Visiting Chicago

Good Evening Friends, Chicago is a great city. Though the visit was short it was great to see the skyline, especially on such a sunny day. The day was spent at an advisory board meeting for a pharmaceutical company. It was an honor to be invited to share my opinion on the newest treatment for hepatitis C. The most recent drug approved for the treatment of Hepatitis C is Mavyret. The treatment is an easy eight weeks, and the dosing is particularly easy with three pills once daily. So far all the patients we had treated had done very well. We’ve not seen any failures at this point. At Love the Golden Rule Inc., We’ve now seen over 2000 patients. We had treated over 500 patients, and our cure is similar to that seen in the clinical trials. We continue to see on average, two new patients a day with Hepatitis C. The chance to cure them is so rewarding, that I look forward to going to work every day. We are grateful for all of you who have been through treatment, and especially those of you who have referred your friends to be treated. If you have any questions please contact the office at 727 – 826 – 0700. I […] readmore

Support for Those Affected by Harvey

Hello Friends, It is so difficult to watch the news stories about all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. After Katrina, I had the great opportunity to work in shelters in Montgomery Alabama and then drive to Mississippi and work in a small town for three days. So much focus was given to New Orleans that most of the small towns around were not getting any assistance. It appears that were now in the same position with most people focusing on Houston, which truly needs our prayers and donations. We need to also be praying for the people in the small town such as Beaumont and Port Arthur Texas. I encourage any of you who have anything to donate, to please consider donating to the cause. The Red Cross is a wonderful organization, and the money sent to them will be used to help survivors of this terrible catastrophe. ABC is doing a day of giving up as another opportunity for people to give. Thank you to all of those who already given, and look in your heart, remembering the Golden Rule, and think about how you would want to be treated if you are in the middle of this disaster. All of us have the opportunity to give, but more importantly […] readmore

Turning 62

Hello Friends, I turned 62 today, another milestone. I could go to the Social Security office and apply for benefits, I could go skydiving, I could go ride roller coasters, or I could go to the beach. The beach usually wins as it is a great place to spend time. It’s a great place for meditation. With all the chaos in our country, it is nice to have a space where one can meditate and refresh. We are so fortunate to be here in St. Petersburg Florida, with plentiful beaches, and beautiful landscapes. With the colorful sunsets that are offered every evening, one can get lost in thought and be creative. Take some time to go to the beach, clear your head, plan your future, or just sit and meditate. Take a day away from the media and let conversations flow with friends or family. Or better yet, make new friends. You will return refreshed, and ready to reach out to others.

Civility

Hello friends, Our Representative to Congress, Congressman Charlie Crist is doing a great thing. He is taking the message of the Golden Rule to Washington DC.  I had the chance to give him a wristband from LovetheGoldenRule.com earlier this year.  I had a chance to speak to him about the Golden Rule during the Equality Florida Gala last month. He has now made a replica of our wristband which I believe says Practice the Golden Rule. In a post from his Facebook page, there is a letter that states he’s asking for a day of civility to be held on July 12, 2017 in Washington DC. I am grateful for the chance to pass this message to him and am grateful that he has taken the time to pass the message to others. No one owns the concept of treating others the way you want to be treated yourself, but our wristbands have been circling the globe for 4 years now. I have had the opportunity to pass out wristbands in 11 states and 3 countries. It is very rewarding to see people grasp the concept of treating others the way you want to be treated yourself. I look forward to seeing how things turn out on July 12th.  “Thank You” […] readmore

Remembering the Pulse Massacre

Hello Friends, It will soon be the one year anniversary of the massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando Florida. It was June 12, 2016. It always bothers me that news agencies won’t state that over 100 people were shot in that one building alone in that horrible time that many had to survive by remaining quiet and playing dead for hours before police would storm the building. I do not believe it was an act of terrorism. Many believe that the man involved was struggling with his own sexual identity, as evidenced by him attending this nightclub on many occasions before the night he decided to take so many lives. Suppressing ones own sexual identity can lead to many different psychological consequences. This is one more reason that we need to be open and accepting of all of our brothers and sisters who were born with a sexual orientation or gender identification that doesn’t fit what some people consider normal. I attend a local church that in the past, has preached homosexuality as a sin. I met with the pastor and expressed my views of life and since I’ve been attending, I’ve not heard anything that makes me feel uncomfortable in attending his church. I would hope that all of us who […] readmore

A Great Weekend with Friends

Hello Friends I have known Patricia Fillmore for 30 years now. She is like a sister to me. She used to work at Edward White Hospital back in the 1990s. Pat became a good friend of our family.  My father was in the hospital frequently.  He  had Congestive Heart Failure and COPD. She would sit with us whenever she could, whenever my father was in the hospital. She became a very good friend to my Mother over the years. We had the opportunity to go to Fort Lauderdale this weekend and spend the whole weekend together. Pat just lost her husband 3 months ago and it was great to see her walking through the grief with such grace. She is able to tell me things I may not want to hear, and the things that I need to hear. She speaks honestly and lovingly and always knows just the right things to say to me when I am going through a difficult time. I am grateful for her support, and look forward to her as a friend of Love the Golden Rule Inc. for a long time. In reviewing what’s going on with our country, and our president, Donald Trump, it was nice to have the opportunity to share my opinion on […] readmore
