Braynstorms was born from the mere notion that there was no one else in the media or the public venue communicating from my point of view. To that end, I began a website merely to express that perspective.
It is not intended to dictate opinion, but rather communicate the perspective of its author.
Braynstorms is a blend of interesting news stories from politics, science, and religion as well as expression of opinions, conclusions from research and study, and sometimes persuasion in the form of columns, podcasts, and video presentations.
Braynstorms was created within the spirit of Franklin’s free press.
‘Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as publick Liberty, without Freedom of Speech; which is the Right of every Man, as far as by it, he does not hurt or controul the Right of another: And this is the only Check it ought to suffer, and the only Bounds it ought to know.
‘This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Governments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of Speech always go together; and in those wretched Countries where a Man cannot call his Tongue his own, he can scarce call any Thing else his own. Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech; a Thing terrible to Publick Traytors.
– The New-England Courant, July 9, 1722
For a free society to thrive, we must have free and open communication. We must share dreams and experiences. We must be able to value each other and our sincere contributions.
Watching the Shuttle launches since the first one in 1981 from my childhood home in Deltona, inspired me to be in the Aerospace industry at an early age. With 18 years of experience in Human Space Flight, there have been many lessons in human tragedy, leadership, politics, and character. It is these experiences and others I wish to share in the spirit of open communication. Each of us have unique contributions to offer, and unique attributes that benefit humanity. The choice we have is whether to we want to contribute at all. Braynstorms is my contribution.
