A Better Community For All (ABC4All)
Spent 13 years developing A Better Community For All (ABC4All) bringing together partnerships and synergies enabling ABC4All WorldSolutions™ as volunteers with no funding. http://abc4all.net/worldsolutions.htm
What excites you about the The Possible Futures Film Contest? What's the most provocative aspect for you?
The contest offers an opportunity to share with the world a phenomenon that is unheard of, i.e, return of total health after being plagued by 15 medical diagnoses. This rejuvenation has allowed me an opportunity to have an extended life span for which I cannot thank those who made the recovery possible. Instead, I have dedicated the rest of my life to bringing Global Humanitarian Relief (GHR) to the world for anyone alive who is receptive.
Where do you find inspiration? What (or who) gives you hope?
Inspiration for me has always been through an individualized self-realization. This began with training as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist which caused me to write "Personal Psychotherapeutic Principles" shared with prospective people considering me as becoming their therapist. The principles offered them a way of learning about the person they would become involved with in the consulting room.
How have stories shaped your life? What story does the world need to tell to shape a just and sustainable life?
Now this story has led me to apply the same principles to A Better Community For All (ABC4All) - or larger segments of society and the world at large. Thus there is a self-determination that is encouraged on the part of all volunteers who become ABC4All Mentors "from the heart." With a network of ABC4All Mentors in 112 countries to date, it is possible to continue to spread The World of A Better Community for All in a fashion that is at once realistic and dealing with the betterment of lives that are filled with suffering and deprivation.
