In the Ghetto saving lives
"Reporting to work at 745 am, the bad guys would still be shooting each other 300 feet away from me just over the next block. Several police officers came and shook my hand a year and a half later congratulating me on my work done in the area after the stats started coming in. They said it was like there was a ‘bubble’ of protection around my area. I believe the key was when I walked across the street and shook hands with the people that lived in the area. A group effort is always better that a single effort.

"Smilingly I moved to the edge of my seat formulating a plan of defense as the man closest to me put his hand behind his back and started pulling something from there. There was no doubt in my mind, it was a gun.
I had a set of Smith and Wesson handcuffs and a PR 24 club. Having put myself in a very bad situation, here was the point of no return. I could say to them I am only a security guard and, you know, I may have took on more than I could handle (LOL, saying it mildly). In recent months the bad guys had killed a local cop who had a gun, and then killed a 'buyer' of a dime of weed for driving off with out paying for it. I also knew that if I twinked out and got out of there with just a beating, they, the bad guys, would walk past my post every day forward and laugh at me. THAT, was not going to happen.
I continued conversing with a calm smile on my face after looking the Boss, 'in the eye'. the main man gave his Lieutenant a quick look that said No. His Lieutenant’s hand went back down and it came out clean. I firmly stated to the boss who was supplying most of the cocaine for street corner sales in the North end of Fort Pierce, “What you are doing down here is None of My Business. What you are doing on that corner up the street near my women and babies, Is My Business.” Main Man stood quickly and offered his hand in friendship stating “Joe, I know exactly what you are saying, I WILL take care of this” " By the time I walked the two blocks back up the street to my post, the men were already gone from My corner.

"If that man near me had pulled his gun out, I was grasping the gun with his hand still on it, popping him in the head, aiming for the Hypothalamus, while his finger was on the trigger. Using his paralyzed body as a shield and pick the rest of them off starting with the ‘big man’ first. He knew it too. Men like him and myself have survived many past violent encounters with others. He knew. He saw I was going to kill them all, with one of their guns."
I had put myself in a position where I had no choice. I know it sounds it crazy, but they had endangered my babies and women and I had taken very personal offense to that.
Page 28 My Love interest in Europe. Leta.
Hostage negotiation with armed masked terrorists in a former family home bombed by Bill Clinton in the 1990's,
"He listened to reason and in my mind, I saw the Indian Chief in the movie Josie Wales, sitting across from Josie and saying that my words of death had honor, and therefore my words of life had honor." Negotiations ended that night with us all living and not held as hostages. I watched Leta as she had relinquished control of my own destiny to me. Beautiful in the semi darkness as she was beautiful in the light. I yearned for her but I dare not tell her. An incredible woman at 23. So intelligent, well trained, and deadly. The kind of woman I dreamed of siring warriors with.
Masked camoflauged men armed with semi-automatic weapons surrounded us that night as if it could not have accelerated my heart any faster while admiring Leta. Her strong spirit and indominable will were only exceeded by her raw sexually appealing beauty. Beauty always starts from within oneself, and she was an example of that.

Many people do not realize that Paul never met Jesus Christ before his crucifixion. Paul persecuted and killed Christians and was on his way to Damascus to round up more for the killing when he met our Risen Savior. “I am Jesus of Nazareth whom you are persecuting” (Acts 22:8). My faith was blind and accepting like Paul before recent years. Now, The Spirit is moving within me all the time if I allow myself to listen. This adventure truly began the day I saw that tag IOU GOD appear before my eyes after receiving the news that I could go on the “Grand Adventure”. That was not a co-incidence. There are no coincidences
Page 63: Love is the fulfillment of the Law.
What I have learned is, more than anything, is that my personal relationship with the Lord is all about what is between me and him. It is not about any established religion and their rules. It is about how we act toward all forms of life (do unto others as you would have them do unto you) and what is said and done in our prayer closets (seek God with all your heart), that define the relationship that we as Christians, develop with our Living Lord.
Page 65 :My Space Center background
"I will restate here that I have worked in an engineering position at Kennedy Space Center Florida. I also was an Inspector that represented NASA's interest in construction projects that were Space Shuttle related. That is where I first learned of the 1947 Roswell New Mexico crash of a ‘flying saucer’ and Alien bodies recovered"
Page 65 The argument for Aliens :
where is our nearest star? Many of the more educated will venture a guess as Alpha Centauri or the North Star. Both answers are wrong. Our nearest star is the sun. That is what a star is, A sun. Most all those twinkling lights in the sky are suns with most having planets revolving around them just as our sun does. Our sun (star) is part of the Milky Way Galaxy which has more than 600 million suns (stars) in it (most with planets around them). The possibility of life elsewhere starts becoming more of a reality as I watch their eyes and see the wonder pass over their faces when exposed to this new knowledge.
