in my book "Enough! Losing the Scarlet Letter. The end of self-imposed adult abuse."
It's the artsy touchie feelie side of the same quality control argument i tried to make yesterday in much more logical terms. It starts out like this:
The Wal-Mart fan rattles on the scratched gritty wooden floor and blows the smells of new and ancient sweat off thin unwashed sheets affixed to the rough fibered blue surface of the sleeper couch below; and troubled minds are spinning in circles balancing shaky human alliances and application of scarce resources to problems, like an overmatched general pitting starving troops on a wet frozen battlefield against a superior well fed mechanized opponent.
Building The Bridge Together
Christian faith, history is one that is inclusive; bridging the chasm between God and Humankind along with the one between all people one to another as individuals and ethnic groups. By "Building The Bridge Together" over the ethnic/cultural divide, Accord1 challenges Christians and The heterogeneous landscape of our world in a way that requires change from the rambling noise of division into the poetic melody of harmony and unity today resulting in synergy for tomorrow.
Executive Director, Kevin Robinson has been a pioneer in the area of diversity having lived it being raised in Perry Township Ohio as a young child of the first African American Family at the area and school. With all of the negative realities of pre nineteen seventies suburbia serving as a focal point in his life, Kevin chose unity over division.
Many years in the making through a long career as a professional Fire Fighter, 1985-present), bachelor degreed senior co-pastor (1993-2001), staff pastor (2004-2006), evangelist, consultant and mentor/mediator to many in the area of multicultural ministry. Kevin along with wife, Beverly have established track record of building up multi ethnic congregations.
There is an old adage that says “Christianity is not a voice in the wilderness, but a life in the world. It is not an idea in the air, but feet on the ground going God’s way.” Kevin and Beverly Robinson personify this old saying in their Christian work and attitude. Their voices are not crying out feudally in the wilderness or resonating from empty walls; instead, they touch lives in the real world. They don’t work from notions or opinions-they just do what needs to be done for those who can’t do it themselves or need a little help along the way.

According to the book description “What was it like to be a nineteen year old US Army infantryman in the highlands of Vietnam in the late 'sixties? Major Ray Gleason’s book, A Grunt Speaks: A 'Devil’s Dictionary of Vietnam Infantry Tales & Terms from Unlimited Publishing LLC, uses the terminology and concepts of the Vietnam-era infantry to explore the infantrymen’s attitudes toward their role in the war, the anti-war movement, their enemies and each other.
Gleason, a combat veteran, retired Infantry officer, college professor in literature, and ethics teacher brings a fresh, and at times humorously ironic, perspective on the experiences of young Americans in combat and their struggles to re-integrate themselves into a society that seemed at times hostile and embarrassed by what they represented.
