My name is Joe and I am interested in sharing with others what stirs the sea of my mind. A being of love and light with a serious desire to make the world a better place. I am open for suggestion and direction as to where I may best be of service.
I am not formerly educated and actually quit school to rescue the hostages taken in Iran hostage crisis and the Marine barracks bombing in Lebanon in the late 1970′s and early 1980′s. At 17 I passed the GED test and followed my heart and one of my hero’s (Audie Murphy) path’s and joined the U.S Army.
The education after traditional schooling has been earned through millions of interactions with people of many various cultures groups and organizations as well as the day to day dealing with life. I have read and studied many things from which apple is tartest to why we still cage animals and show them at zoo’s. Religions and philosophy, psychology, politics etc.
Since my late teens, I have been across the great nation in which I live at least twenty times and have been to every state except Alaska. Being a lover of undisturbed nature I guess fate has seen to it that the last place I would visit, Alaska would be one of the most spectacular. I spent time in Germany, and have stayed in various parts of Holland, Canada, and Mexico. I also spent a few years of my youth on an island named Guam where my father was stationed during part of the war with Viet-Nam.
I have been very fortunate in life being born in the US has it’s privileges. For me money wasn’t one of them however access to books( I have read thousands of them) and people to ask questions of has enriched my life in a way that although a formal education would be nice can not match. I have planted trees with Tongan’s picked crops and planted crops with various kinds of Spanish speaking peoples from places like Nicaragua, Peru, Argentina. Worked with people from various Eastern European Nations, native American Indians the US has many different peoples. Most I have worked with were legal many however were not. The biggest lesson I have learned from all of them is that we are all very much alike in that for all of us Love is universal language and it doesn’t take words to share it.
I am as my blog is titled “I am for change “and positive change is the objective. I can and would help any cause that betters humanity, society and the environment. My hope is that through my blogs I may be so fortunate to meet others that have similar feelings that we may share ideas and come together to reach for positive growth and humanitarianism. We share the planet with many other nations and we as a global society have an obligation to all that share and will share it in the future to care for it.
“Take care of yourself first and all will fall in line” was one of my grandfathers favorite sayings his other was” love yourself otherwise why would anyone else want to? “Lets Love our world and all that live on it with our hearts and share the light of our maker the gift of love.” We will make our world a better place for all through the power of our hearts live a life of love and be the change positive share your light.
