"This holiday season I would like to thank God for being blessed with fame as a public figure, having met or spoken to so many public figures from different countries, having caring family, friends, education, chances to travel, speak as a role model to youth, volunteer in the community, publish to independent blogs, have art exhibits, and more. I have survived many obstacles in life. Not many people my age are able to be so accomplished at a young age with many obstacles in their path. With each passing year I am able to accomplish more. Thank you to my friends and fans that support me through so much."

"If you are a good person and seek not to harm anyone or anything in your life and there is a God, then he will judge you on that and test your belief in Him. It is my understanding that a good person will not go to hell because they had good deeds but lack of faith in God as a creator and belief in His existence. They might face more trials in the afterlife before being admitted to heaven, but they will not go straight to hell with the evil people because they were good and did good."

"I am a big believer in education. Education got me there; not to believe I am better than everybody else, but to help everyone that has less than me. Education broadened my horizons literally creating the understanding of social change in the world, be it at the local, state, national, or international levels."

"So I have never been a backpacker per se, I have never lived out of a backpack but I have lived out of a suitcase. I have never stayed at a hostel but I have stayed at hotel after hotel. I have never hiked from country to country. But I have been on a coach bus for way too long. And I have done one thing that a backpacker does. I have eaten really cheap when necessary and for the majority of time I have eaten hotel breakfasts and other local restaurant foods rather than pricey meals from expensive restaurants. Because we know no matter how expensive the food, it all digests. So… I have been a loving and avid TRAVELER. I have experienced foreign languages and culture. I have gotten amazing photos. I have partied all night. I have studied all day. I have crossed items off my bucket list. I have had fun after fun. I have filled out those maps for tripadvisor and facebook maps, and other apps. I have loved being a traveler…"

When people of diverse background are determining what to do for a living they should choose to do something for a career where their culture, nationality, ethnicity, race are seen as a strength and not a weakness so that they are respected for all that they are.

"When people are not as kind to you as you are and have been to them, keep being kind, and when you can’t take it anymore, still say nothing; just put it in the back of your mind and keep being kind but do not be as willing to do things for those people anymore as you were. Just don’t mention it or you will be the person with less class."

"I actually do not want to be surrounded by the worst of human beings that think they are above the law simply because they are relied on to do the worst things for an occupation that is not anywhere near accurate of what they report on their taxes as a job title, if they pay taxes.

I am happy being surrounded by positive, like-minded people with book smarts and similar interests that also are with me in positive places and situations. My aim in life now is not to catch bad guys to make the world a better place, but to help people in creating positive global and domestic social change to make the world a better place.”

"I have met so many people in public office and celebrities that I am grateful for the opportunities and the conversations. The people I have met in public office are mentioned in my bio on many websites but that is not all of the people I have met. I am very grateful for the positive opportunities that I have gotten despite so many negative and violent occurrences in my life. There have been times in my life that were tough and I went through my darkest, most challenging hours filled with obstacles and pain. There were good people that helped each other out. Those people shall remain unnamed. They never gave up on each other. No matter what came their way, they refused to quit going through the hurdles rather than around. As difficult situations surrounded them, they continued to make the best plans for their forthcoming life.”

It has occurred in my life that sometimes men get obsessed with a woman they keep describing as beautiful even if she is not a supermodel. I have found that this can take place. Those men have dark pasts at times and at other times they just listen to rumors and wonder if they can get in a relationship with a woman that has not been in a lot of relationships. Other times, a man really believes that a woman has been in a lot of relationships and that he could be the next guy for her. The problem is that a woman decides for herself when she is going to get in a relationship and men cannot keep fighting forever nor pressure a woman to be in a relationship with each of them. They can make situations so crazy that a woman will choose none of them. That is the case in dating and marriage.

"As successful as I am, I am a product of a dysfunctional home. I have been a former federal law enforcement officer and in the past and present (and hopefully in the future) I was and am a political public figure. To others out there in a similar situation as a dysfunctional home, let nothing stand in your way to success. Remember that everything you want will be easier with a positive attitude and that it will be a reflection of your health made up of your mind, body, and soul. Your goals will be more attainable if you approach everything without anger and let your current feelings be your motivation, not your bitterness, to change your living situation."

"It is best to remove yourself from a situation that does not grow you toward what you want in life and how you want to live a life where you are surrounded by positive people that give you respect and love."

"Ever meet somebody that pretends to be so good or holier-than-thou righteous that is actually duplicitous, deceitful, and manipulative? That wants to believe they are a good person because they can justify everything they do with excuses? Then, you see them end up with somebody their equal. Yeah, they deserve each other. Case closed. Don’t look back. What wasn’t meant for you means you don’t take back leftovers. Who ever changed their mind about what they threw away in the garbage to pick it back up and keep it? Now it’s destroyed. Leave it there for somebody else. As they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Just because one person cannot be meant for you doesn’t mean there isn’t another stupid person out there they can be stupid with together."

"If you tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about and I don’t know how to handle my situation, remember I have already been where you are at currently and gotten past it as a SUCCESS story. That is why I am capable of speaking about an issue because it is in my PAST. You are still going through it whatever it is. So don’t get verbal, listen to the advice with open ears rather than letting the advice fall on deaf ears, because you might be stuck there forever, longer than you want, or when you finally get past it, have developed problems of your own in how you display your ATTITUDE to everybody around you. And believe me, you only THINK it’s a positive attitude; you actually repel people away from you with your bitterness, anger, and negativity when you think you are tough, strong, and positive. You are nothing of the sort. You can be bitter and still be strong. One does not necessarily cancel out the other. And the NEGATIVE attitude shows to everybody around you; so learn to accept free help when it is offered in the form of wise words. Sometimes you are too hurt to reach out to specific people or you have nobody to reach out too. So when a random stranger reaches out to you, take it for the positive association and connotation that is in it, accept it, then get over it as YOUR problem, and get over yourself. Nobody in this world is born with an entitlement to anything. Not even you. You are not entitled to people being kind to you. So when somebody is, recognize it, rejoice in it, and see the blessing."

"By not getting caught up in the problems of somebody else that refuses to listen to reason, you save yourself from abuse in many instances and possible victimization, however, that does not mean that you stop trying to help all people."

"There are many people in the world that cannot understand somebody approaching them kindly, in a friendly manner, out of the goodness of their heart, and saying, ‘Hey, I know you are going through something difficult and have been for a while. You are not wrong. But here’s what is wrong with what you’re saying and how you are going about saying it. Here’s how you might get in trouble. Here’s a better way to handle your situation.’ Some people are simply too bitter to understand any approach to them so their attitude determines that people leave them alone. That might not be best for that person, but it is best for those that do not need to be caught up in the problems of somebody else."
