WHERE ARE ALL THE ROLE MODELS??? In a time when the current goal of our youth is to appear on a reality show, marry a celebrity and so on; it is a great loss to have such a positive influence depart our society. In the light of our dearly d...eparted Maya Angelou, we will be discussing the lack of positive role models that exist for the children in our community. Tune in this Sunday as we discuss the diminishing state of our children's future.
Why Are Openly Gay Positive Role Models Important for Children?
Because some children, from a very early age may be aware that they are LGBT. For a child or young person growing up heterosexual there are many positive role models available. Gay people traditionally have tended to shy away from acting as role models, for fear of judgement or discrimination, despite this there are countless LGBT people world wide who act as positive role models in a variety of jobs and situations.
For any child or young person who has LGBT family, friends or may be questioning themselves, it is vital that they see their own lives reflected positively in both the school and the wider community.
Although celebrities don't ask to be role models, they are. Most of them are poor ones, but celebs are role models nonetheless. It seems that every week Beyonce and Jay Z are in the headlines for doing or not doing something. Either way, it's usually something negative.
Are Beyonce and Jay Z bad examples or is the media trying to frame them that way? With so many haters and news manufacturers in the world it's hard to tell. However, we'll break down the ways of the celebrity couple and others on tonight's show!
Also on tonight's show we'll discuss assisted suicide. Should it be legalized: why/why not?

Title: Introduction, part 1/A
Starting in Summer 2014, I am offering a series of on-line courses I designed and entitled, "How To Become a Millionaire". Listeners to my podcasts are invited to enroll and participate.
This podcast provides details on the over program which consists of completing Five Phases.
Arnulfo Hernández, Jr., is an attorney in Sacramento and co-author of a book on WW II that focuses on the men of Company E, 141st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Battalion, 36th Texas Division, 5th Army, who saw action in North Africa, Italy and Southern France. Company E was the only All-Chicano Company in the Army in WW II. The title of the book is, “The Toughest Chicano Fighting Soldiers in WW II!” A memorial in El Paso pays tribute to the Fallen Sons of El Paso of Company E, many of whom paid the ultimate price in the failed attempt to cross the Rapido River in southern Italy in January of 1944.
The company was based in El Paso, Texas, and the majority of its members were from Bowie High School from El Segundo Barrio in the Southside of El Paso, the same school from which Arnulfo graduated years later. Many of the men of company E left high school before graduating to answer the call of duty and serve in WW II. They serve with honor or were killed in action or went missing in action under honorable conditions while fighting the Nazi war machine bent on subjugating those not of the claimed human master Aryan Race. They fought as Americans against a racist Nazi enemy, although they were not always treated as Americans back home before, during and after the war. On July 25, 2014, a special graduation ceremony for the members of Company E will be held at Bowie High School in El Paso, Texas. High School Diplomas will be awarded to 4 survivors of Company E, all in their 90’s. Other “posthumous” High School Diplomas will be presented to widows and next of kin of Company E members. They are all entitled to receive their High School Diploma under Texas State Law.
