Dream it, achieve it, & believe it - Dream Catchers with LesPaul
I often hear people say it’s so hard to be a survivor and a Thriver which is very true and yet I feel the words survivors and Thriver are often used to lightly with little thought of their true power and meaning!
Tonight I want to call on everyone in attendance on Dream Catchers Brain Injury Radio Network Show to think long and hard about the words we use to describe ourselves and start claiming that we have power in our thoughts and words that we use that can change the way others perceive us in every way every Day be it Good or Bad but we have to believe in ourselves before other will believe in us so tonight I challenge
Everyone including myself to work even harder to break down the barrios to success and live the Dream of Inclusion for all like so many who died in the fight for Freedom and Independence in the past did for us so let’s break down the walls of injustice and raise the Flag of freedom for all people with Disabilities around the World!!!
I also want to share a lot about the ADA Leacy Tour that I was very Involved in all week long as well so I have a lot of to share.
Did you know that in a black hole in space that even light itself begins to bend? Well its true it does! Tonight I am going to be talking about doing what often seems as impossible as bending light and that is accepting and defining yourself as a unique being who happens to have a disability and just does’ let that fact bother them and that is what I want to see everyone everywhere with a disability begging to do!
Meanwhile the ADA Legacy Road to Freedom tour Bus and its Driver Tom Olin have been touring the United States for 11 Months and will finish its journey at the US Capitol and beyond. The Driver has lived on the bus for nearly a year spreading good will and hope to communities all across the USA!!!
There is power in the Independent Living Movement and strength in people who are fighting for Inclusion and access all across the USA so tonight we will talk a lot about Independence and how we can all find it on our journey together.

Love disability & Equal Rights! Dream Catchers with LesPaul
When people with disabilities fall in love our own government often gets in the way and tries to make it very hard, if not totally impossible for people just because they have a disability to fall in love, get married, and live the American dream!
Often couples with disabilities who want to get married, have to decide to shack up instead of get married, have their benefits cut, removed, or be told, it’s better for you not to get married and live together, even if it is against your own religious beliefs. This is wrong! Is time to take a stand is time for people everywhere to let freedom ring for equality for people with disabilities to live just like everyone else and fall in love and get married.

The Early Bird Midnight Special! - Dream Catcher - Les Paul
At 22 Years of age I was young and pre TBI. I was feeling very heathy and taking on the future like on like a Mad Man on a mission when an AVM in my brain that had been hiding quietly erupted like a violent Volcano in my Brain from Birth struck from deep within my Brain as fast as lightning as I Screamed for help collapsing to the cement floor of the Factory that I worked as the fire of the explosive Aneurism in my brain hit me with blunt and brutal Fury from deep within my Skull with murderous intent!
I had visons of both being a professional Moto Cross Racer and a singer song writer musician and yet there I was screaming in pain like never before fighting for my very existence. The Good News is I am still here alive and kick wiring many permeant battle scars and even though I had several more surgeries all over my brain I have lived long enough to be thankful for all the pain and even can say I feel blessed. How about you do you feel week tired and angry or do you view life through a different lens that say no matter what keep on moving and fight not only for your own Independence but as a freedom Fighter for Justus and good for all people with disabilities.
Tonight I’m calling my show the Midnight early Bird Special because in my mind I say it’s time to celebrate success and heck even failure if you dare to believe in your Dreams because failure is just another word for survivors who are inspired to go back jack and do it again and again until we find out yes indeed life is good and worth living if you only give you self a chance and fight for the future with all the gusto you can muster up!!!
We will Talk and chat tonight so be ready to share your stories and listen to some great Indi music because and life is good and well worth living here at Dream Catchers a place where people come to listen, Learn, talk, and feel like part of the community again!
People with disabilities are some of the coolest most resilient people in the World and yet I as a peer certified councilor often run into a lot of people with disabilities who are feeling week and tired or have the blues. I am going to say to that it’s time for a change of mindset and discover your opportunities to success!!!
The Empowerment Zone was created just for that purpose and to help you discover a whole World of opportunity exists out there in the realm of the Independent Living Movement and that its time to shoot for the Stars now and take life head on and begin to live it no matter what disability you may have!
Tonight’s Topics will include:
The power of Music as a recovery tool
Positive ways of developing New Skills
Empowering your own life

(Taking Bold New Steps) My Girlfriend and I are preparing to be married on July 4th 2015 as a bold move towards our own personnel Independence and Freedoms and as you might expect it Uncle Sam doesn’t like it and will apply the Marriage Penalty to us but we are in love and we refuse to allow our own Government to use the law to discriminate against marriage equality for people with disabilities so we are moving forward full steam ahead!!!
(Grass Roots)Tonight I say let’s take time to learn ways to grow and nurture our communities back to health by learning together that every single survivor who is capable is needed in this fight and now is the time to act and make big and real changes happen right now in the here and now or not somewhere in the distant future because none of us have the time to sit around and wait until we die for something good to happen because it never will unless we just do it now!!!

Tonight we will be speaking The effects of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) on brain function are not well understood, despite patients’ frequent complaints of cognitive difficulties. We have recently validated a brief battery of tests administered by telephone to identify cognitive deficits in patients with PAH
Today is World Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension PAH Awareness Day. we have purple lips to bring awareness too the need of discover. Deficits in cognitive function are common in patients with PAH. Further study is required to determine risk factors and changes with therapy.
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rare, debilitating disease in which high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs can lead to right heart failure.
From simple beginnings—four women who met around a kitchen table in Florida in 1991—the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) has evolved into a community of over 16,000 PH patients, caregivers, family members and medical professionals. PHA's mission is to find ways to prevent and cure PH, and to provide hope to the community through support, education, research, advocacy and awareness.

What we saw was so unbelievable that it has sent me on a quest to discover just what it could have possibly been or meant.
Well my Fiancée and I went to church this Sunday and the Pastor was reading from the book of Revelation’s and that’s when it hit me hard about what I had been trying to describe about what we had seen!!! It was the part I Ezekiel’s Wheel and remembered about prophecy and his visions of the future and end time’s prophecies because he saw a Wheel in a Wheel and which very much describes better than anything else to what Megan and I saw that night right over our heads pulsing and changing at a constant pace.
The center of the object of it was larger and round and pulsing as well and outer ring that was like a cloud that was rotating from within as well as circling the object. I was absolutely stunned at what we were seeing and amazed at all things that this object which literally flew up fast upon my car as I slammed on my brakes after my Girl Friend screamed loudly at what she had just seen!
