"UFO's, Giants in the Earth and
The Coming World Age"
In this powerful visual presentation, we take a look at the startling evidence that we are being visited by UFO's today in vast numbers, and that these visitations are related to the many Earth Changes we see around us. Today, there are thousands of reports worldwide of the visitations of alien spaceships in our skies, and since 1947's their numbers have been increasing every year. Often photographed hovering over power plants and missile sites, they almost seem to be reviewing what might happen to our planet if we had a worldwide pole shift.
This powerful presentation gives us a history of the UFO involvements of the … [Continue reading...]

Friends of DeCosta Headley to Honor Humanitarians at Annual Dinner
Many philanthropists toil and make personal sacrifices—with pleasure—because of their commitment to improving the lives of others. Few realize the challenges and obstacles that some of us encounter in raising funds to support worthy causes. So, it’s always a great feeling when someone acknowledges these efforts.
I experienced such a moment a few weeks ago when I received a letter from the Friends of DeCosta Headley (FODH). The organization’s larger-than-life namesake, DeCosta Headley, wrote that he learned about my work with orphans, commitment to nurturing young leaders and other humanitarian activities – and wanted to honor me as Humanitarian of the Year at his upcoming annual gala.
After meeting with DeCosta … [Continue reading...]

It beats the sand with waves of motion
And traps the shells with gentle care
It soothes my soul with sounds like lotion
Entraps my sight with just a glare
The wind surrounds me like a shadow
Which follows me until I run
Waves its goodbyes with flocks of seagulls
And circles round just like the sun
The sky surrounds me with its calmness
As though the clouds are friends to me
I gaze to find one cloud a goddess
I blink to find a bumble bee
The sand a golden field of pebbles
Which slightly hold and dress my feet
The air is full of sounds and feathers
Which land around me in defeat
This … [Continue reading...]
