Tell us a little about yourself. I was born and raised in Guyana. And I am the second of six siblings. I emigrated to the United States of America at age 17 and attended college. After college I spent the next eleven years in the US Army, two as an enlisted soldier and nine as a commissioned officer. I completed a master of arts degree in human resources development while on active military duty. After separating from the armed services with the rank of Major and several outstanding decorations I completed a masters of divinity degree and later completed a doctor of ministry degree. I am the founder of Silence The Guns, a non profit addressing the proliferation of guns in the urban community. I am an ordained minister, a college professor, husband and father.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was impacted by adversity at age fourteen when my younger brother of two years was killed by a drunken driver. I was also impacted by the death of two children, and the loss of service-members while in the military. I was able to cope with the adversity which impacted my life by anchoring my faith in a God who cares about and loves me.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want people to realize that life does not end with adversity and that it is not what life throws at us but how we respond to what life throws at us.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My faith was deepened because through research and dedication to the project God provided me with insights that stretched my faith.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? A few of my favorite influences are my pastor, mother and General Colin Powell who was one of my mentors in the 101st Airborne Division and who played a big role in me attending Officers Candidate School from which I graduated as a Second Lieutenant. I receive inspiration from writers such as Thomas Merton, C,S. Lewis, Dr. Edward Wimberley, Howard Thurman, Simone Weil, and David Benner.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I was a track and field champion in my native Guyana and competed in track and field athletics for the US Army in Europe. I would like to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest in the near future.
