IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) TURNS 16 -- A NOTE OF THANKS!

 
;
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.

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
