The foundation of the Pivotal Plays campaign is all about showcasing the often-unsung heroes who have performed amazing things that may have been overlooked.
Much like athletes whose actions are vitally important to the outcome of a game – though aren’t getting the recognition they deserve -- Pivotal Plays are all about finding stories of achievement, progress and the things that define our every day.
Whether it is something that occurs in the community, on the playing field in sports, in business or in government, the Pivotal Plays program is about giving credit where credit is due. We want to recognize the individuals, groups, teams and organizations that perform those achievements and bring them to light.
Erik Ayers, Co-Founder of the Pivotal Plays Campaign, discusses why uncovering and recognizing these Pivotal Plays is paramount to the campaign itself.
In 2005, Tom Deierlein, CEO of Thundercat, was a U.S. Army Major serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. During this time, he undertook a philanthropic effort in Iraq where organized donations of vitamins and other supplies to the poorest in Sadr City, Iraq.
While on duty, Tom was shot by a sniper, which made it difficult to hand out donations to the children as he recovered. Though his friends and extended network established a foundation to keep the donations going, which ultimately raised more than $120,000.
Check out this full podcast with Mr. Deierlein.

Given the events in Virginia this week, it goes without saying, "Violence is as American as Apple Pie".
By no means, any attempt to be dismissive or insensitive, in light of the shootings of two reporters, this statement, made long ago, conjures images of what modern-day print and electronic media allows us to experience, almost first hand.
Clearly, things have spiraled out of control.
As expected, the left focuses solely on gun control, but if we are to take the position that is shared by many 2nd-Amendment supporters, "... people kill people".
So, this begs the question, "what's lurking in the hearts of minds of men"?
Then of course, there's still the "Trump Factor" and its pivotal role in both GOP and Democrat politics.
In fact, speaking of illegal immigration, we witnessed a Univision reporter, having to be escorted out of the room where Trump was holding a press conference, in a rant about citizenship "rights" for illegal immigrant children - OK, he didn't phrase it quite like that.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Western music is not to be confused with Country music. Western music is a form of American folk music composed by and about the people who settled and worked throughout the Western United States and Western Canada. The Mexican folk music of the American Southwest also influenced the development of this genre. With the Traditional Western being a genre of various arts, such as comics, fiction, film, games, radio, television and music, getting "westerns" published and in the hands of fans can also be confusing and a challenge to understand. Tonight we learn about today's contemporary western music and about how today's publishing experts get the western genre to market.
