Can one person positively transform the world? Can one person make a difference in the lives of others? Do individuals exist in the global village we know as Planet Earth who only want the best for others, unconditionally accept others for who they are, and selflessly invest their energy, time, and wisdom to help others find their purpose in life and fulfill their destiny?
I knew such a man -- L.T. Henry, a classically trained jazz musician -- a drummer who also played piano and trumpet -- who spoke five languages -- Chinese,Russian, French, German, and Spanish -- an author, photojournalist, and sales and success motivation trainer. L.T. -- as he was affectionaltely referred to by those of us whom he allowed ...to be close to him and a member of his Inner Circle -- was my Mentor and IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) was his vision which he shared with me 20 years ago. It is a vision that I have spent the past 16 years resurrecting.
When L.T. died on 1 March 1999, I just could not allow his vision to die with him --my heart and soul knew that his vision was too important. And time has proven me right. But it is a journey that I have not embarked upon alone. Many of you throughout our global have helped me resurrect L.T. The celebration of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R)'s birthday is also the celebration of the life and legacy of L.T. It is a celebration for all of the souls throughout our global village who have helped me transform L.T.'s vision into an entity that can be seen, heard, felt, and touched. It is a celebration that is testimony to the fact that ideas and visions do not die.
