Dear Friend,

I hope you’re doing well. Welcome to my monthly newsletter.

Personal Update

My Personal Update for June is now available. If we’re not already connected on Facebook, I invite you to Like my page and also visit my website.


Since last month’s newsletter, during the month of May, I’ve posted numerous articles to the Resources for Life website. You can view them on the recent content page.

Heart Songs

This month’s Heart Songs selection “Lions” by Skip Marley. A music video version is below. Lyrics and an alternative video version are available as well as an in-depth review of the controversy behind the video. This video and the social controversy surrounding it offer an insight into how our society has become easily offended and outraged. In this case, we have an anti-establishment song that wasn’t rejected by the establishment, but it was rejected by the very people it was supposed to support and positively portray. It was rejected because it was used in a Pepsi commercial. Note: There may be advertising preceding the videos that’s outside my control — it’s determined by YouTube and the user who uploaded the videos. Click the small red ‘x’ at the top right of any ads to close them.


I want to thank the global team of volunteers, contributors, and workers “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of Resources for Life. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that Resources for Life can serve you better.
