Honorees in the five categories include Dar'shun Kendrick, Georgia State Representative, Vince Thompson, CEO, MELT Marketing, Louis Negron of the United Way of Greater Atlanta, motivational speaker Les Brown and 6 other local and national leaders who have contributed to elevating the futures of at-risk youth.

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, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip 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!

Noon Saturdays, "The Resilient Brain," host Kathy Kitts
Join us to hear Phyllis Benstein, an Image Consultant, speaker, author, and powerful force! Phyllis was an Electrical Engineer for 25 years, and after she finished up with that, she actually transitioned to becoming what had been a part of her all along, an artist. She creates with make-up, fashion, accessories, and motivational speaking related to how your image is important for the way people perceive you. Thus, it can lead to your success, or if not properly executed, stand in the way of moving forward. Our talk will cover what Phyllis' favorite projects are now, and we will actually talk about the intersection of image and the land of science. Believe it or not, this area is rich for mining! Tune in to hear more!

WHAT IF I told you that by using BRAIN POWER you could fight the effects of AGING. We all know we're at the effect of aging and gravity.
WHAT IF I told you you can protect your brain through exercise, nutrition, sleep and being mindful of your CHOICES to ensure a quality of life that eludes many.
WHAT IF I told you that exercising will stimulate your brain. As we age, if we don't exercise our bicep, they atrophy. If you don't stimulate and exercise your brain SAY HELLO TO ATROPHY.
WHAT IF I told you that if you don't use your brain, the brain shrinks. Challenge and stimulate your brain with...the experience of Theatre...writing a book...a new hobby-and the list goes on.
SLEEP, are you getting...etc.
EVERYTHING IN MODERATION...etc.

About Shannon Marie
For a flower to grow and blossom, it has to go thru a lot of dirt. It also need a lot of care and nurturing. This analogy reminds me of all the tough as well as rewarding experiences I have had in life. Your life can change in a split second. I suffered a severe traumatic brain injury on November 17, 1984 at the age of fifteen. The accident left me in a deep coma for two months. My rehabilitation was learning to walk, talk, chew, swallow, and most importantly, to SMILE! The doctor's prognosis was not good, but my true grit determination proved them all wrong. With my Mother's "Never Give Up" attitude, she instilled in me that anything is possible! Abraham Lincoln once said, "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." That has become my philosophy on life.
Synopsis of her book "Web of Betrayal".
There’s No Hiding in Cyberspace
The year is 1994, the dawn of the Internet Age, when companies from Silicon Valley to London are fighting to claim the billions to be made on the new information highway.
Peter Ellis, an aggressive investigative reporter struggling to repair his damaged reputation after being framed for rigging a story, attends the Consumer Electronics Show and learns that a skilled programmer known for cracking secure computer code has mysteriously disappeared.
Peter’s quest to find the missing programmer unwittingly pits him against a brilliant hacker and deranged killer with an agenda of his own: taking revenge on the man who ruined his life—computer industry luminary David Lockwood—who is now poised to introduce a product that will change the Internet forever.
As Peter is drawn into the deadly game of betrayal and murder, he is faced with losing everything he holds dear: his career, his one true love, even his own life. Can he find the programmer’s encoded disk—which the holds the key to the killer’s identity—before his luck runs out?
The Wrestle-Anime Hut is where we talk about wrestling and anime. Hosted by Jay "The Brain" Mann.
Joining Melissa and myself, is of course Sam Way, and latter on Deborah Berry. God, don't let me burn this night up! It get's better. Jeff Gabbard stops by LIVE! from the Downtown Milton Studio. Jeff is the Fire Chief of the Cambridge City Fire Department by 24/7, and Indiana Deputy Fire Marshall by 7 days a week. Oh, EMS, Nurse, Master Firefighter, even a drag car racer. Let's talk about Fire Safety and prevention. Jeff and both his 'staffs' did just that this past week, going into the schools and addressing citizens about 'blazing hell' - which turns into trauma for someone. We learned not to play with matches, and graduated to smoke alarms and personal fire extengushers. But, MR and MRS TBI (or Miss), do you know when to use, HOW to use, or properly checked the fighting apperatice?
Need help? Take notes. This is a fantastic opportunity to discus fire, EMT and first-respoce questions. Have any? Ever been on the other side, where you was the FIRST needing response, but was, uh, knocked out or something?
More first responce of the lawful side is expected. Milton Police Chief Josh Russell may stop by, time permitting (busy schedule that EVER changes, he has) and discuss house and home safety, neighborhood watch programs and just what to do if that weird looking goblin' hangs around your house too long during Halloween. Josh is also an emergency responder, thank you God - he's done it at my house a FEW times. My version of C.O.P.S. - Concerned, Offering Police Service. Talk to an officer, share and trade TBI concerns of living alone, confussion and efforts by both us, and them. Register.
Yep, Sting said I could, so I'm playing The Police during breaks tonight....
