Author Rosemarie Kaupp to be Featured on Close Up Radio

WARRINGTON, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When a loved one is taken away very suddenly, life is broken in a way that can never be repaired.

When a parent is faced with the unbearable tragedy of losing a child, nothing can fill that void or heal that wound.

But even if you experience tragedy, it is possible to move forward. It’s possible to have a productive life again. Your life will never be the same but it can be a good life.

Rosemarie Kaupp lost her son Chris when he was only 23 years old. Six weeks later, her husband passed away. All this had been preceded by her cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Rosemarie Kaupp could have chosen to let the experience destroy her. Instead, she carried on.

She began writing to help memorialize Chris’s life and preserve her connection to him. As she wrote, Chris’s memory served as her muse. It helped her grieve, but also move forward.

“The death of a child punctuates your life. There is a clear before and after,” says Rosemarie. “For me, it’s been 20 years. The pain is not as intense as it once was. You learn to live with it. I try to communicate that with my blog. The sorrow is always there, but it doesn't have to overwhelm you. The spirits come to you. You’re not alone.”

Her blog also discusses coping techniques to handle emotions and go on with daily living.

Today, Rosemarie is the author of The Amberella Tales, a series of early chapter books for children ages 5 to 9 years old in kindergarten thru fourth grade. Perhaps more importantly, she keeps a blog to share her thoughts and feelings for other bereaved parents.

“I know what these parents are going through and if there's any way, a small way, that I can help them, I feel duty bound to do it,” says Rosemarie. “Your loved ones want you to continue to live. Even after they've passed, they want good things for you in life. They miss you just like you miss them, but they still want you to be here.”

“Our memories are so important and the only way to preserve them is to really like talk about them and visualize them and talk about them with other people. So it becomes even more vivid and clear. Those memories can be the wind in your sails.”

Close Up Radio will feature Rosemarie Kaupp in an interview with Jim Masters on February 4th at 12pm EST

Leah Marie of The Mind Health Coach to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WESTPORT, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The sixth leading cause of death is Alzheimer's Disease, and today, one out of every five people over the age of 65 is diagnosed with the disease. It’s terrible condition that affects not only the person, but their family and caregivers as well.

Leah Marie is The Mind Health Coach, specializing in holistic stress management for families affected by the challenges of dementia. For over a decade, Leah has worked with families struggling with dementia and Alzheimer's to employ strategies that assist them in gaining a sense of peace.

“When I was very young, my grandfather showed early signs of dementia. He progressed to Alzheimer's disease and it was very traumatic for my family to watch him slip away,” recalls Leah. “I saw a huge need for people to understand that their wellness is not just their physical body but also brain health.”

Communicating with loved ones who suffer from dementia can be extremely stressful and isolating. In fact, studies show one in five caregivers will pass before their loved one with Alzheimer's because of the stress.

Leah says it’s about accepting where they are and appreciating what they have left.

“It's shocking when these types of behaviors happen, but it's because they're stressed and they don't know how to communicate effectively anymore,” Leah explains. “Their brains are not working correctly; it’s feeding them wrong information. It is so important that families understand that their loved one hasn't changed as a person and that they just aren't able to utilize their judgement center as effectively anymore because of the disease process.”

Leah was inspired on this path following a near-death experience.

“I had to look for other means to recover from my experience,” recalls Leah. “That's when I started meditating. Then I learned emotional freedom technique. Essential oils are great. Yoga is just amazing. The self-care that happens with Ayurveda is so powerful.”

“I want to make sure that I fulfill the reason why I was brought back. Helping others in any way that I can is really important to me so I'm fully stepping into the role of really helping people before they get Alzheimer's and dementia. I think it's a matter of lowering stress, looking at diet, lifestyle, and being proactive about not only their overall physical health, but their brain health as well.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Leah Marie in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 4th at 1pm EST and with Jim Masters on February 11th at 1pm EST

OSWEGO, IL, USA, January 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Internet marketing firm Weblinx, Inc. has announced the launch of a new website for the newly named Southside Center of Hope, formally St. Martin de Porres House of Hope in Chicago.

"The company exceeded our expectations with their high level of customer service and attention to detail. We are very pleased with the site and look forward to having an on-going relationship with Weblinx."

Drugs are not cool. You’re going to have to make a lot of big decisions. You have the opportunity to take control of your life.”

— NFL Hall-of-Famer Marshall Faulk

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On January 30, 2020, NFL Hall-of-Famer and Foundation for a Drug-Free World national spokesperson Marshall Faulk joined Miamian and former NFL safety Nick Ferguson to unveil a two-story mural at Miami Jackson Senior High, the school where Ferguson got his start in the sport.

Renowned Miami muralist and firefighter Julian Reams wants to give the youth of his city a better future. According to a new study from researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 8.6 percent of black male students in Miami-Dade County have used heroin at least once.

“My purpose is to inspire the youth to stay focused, stay the course and not be distracted,” said Reams, 32. “The Message is say ‘no’ to drugs, because they are a deadly distraction. If our youth can focus on establishing a stable foundation for a bright future, the world is theirs.”

Reams’ mural—featuring a member of the Jackson High Giants team running with the ball and the words “drug-free world”—was a collaboration between Reams, Foundation for a Drug-Free World, and NFL alums Marshall Faulk and Nick Ferguson.

For five years, Foundation for a Drug-Free World, which supports the world’s largest nongovernmental drug education program, the Truth About Drugs, has brought volunteers from across the country to the Super Bowl to distribute hundreds of thousands of educational booklets sharing the truth about drugs—straight facts that inspire youth to come to their own decision to live their lives drug-free. The team is in the process of distributing 750,000 The Truth About Drugs booklets to contribute to a safe and drug-free Super Bowl.

The truth about drugs is a message—and reality—that Marshall Faulk wants students and parents to come to grips with as early as possible.

“Understand this,” said Faulk, who delivered a presentation to some 1,600 students gathered in Miami's Jackson Senior High gymnasium before the unveiling, “every person you see in your neighborhood that’s on drugs—at some point, they were your age, and they made a decision. It was not the right decision. We want you to know there’s an option out there to be drug-free.”

“As you watch videos,” he continued, “you see the celebrities, you see the hip-hop—they make drugs look cool. It’s not cool once you’re addicted. It’s not cool when you’re homeless. Drugs are not cool. You’re going to have to make a lot of big decisions. You have the opportunity to take control of your life.”

Former Denver Broncos safety Nick Ferguson also spoke at his alma mater: “A kid came up to me afterward and told me he understood what I said because he too found himself in situations where family members and friends were trying to pull him down with drugs.”

“These kids grew up in the same environment that I grew up in. I love my area and I love my school and I’ve always wanted to come back and bring something that was needed, so to do it as a professional athlete, at Super Bowl weekend, in my city, was awesome, it was impactful, it was emotional and it was really big for me.”

Ferguson spoke to a student athlete who approached him after the unveiling. Gesturing to a ladder at the side of the school, he said: “This ladder symbolizes everyone’s climb to get better in life. Imagine trying to climb up that ladder with someone grabbing at your pants, trying to pull you down. That’s what life is like on drugs. It’s already hard to get up the ladder anyway, and if you do drugs, you can’t get up at all.”

Julieta Santagostino, director of the Florida chapter of Foundation for a Drug-Free World, echoed Ferguson’s sentiment. “Down here in South Florida, I see how heavily drugs weigh on the area, especially with kids—how young they are when they start. It’s so common, so normalized. That’s why it’s so important for people like Marshall and Nick to be voices and models for living drug-free.”

Maxwell Sweeney’s Must-Read Books for Anyone Interested in Military Subjects

Maxwell Sweeney of Mansfield

MANSFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Active service members might not strike you as bibliophiles or avid readers, but in fact many military men and women can trace their interest in serving their country back to an influential book they stumbled across as a child or teenager. And, truth be told, during the long, hot, dusty days of a desert deployment, there are only so many games of pool one can play according to Maxwell Sweeney. So plenty of enlisted men are prone to picking up a book just to pass the time. And unlike a pool cue, it’s easy to tuck a paperback into your pocket or toss it into a duffel bag — pretty important considerations for a community of people who are accustomed to traveling light, as well as being shipped out with only a moment’s notice.

Military aficionado Maxwell Sweeney credits his lifelong interest in tactical operations and combat philosophy in part to his childhood reading habits. As he learned more about military tactics and weaponry, his reading list grew; that, in turn, helped him to gain a well-rounded and in-depth perspective on what it means to fight for one’s principles and country.

Now, Maxwell Sweeney is sharing his list of essential military-themed reads with you. So grab a cup of coffee while you check out his suggestions, then get ready to hit up your local library — or your Amazon account!

The Art of War by Sun Tzu

It’s hard to imagine that a text dating back to the 5th century BC could remain relevant today, in the era of global positioning systems, surface-to-air missiles, advanced chemical warfare, and bona fide rocket science. But that’s exactly the feat that The Art of War, one of the best-known tomes on the topic of war, has achieved.

The teachings of Sun Tzu, widely considered as one of history’s foremost strategic thinkers, were first introduced to America’s reading public in 1910, when the first English translation was published. Since that time, The Art of War has gone on to influence not only countless individual military leaders and their troops, including service members just like Maxwell Sweeney, but also politicians and business pundits — essentially, anyone who is interested in the psychology behind management, motivation, conflict, and critical thinking.

The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli

The next book on Maxwell Sweeney’s military must-reads is another centuries-old work, The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli. This book dates back to at least 1535 and gave birth to the moniker “Machiavellian” to describe someone who is conniving, scheming, and unscrupulous. That’s an extension of the idea that military leaders, politicians, or really anyone who is in, or who wants to be in a position of power, can justifiably take any action, no matter how immoral, in his pursuit of certain goals.

Few modern-day leaders or public figures would admit to using “the ends justify the means” as a credo or motto to live by. Nevertheless, The Prince, much like The Art of War, is an invaluable book for those who wish to understand the philosophical reasoning behind mankind’s motives, especially when it comes to large-scale economic or political gains.

The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy

Fast-forward to 1984, the tail end of the Cold War — a decades-long conflict between the U.S. and the Soviet Union that was characterized by the constant, imminent threat of nuclear war. Writer Tom Clancy, who would go on to publish dozens of thrillers and non-fiction titles, including the popular Jack Ryan series, could not have timed the publication of this novel better. The early 80s were marked by tension between the two superpowers, and The Hunt for Red October tapped into that zeitgeist. It didn’t hurt that then-president Ronald Reagan endorsed Clancy’s work by talking about how much he enjoyed the book.

The Hunt for Red October is a remarkable behind-the-scenes peek at the technological aspects of military life, espionage, and warfare. It was so rich in detail and rang so true to readers, that many assumed Clancy had somehow acquired access to top-secret military documents, or at the very least was fictionalizing a true story. Not only were those assumptions false, but Clancy — whose name is today synonymous with military thrillers — never even served in the military himself. Like Maxwell Sweeney, he was just a true patriot and a military buff.

In Miami for the Super Bowl to Steer Kids Straight About Drugs

The number 1 booked school presenter in America, DeLeon is using the momentum of the Super Bowl to steer kids to a drug-free life.

Prevention is the key to ending the opioid crisis says Steered Straight CEO Michael DeLeon.

This generation is the most beautiful and most important generation we’ve ever had. Their voice is most vital to our future.”

— Steered Straight Founder and CEO Michael DeLeon

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — After his seminar at Miami Coral Park High School on January 28, Steered Straight Founder and CEO Michael DeLeon described the kids there as “absolutely incredible young adults” saying they “truly inspired me today. This generation is the most beautiful and most important generation we’ve ever had. Their voice is most vital to our future.”

DeLeon knows his drug prevention message is a matter of life or death. The CDC reports there were 47,600 overdose deaths in 2017, and while there are some bright spots, like a 5.1 percent decline in overdose deaths last year for the first time since 1990, it is still an extremely urgent issue.

A recovered addict, ex-offender and former gang member, DeLeon is an outspoken voice for drug education. He is in Miami this week, in partnership with Foundation for a Drug-Free World, for the Foundation’s annual Truth About Drugs Super Bowl campaign.

“Prevention is the key,” says DeLeon. “We must educate this generation to find their purpose and find their voice.” He is brutally honest when it comes to talking to youth about the extreme dangers of drugs, gang involvement and associated criminal activity.

To accomplish his mission, DeLeon uses the Truth About Drugs campaign and materials of Foundation for a Drug-Free World.

In an episode of Voices for Humanity on the Scientology Network, DeLeon described how his partnership with Drug-Free World began. One day, he googled “Drugs are a lie” and a video popped up.

“I watched it, and man, I could almost cry telling you about it right now,” and he said, “This is it!” The video was one of the Foundation’s drug education public service announcements. “So I went to Drug-Free World and I looked at their website and their setup and their materials.” He realized, “all I gotta do is start getting this stuff into the hands of these kids!”

On a mission to educate the youth to stay on the right path when it comes to serious life issues, especially drugs, DeLeon is the #1 booked school presenter on drugs in the country.
