Resilient Nations, the last component of The Resilience Trilogy.

The reality is that nations have many different “infra-structures” which are critical to their survival and success as a nation state. Some of these infrastructures may immediately come to mind: banking, politics, national security, energy, commerce, and others. While all of these are very important, a nation’s intangible moral-spiritual infrastructure undergirds all these other elements of national power and existence. This moral-spiritual infrastructure (MSI) includes critical arenas such as the strength of its families, the ethics of its boardrooms, the civility of its discourse, adherence to the rule of law, respect for lives of the unborn and the elderly, regard for the security of future generations, the education of our youth, the relevance of our faith communities, the adherence to national values and accurate historical roots, and the resilience and enterprise of our citizens—including their “will to work.” All of these intangible elements of MSI are essential to a nation’s identity and survival as an entity which is truly a benefit to its citizens and the world community.

The ultimate question: can the United States of America strengthen its MSI in the 21st Century, bouncing back from decades of moral erosion, spiritual skepticism, and alarming trend lines which counter the proposition that we are “the greatest nation on Earth?” Can we weather the current storms which threaten national survival? Can we bounce back to our former greatness, America? Are we still a Resilient Nation? 

Plantings--In Poetry, Essay and Song

Being in New Hampshire provides me with a profound sense of home and place, and, paradoxically, a growing sense of the hidden, a wealth of reflection on both joys and striving, not just for survival—although there is plenty of that—but for thriving.

Here I can feel the natural rhythmic continuo of living each season both intuitively and consciously, for all that season uniquely provides.

At the end of a season, there are some satisfactions; at the same time a relinquishing, sometimes sad, of that season must take place as the next manifests itself. We will miss some of that season’s gifts, even while we anticipate the beauties of the one coming in. And within all the richness of experience, still there is mystery.

I think of my own potential fruition. Do you think about yours? Some of my potential is actuated in written words. I think on the life-cycle of my dreams’ denials and joyous fulfillments, what I hope for now, what I fear, answers received and mysteries presented. They continue in city or country.

Consider: what steps, with God’s grace, can you continue with, starting now? And who might you companion and nurture in their walk with God?

The God-imprinted heart conceives of hope even in uprootings, in seeming failures-to-thrive, even in the face of death, and can come to perceive life events as God-directed shifts in their path

The God-heart can envision, therefore, as it were, trees not planted yet, and so plants and waters anyway.

Even without seeing or grasping yet all that is, for a season, hidden, there is love, and there is joy. May you see these things in this book. May you acknowledge those who have watered you. May you plant and water also.
Medical Malpractice--A Physician's Guide to Navigating the Mine Field of Medical Malpractice Law

Medical Malpractice—A Physician’s Guide to Navigating the Mine Field of Medical Malpractice Law is a book intended to help the health care provider better cope with the legal processes of a malpractice action.  Most books written about malpractice law have been written by practicing attorneys.  This book is written by a physician who is also a lawyer.

 

Dr. Weiman maintains a full time practice as an academic Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon.  He was also able to successfully navigate through law school and pass the Bar Exam for Tennessee.  He brings a different and integrated perspective since he has direct experience of being  sued for malpractice. He has been

deposed and has testified in court both as a defendant and a medical expert witness.  He is one of only a handful of practicing cardiothoracic surgeons who is also licensed to practice law.  Dr. Weiman still makes his living taking care of patients with diseases of the chest, but now some of his research and teaching is in the field of health care law.

 

As state legislatures and the United States Congress actively debate various aspects of malpractice reform, health care providers who have more knowledge of the system should be better able to participate in these legal debates.  This book discusses various models for malpractice reform so that physicians and others can have an idea what may be coming in the future.

 

This book is long past due.

Crisis Management Leadership in the Operating Room

li3D (17K)

by Kenneth A. Lipshy, M.D.,
F.A.C.S.

Price: $29.95
+ applicable tax, shipping& handling

Medical adverse events, patient safety concerns, disasters, and catastrophes are frequently attributed to human cognitive error or problematic system safety cultures.  While Crew Resource Management (CRM) and Medical Team Training (MTT) are steadily becoming the mainstay, the medical field lags significantly behind the aviation industry in terms of preparedness for a crisis.  Literature has proven that patient safety measures, including this training, improve overall patient care, yet Operating Room (O.R.) teams do not routinely engage in simulation training.  Crises in the O.R. are typically associated with cognitive error or system problems, but often are the results of unforeseen internal or external problems.  Crisis management leadership in the operating room must progress beyond the typical CRM and MTT exercises and accept that use of checklists work when the threat to the patient and team are fully recognized. Maladaptive behavior control and effective team leadership only occur when the principles utilized in this book are mastered.  After reading this book surgical leaders should be capable of: Recognizing how human error contributes to and perpetuates adverse events, Understanding how system deficiencies can allow a simple error to progress to a catastrophe or how the system can be prepared to mitigate a mistake, Understanding cognitive functions during normal and abnormal circumstances, and Effectively lead their team through the risk management and definitive action process. While the surgeons and other O.R. team members typically self-profess an exemplary response to any threatening event, second hand observer assessment usually reveals significant bias in the ability of team members to handle a crisis appropriately.  Dr. Kenneth Lipshy uses personal firsthand experience as well as instructions from military and first responders as to how any organization should respond to a crisis, to guide leaders toward a successful program in O.R. crisis management.

 

 

A Black and White DecisionWhy George Zimmerman Was Found Innocent Why America Must Honor The Memory of Trayvon Martin

li3D (17K)

by Larry Wolf

Price: $19.95
+ applicable tax, shipping& handling

The killing of Trayvon Martin has become a national tragedy. In addition to the unnecessary and tragic death of a young black teenager, nearly half of our country and most African Americans believe a grave injustice has occurred.

While most in the minority community are resolute in their dislike of the verdict, a majority in the legal community and most white Americans believe George Zimmerman was innocent. All Americans should be concerned that so many people of color believe this case represents injustice and is another example of how little we value the lives of African American men and boys.

America is a better place when her citizens recognize when people hurt and have suffered injustice. Trayvon Martin will remain a symbol and the question in history is this: "What lessons will be learned and what will his death inspire?" If we take a few small steps in the right direction, we can, as a nation, move closer to living up to the proposition framed by John E. E. Dalberg in 1877: "The most certain test by which we judge whether a country is free is the amount of security enjoyed by minorities."

 

 
Lincoln's Advice for America in the 21st CenturyHis Words Still Speak

by Glen Aubrey

Price: $29.95
+ applicable tax, shipping& handling

The issues facing the country dating from Lincoln’s first political speech (1838) until his death in the opening of his second term (1865) were momentous to his generation, just as the issues facing the country in the early 21st Century are immense to its generation.

 

The people of Lincoln’s day needed leadership. The people of the United States today also need leadership—not just any kind of leadership—but leadership that is anchored solidly on the fundamental principles and practices of the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence.

 

If Lincoln could give us advice on the matters that mean the most to us, what would he say?  Of course, we don’t know.  But we do know what he said on matters of grave importance of his day—about the wrong of slavery, the importance of upholding the law, and the strength of the country based on its founders and founding documents—and from these statements, utilizing his own words, we can learn much about how he would face the issues of this generation.

 

Lincoln’s Advice for America in the 21st Century—His Words Still Speak takes Lincoln’s words and uses them within present day application.  Be prepared to learn and grow from the words of the greatest president the United States has ever had.

 

 
ForgiveEspecially When It Doesn't Make Sense

by Deborah McNamer

Price: $21.95
+ applicable tax, shipping& handling

 

At one time or another, everyone experiences a life-changing event.  These events make up part of your history and will forever impact your life.

 

Your life-changing event could be when you graduated from high school or college, got married, had children, started a career or business, lost a job, divorced, or when someone you loved died.

 

Each event changes the way you survive that chapter in life and the way you view yourself and others around you.  When someone you love is taken from you through a thoughtless act, you are confronted with a vital choice: to forgive or not to forgive.  If your loss impacts your entire existence, affects every fiber of your being, the choice to forgive can mean life or death.

 

Think about who has forgiven you, whom you have forgiven, and what those acts of forgiveness did to your heart, soul, and your very existence.  We, as humans, forgive small trespasses against us every day.

 

But what about the huge events?  What if an act that needs to be forgiven and the person who perpetrated it are unthinkable?  What if someone did something so heinous to you that you would find it impossible or improbable to bestow forgiveness on them?

 

Our son, Sean, was killed by a drunk driver when he was a teenager.  This tragic event began a life-long series of choices to exercise forgiveness for the good of our family, the perpetrator, and in obedience to what we knew was the right thing to do.

 

To stagger under an ongoing burden of grief is too much to endure.  The results of the carelessness of one person who tragically took the life of our son composed the beginnings of healing and gave us opportunities to forgive events and people we never dreamed we would encounter.  This story, like the events that began it, changed our lives and the lives of many people forever.  Perhaps this story will change your life, too.

When the storms of life come, and they will come, what will our responses be? I am a student of the Bible, one who chooses to believe in God and His provision. Within His Word I find the answers to the questions about storms, how to endure them, what their purposes may be, as well as how to survive them. When I survive the storms I am better able to be prepared for the next one that comes along. Perhaps we can learn the truths about trials together so we are all better prepared for the next ones that are on the horizon, or helped if our lives are surrounded by storms now. I hope these beliefs and statements of faith and perseverance will draw you closer to the God who loves all of us deeply. Truly, that is my desire. If that hope becomes reality then ministry has gone forth, people are blessed, and the Kingdom of God has drawn nearer to us.

Resilient Warriors, the first book of The Resilience Trilogy, established a solid foundation of resilience principles and practices. Resilient Leaders moves us to the next level. How do we as leaders "set the conditions" for resilient organizations? How do we help the people and organizations we lead to recover from challenging conditions, tragic circumstances, and perplexing dilemmas? How do we enable people, teams, and entire organizations to ride out the storms of life with values intact, regain momentum, and rebound to even greater heights? How do we as leaders bounce back and help others do the same? How do leaders take care of themselves in order to stay the course?

 

Major General Bob Dees, U.S. Army, Retired is the ideal resilient leader to mentor us on this practical and inspirational journey. Whether as a husband, father, and grandfather...or during an ongoing career of over 40 years in the military, business, higher education, and non-profit outreach to troops and families...General Dees' abundant passion, perspective, and professional insights provide timely coaching in resilient life and leadership.

 

Our military, as well as every other public and private sector endeavor across the land, need resilient leadership like never before. Resilient Leaders explains how to lead selflessly and successfully over time from a platform of character and competence--the kind of leadership every organization, family and loyal subordinate desperately needs and deserves.

How High Do You Bounce? -- a relevant and frequently asked question across all marketplaces of professional endeavor, as well as the inner sanctums of our personal lives. Maybe in moments of introspection, uncertainty, or crisis; you have asked yourself "How High Do I Bounce?" Or looking into an uncertain future, perhaps you are asking "How High Will I Bounce?", anticipating the hard concrete reality of overwhelming life situations to come.  Particularly during these days of a crippled economy, persistent terror threats, terrifying natural disasters, and wars and rumors of wars; it is natural to ask such questions.  I know I certainly have.

Perhaps the marketplace where the need for "bounce" is most notable is the military. Our nation's warriors well understand the challenges to bouncing back after repeated deployments, physical or mental wounds, or betrayal on the home front. These warriors go in harm's way on our behalf; they are the "exoderm" of our country, often wounded, cut, bleeding, and dying on our behalf. As role models for warriors in every other marketplace and life endeavor, our nation's military men and women are inspiring and instructive. Military institutions (including supporting civilian contract agencies) are wrestling mightily with tragically high suicide, post traumatic stress, and mental disorder incidence rates; as well as what some would term "an unraveling of military families." All the Military Services are devoting significant resources and leadership focus towards programs and protocols that mitigate these alarming trends. They are making progress, but the challenges are daunting. For all the Services, "bouncing back" (soon to be defined as resilience) has surfaced as a highly relevant and desirable characteristic for those facing the challenges of protracted and globally pervasive conflict. Resilient Warriors will complement these efforts to assist with resilience of military personnel, leaders, and organizations. As well, Resilient Warriors makes these principles of resilience available to "warriors" in every endeavor of life.

For centuries one of the greatest debates in human history has centered on the divinity of Jesus Christ. Was He or was He not God in the flesh? The very core foundation of Christianity itself rests on the idea that in order to be saved one must believe Jesus was God. As a result, most believers view Him as God and of those who do not believe view Him with great skepticism. Lost in all of this is the fact that there really was a man who walked this earth with real feet, real hands, real emotions, real concerns, real fears, and real love. When we peer past the mystery of His divine cloak, who is the man we find? Lost in the monumental shadow of His historical grandeur is a living, breathing human being who lived humbly on this earth. Learn to connect with God in a new and dramatic way. Discover a profound and enriching perspective that comes from exploring The Human Side of Christ—Meet the Guy Behind the God.

This is the story of John and Sheryl Emra and their work at the Los Angeles Community Center.  They started the center with a basketball and a bag of candy in 1986.  They found themselves working in a gang infested neighborhood that society had abandoned. 

 

Their stories relate how John and Sheryl learned about gangs, dealt with poverty, abuse, and neglect.   They confronted a dropout rate of 50% in Junior High school and another 50% in High School.

 

Everyone makes choices everyday and everyone has core needs. John Emra shows us how meeting the core needs of kids helps them build their lives upon cornerstones of empowerment, responsibility, and freedom, and how love can turn former outcasts into Honor Roll students.

Go From the Night Journey of Thought, Meditations on Life
 

 

Poetry
Go From the Night -  Journeys of Thought, Meditations on Life
"Sun's rays enliven laughter, reliving Reason's causes / Braced, the windows of the mind respond to pervasive winds of truth coming unheeded, uninvited, and impetuously, but welcomed by an earnest seeker. / Sons and daughters in their Father's image, facing heavenward, waiting, anticipating, longing for glimpses of the beyond, chance to join a chorus of harmonies blended where bountiful, cozy, and delighted comforts are the marks and makers of homes."

     Includes 45 min. CD Music and excerpts.

Notes on a Flight Home
 

noafhw_cd3D (29K)

 

Poetic expression has a way of recasting language that we might see the familiar anew, might recognize by refining intuition what is true, and what is life.

The flight home-home to our authentic self, home to the One who has called us to full life-can be lived and noted in different ways. In Notes on a Flight Home, poetry marks seeing, living, longing, loving and being loved.
