RFK was a true humanitarian and not at all like most politicians. He was moved by things he had witnessed and sought to make a difference. He also asked others who were privileged to do the same.

*Eat like country superstar Dierks Bentley when he’s touring –

First meal a huge steak salad at 5:30 []   Eat a PB&J at 8:30 []

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
