SOMEONE WHO SPOKE HEBREW TOLD ME THIS WAS A HOLY PLACE.


HE DEMONSTRATED IN THE STREETS FOR

A JEWISH HOMELAND.

SAL PATRIERE HOSPITAL

WHERE MY FATHER DIED

DURING BRAIN SURGERY. AGE 39

MENDEL FAJNSZTADT MY FATHER


THE U.S.S. GENERAL BLATCHFORD. WE CAME TO AMERICA VIA BREMERHAVEN, GERMANY. ELLIS ISLAND WAS OUR DESTINATION. LADY LIBERTY NEVER LOOKED BETTER. ELLIS ISLAND WELCOMED US.  THE AMERICAN TROOPS HAD RESCUED US IN EUROPE AND NOW THE TROOP TRANSPORT WAS BRINGING US TO THE PROMISED LAND.

HE WAS IN THE POLISH CAVALRY IN 1939

WHEN THE NAZIS INVADED . POLAND WAS NOT READY WHEN WAR CAME.

WHEN MY FATHER DIED I CRAWLED UNDER THE SEWING MACHINE, HE WAS A TAILOR, AND CRIED FOR A WEEK. I MADE A PROMISE THAT MY LIFE WOULD HAVE MEANING TO HONOR THE COURAGEOUS MAN HE WAS.

I BEGAN BY MAKING MYSELF TOUGH PHYSICALLY. I SWORE THAT I WOULD NEVER BE AFRAID. I KNEW HIS SPIRIT WAS ALWAYS WITH ME.

WHEN I HAVE "THOSE EXPERIENCES" I KNOW HE IS GUIDING ME. I HAVE FACED DOWN KNIVES, PISTOLS, RIFLES,SHOTGUNS, AND EVEN THREE  MARINES. THOSE STORIES ARE FOR ANOTHER TIME.


 Mendel's resting place. I found his grave when I turned 39 Same age as when he died.. My wife's cousin is a doctor in the same hospital where my dad died. Sami , her cousin, won the Legionaire Medal for saving 50 children in Lebanon during wartime. My father passed away during a brain operation in 1950. He was a courageous man.

MY FATHER LIVED LIFE WITH COURAGE AND WITH LOVE FOR ALL.


MY UNCLE DAVID WALKER LIVED IN TEL AVIV ISRAEL. WALKER DID NOT SOUND JEWISH TO ME. A BRITISH OFFICER, DURING WORLD WAR ONE CAME TO MY GREAT GRAND MOTHER'S HOME TO REPORT THE DEATH OF HER HUSBAND IN WW1.

HE FELL IN LOVE AND MARRIED HER. THATS

WHERE SHE BECAME A WALKER . BRITISH NO LESS.

MY FATHER AND STEPFATHER WERE COURAGEOUS. MY FATHER DIED OF A BRAIN HE WAS 39 ANS. TUMOR ,OPERATION IN 1950. HE WAS IN THE POLISH CAVALRY. MY STEP-FATHER WAS ON THE GROUND AND WAS SHOT FIVE TIMES AND LIVED. I RECIEVED MY COURAGE FROM MY FATHER AND A PLACE TO STAND FROM SENATOR ROBERT F. KENNEDY.  I HAVE HAD THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCES THAT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR MOST PEOPLE TO FATHOM. JUST REMEMBER WE ARE ON A PLANET FLOATING IN SPACE. WE ARE ALL MIRACLES. NEVER SELL YOURSELF SHORT. JOE CAMPBELL SAID FOLLOW YOUR BLISS AND THAT IS WHAT I HAVE DONE ALL OF MY EXISTENCE IN THIS MAGICAL PLACE CALLED PLANET EARTH. TRY FOLLOWING YOUR BLISS AND BELIEVE THAT WE WILL ONE DAY LIVE IN PEACE.  IT IS GOING TO BE UP TO WOMEN WHO COMPRISE HALF OF THIS PLANET. THREE BILLION WOMEN WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. IT IS DEFINITELY ABOUT TIME. MOVE OVER MEN.
