Mission Statement

To use words to bring comfort, hope, and awareness to a broken world.

To use words to fight against injustice, tyranny, and shallow thinking that brings oppression.

To challenge the status quo to imagine a world that could be.

  1. Jason, I wonder if you’re familiar with the pastor/author of Mosaic faith community in L.A.–Erwin Rafael McManus?? Your mission statement made me think of him–I have a couple of his books, both of which I think you’d enjoy and be inspired by: THE LAST ARROW, and THE ARTISAN SOUL. There are lots of great pastor/teacher/authors in the Christian community, but McManus stands uniquely apart from the rest, in my opinion. No obligation, just sharing with you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Dear Jason, I am happy you found and followed my blog, as it may have taken longer to find your blog. I love your mission and your commitment as a warrior! You could fill a 1000 page motivational book with your inspiration! Blessings to you! Jordy

  3. I believe that should be the aim of every poet. I adopted Psalm by Henry Longfellow as my personal anthem โ€“ especially these lines (there are actually 9 stanzas) โ€ฆ.

    Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
    And our hearts, though stout and brave,
    Still, like muffled drums, are beating
    Funeral marches to the grave.

    In the worldโ€™s broad field of battle,
    In the bivouac of Life,
    Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
    Be a hero in the strife!

    Lives of great men all remind us
    We can make our lives sublime,
    And, departing, leave behind us
    Footprints on the sands of time;

    Footprints, that perhaps another,
    Sailing oโ€™er lifeโ€™s solemn main,
    A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
    Seeing, shall take heart again.
