Native American Indians

Those four situations were magnified for me on the 2013 journey across America. The problems alzheimers disease has created was the reason for that trip. Little did I know how much I would be made aware of the other three.
I’m not a research scientist. I’m not a fund raiser. I’m not a counselor. I’m not an administrator. I’m not a public speaker. I’m not an ultra runner. I never attended college.
High school, United States Navy and then a husband and father.
I care about people. I have limited resources. I have limited knowledge.
I have posted about many diseases besides alzheimers. I have posted about suicide. I have posted about the Native American Indians. I have posted about homelessness. I care. I want to make a difference with my life. I made a promise.
I have the ability to raise awareness about things by walking around America. I’m getting better at it.
I have a lot of faith in God. I feel as though he has led me to this place, at this time. I’m not a judge of the character of others, although, at times, in the past, it kind of looks like I thought I was. That will change and I will continue on. I can now say this objectively and not feeling like I am bragging. I have made mistakes, but I have done a lot of good for folks. Anyone that would do what I am doing would be helpful.
I have had a lot of help. Some of the help, I knew about. I bet I have had a lot of help I never knew about.
Before a lot of money and/or time will be spent on a problem, the powers that be, have to know their is a problem and a solution.
I Raise Awareness. The Alzheimer’s Association is the largest non profit entity working to solve problems and help people concerning alzheimers. They are the third leading funder of research to find a cure. They have a 24/7 Helpline and over 35 years experience, as an association, compiling information and helping folks.
My job, in my opinion, is a work in progress. It’s ever changing and at this point I can honestly say I am getting better at my job.This is not about me and I need to always and I mean always, remember that.
