    Another Fork in the Road: Lisabeth Mackall, Caregiver, Therapist, & Author

    in Education

    When Lisabeth Mackall opened her front door at 2:30am on January 2, 2012, it changed her life forever. She learned that her husband, Police Officer Frank Mackall, had been in a serious motor vehicle accident while on duty, and had been airlifted to a hospital. When Lisabeth opened her front door, she unknowingly entered the world of brain injury. She had to follow “Another Fork in the Road.” Lisabeth will share how she and her family picked up the remnants, pieced them together with patience, persistence, and love, and forged a new life.


     


     


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.


    But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

    SWU – Where are the “So-Called Leaders” Once the Smoke Clears?

    in Education

    The question was asked on National Television by a young adult about “where are the "so-called" leaders once the smoke clears?” To take it a step further where are the Church and local leaders? Why does the Church come out to tragic events but all you see and hear are the “so-called” leaders promoting their church or preaching but never offering a solution to solve the ongoing issues in the community? If the Church is part of the Community how come funds going to the church are used to better community by offering afterschool education or skills training? These are some of the questions the youth of today have presented. So what is your take on the issue? Should the Church be doing more if they are for the community? Why do local leaders never offer an active solution that is ongoing?


    Solutions that can work if everyone takes responsibility in doing their part.


    1. Education on being Financially Prepared - Make a plan to change your financial situation.


    2. Enhancing your mind to get out of your own growth - Thinking and seeing beyond what you only know.


    3. Stand your ground - When you see others destroying the neighborhood speak up, clean up, and rise up.


    4. Reassure your kids that are valuable and they can accomplish anything. Stop putting them and others down. Parents be accountable for what you say.(Stop the cycle of death of our kids of being "P.O.O.R." (People Overlooking Opportunity Repeatedly).


    5. Find a mentor that is doing positive and learn from their actions and words.

    Episode 278: Betrayal, leadership, loyalty, and redemption: Task Force VIOLENT

    in Military

    Loyalty goes both ways, the old saying goes. One shows loyalty up the chain, because one expects the same in the other direction.  They system, however, is built upon the timbers of the imperfect human condition. 


    What happens when you have conflicting narratives, but the system that you thought was there to serve you as you served it decides to take the counter-narrative without question? 


    Is there a point where a leader accepts that there is no loyalty above, and as a result, has to redouble his loyalty to those under him?


    The story of Task Force VIOLENT is one of inspired unit level leadership, and nightmarishly twisted priorities up the chain; of brave men caught in a modern day, real time, Kafkaesque circle.


    Following up on his 5-part series, Task Force Violent: The Unforgiven - the Tragic Betrayal of and Elite Marine Corps Commando Unit, our guest for the full hour will be MilitaryTimes journalist Andrew deGrandpre.

    in Books

    Join Latrivia Nelson and Bruce Welch as they discuss Highness, the 5th book in the Lonely Heart Series.  Call in and ask your questions, give your feedback or simply add to the conversation. 


    There is no truer cliché for Prince Michael than love is blind.


    As the world’s most beautiful man, he has given up his previous title of royal playboy and asked Duchess Thalia to marry him, but when she confesses to loving the crown more than him, he breaks up with her and causes a very public scandal.


    Prince Richard, the older brother who is forced to fix everything after his brother breaks it, thinks Michael has been spoiled too much and proposes an experiment. Go away under an assumed name and live as a commoner to get a better perspective on life and to get out of the crosshairs of public opinion.


    Picking a location proves to be tricky but the clever pair decide on the last place in the world anyone would expect a Prince of England to be… Mississippi.


    Using a fake American accent, Michael nestles into his new home determined to find peace and get his life back on track. But when the prince delivers the mail to the next door neighbor, he experiences firsthand how love at first sight feels.


    Hope Daniels, a local artist, was recently the victim a car accident. Temporarily blinded and trying to get her own life in order, she falls for the prince on their first meeting. Thinking his is just a kind neighbor, she soon discovers that he’s the man of every girl’s fantasies.


    Will love be enough to keep the prince and the artist together or will their paths in this life tear them apart?


    Read Highness (Part 1), the fifth book in national bestselling author Latrivia Nelson’s Lonely Heart series.


    P.S. No cliffhanger. This is a full book with a second part.
