Rush Limbaugh discussed the passing of his co-worker and friend Chris Carson. I want to share, not exploit, my thoughts on his condition.
I also want to talk about why there is so much ignorance surrounding disease states. There is so much diagnostic overload but a huge lack of understanding . The science, studies and treatment recommendations not only support but are consistent in their results.
I enjoy conservative talk shows b/c I believe in certain principles, unfortunately it is knowledge, not just principles that are requied, Grant it, principles and virtues may allow for the knowing, but at some point you have to "get it". Hopefully, America will get it soon as the clock is ticking.

Have you ever sustained a brain injury have you ever known anyone who had a concussion? These days there is a lot of talk in the media about domestic violence, football players and Post Concussion Syndrome, PCS. However, the general public doesn’t really understand how serious a seemingly minor concussion can be. One of the main reasons we’re tackling this topic this evening is that even a seemingly minor concussion can have life-long, life altering consequences. And that is the topic of tonight's discussion. The plan is to learn from one another and to educate one another about TBI and its aftermath. We know personally just how a traumatic even a concussion can be. Please call in (424) 243-9540 and tell us a little about yourself, your TBI; how it happen and how things are going at this time and we'll put our heads together and offer the benefit of our experiences and hopefully in all of that we'll find solutions that work for you. Tonight's format is "Brainstorm."

Service learning and civic engagement is an integral part of a Bryant University education. Bryant's mission is to develop its students into well-rounded, socially conscious leaders who will use their experiences and understanding to create a culture of community involvement and corporate responsibility at any future workplace and community.
Bryant University students Julia Leffray, Gabriela Martin, Tara Walker, Aneesh Mysore, Terrill Toe and Scout Benson are required to take a course called Management 200 as part of their curriculum of studies. In this course, students are members of a team that partners with local nonprofit agencies and applies management skills to semester-long projects that include fundraising, operations management, event planning, and program development.
Enter Paul Roselli, past Voice of Leadership guest; filmmaker and executive producer of These Three Words, a film about hope, love, and life; a film about 5 individuals with brain cancer.
Julia, Gabriela, Tara, Aneesh, Terrill and Scout were drawn to Paul's passion about this subject and applied to partner with him as their project. Paul chose them, hands down out of three separate groups that applied to work with him.
Our story is about how changing the perception about brain cancer has become a legacy program for these students; one that they hope will sustain itself even after they've graduated.
Brighter Skies is the name of their project.

I HAD A DREAM
M.L.K. is the master of advocacy a advocacy that changes hearts and minds knowing it takes generations of advocacy and hard work he began a journey that was not popular in the minds of those who stood to lose the most and those they influenced. It was a fight started a hundred years before him and will be going on a hundred years after. But the king taught man to stand up for what they believe, to not accept how things are. He as well paid the ultimate price for his believes. Until Dr. King we humans did not know what it was to stand up for something greater than ourselves To stand up to change what people think and how they treat another person. We will Honor Dr. King and talk about his history as it relates to our future.
So many of us who are living in the aftermath of a brain injury understand this. And as people, our communities and society in general are largely clueless what brain injury means. Hell it takes us survivors who live with it everyday years to even begin to understand. We asking people to understand and accept something they cannot see. And in many cases something we can’t explain or cope with. And most of the time by the time we can begin to explain or understand it, there is no one left to share it with. And like most movements those who feel so deeply and step up to bring change will never see the change in people’s hearts and minds. You can have all the laws and acts and everything else but none of it means a thing until it is in people’s hearts and minds.
How do we change hearts and minds, how do we find each other. Reach out find someone don’t be alone, then together find others. Find that voice that we have in common and change the world.

Many people have an issue with anger, frustration, lack of time and are always wrapped up in their own lives to make time for others. Two worlds collide with this aspect for the brain injured: 1. Communication with others to understand what survivors go through. 2. Caregivers, friends, and loved ones need to listen with an open mind.
PATIENCE IS NEEDED TO MOVE FORWARD.
Listening skills are something most people in our lives need to improve. Strategies are there for learning how to improve these communication barriers. Individuals with brain injuries may not be noticeable to the naked eye but if a common trait by people to stop, listen and ask open ended questions; the frustation and anxiety easily subsides for caring and empathy.

Meade. Kerri is still active in the Army National Guard. She joined to provide for her family and serve her country. Kerri is a single-mom and combat Vet who is currently working on her masters in Management in Public Relations. Kerri’s mom was diagnosed with a rare type of brain tumor that was never supposed to reoccur. Unfortunately it has, in spite of some of the latest technology and treatments. Kerri’s mom is not in shape for the interview, but I felt this was such an incredible journey, that it needed to be told. Our prayers need to be with them. I had occasion to meet Kerri when I was speaking to her about a common passion of ours. It was then that I heard the story about her mom. Hopefully we can enlighten you on both. This show is a gathering place for anyone seeking recovery from the challenges of life on life's terms. I introduce topics, and survivor's share their experience, strength and hope. We discuss useful tools that have helped us lighten the load, of our journey through recovery. More will be revealed! Tune in, stop in and call in. This is a "we" recovery program, because it is in the "we," that we find the new "me." We focus on the four A's of Recovery...Awareness, Acceptance, Action and Adaptation.
