IYF Signs MOU with West Coast Cities to Address Youth Concerns

Global youth organization signs MOUs with San Gabriel, Alhambra, Compton, Gardena, Long Beach and Stanton in an effort to address youth concerns.

Through the mindset education, we teach the students how to think, have self-control, and exchange and fellowship with each other. Through this, their lives will truly change”

— Rev. Ock Soo Park

SAN GABRIEL, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The City of San Gabriel is set to solidify its ties with a global non-profit organization, International Youth Fellowship (IYF) with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) during the 2021 IYF Annual Meeting to be held on June 16, 2021. The pact will be signed by the Mayor of San Gabriel and the founder of the IYF, Rev. Dr. Ock Soo Park. The IYF had previously established similar relationships with the Cities of Alhambra, Compton, Gardena, Long Beach, and Stanton, among others.

The MOU will signal the initiation of a single-minded approach to enhancing the cities and communities across Los Angeles through realistic solutions for the challenges faced by the youth in society. The Annual Meeting will be attended by Mayors, Council Members, and other City Leaders along with IYF representatives nationwide.

Over the past year, as the pandemic raged across the globe, many youths fell into despair and hopelessness, as they were socially and emotionally isolated. Today, they are still trapped inside this reality of isolation. Community leaders are now recognizing that a genuine and sustained effort is required to help the youth emerge out of isolation and restore hope towards becoming leaders with a bright future.

Rev. Dr. Park continues to meet with Presidents, Ministers of Education, and other national leaders who want to work together with the IYF through cultivating a healthy mindset and so guide the hearts of the youth towards having hope in the future. “Through the mindset education, we teach the students how to think, have self-control, and exchange and fellowship with each other. Through this, their lives will truly change” stated Rev. Park about the programs they have instituted in schools and prisons with proven successes.

The inaugural occasion is set to be a calendar event for the City, with the objective of fostering ongoing discussions to create genuine collaboration across a broader cross-section of society.

Reincarnation Study Suggests that Edgar Allan Poe was Not the Original Author of "The Raven"

IAL Research

Ial Research

A decade-long study of reincarnation has unexpectedly uncovered the real author of the 19th-century classic poem, "The Raven."

PORTLAND, MAINE, U.S.A., June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reincarnation researcher Stephen Sakellarios, creator of the 2003 independent documentary "In Another Life: Reincarnation in America" (distributed to universities by Films Media Group/Facts On File) has recently released a paper which provides detailed, compelling evidence that Edgar Allan Poe was not the real author of the 19th-century poetic classic, "The Raven." He has proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that it was Sakellarios's earlier incarnation, hitherto obscure author Mathew Franklin Whittier, who was the real author.

After over a decade of intensive scholarly research, Mr. Sakellarios has discovered that it was Whittier who submitted "The Raven" to the newly-launched monthly literary journal, "American Review," under a pseudonym which had deep personal meaning for him, "—- Quarles." The poem, written in his preferred style, was actually a tribute to his late wife, Abby Poyen Whittier who had died of "consumption" in March of 1841.

Mathew Franklin Whittier, the younger brother of poet John Greenleaf Whittier, is revealed in Mr. Sakellarios’s study as a child prodigy who began publishing sophisticated work in a major Boston literary newspaper at age 12, in 1825. Almost all of his work during his 50-year literary career was published anonymously, under a great many pseudonyms. This was partly due to the fact that most of it was drawn from real life, with the greater portion being disguised autobiography.

According to Mr. Sakellarios's theory, Whittier would have written “The Raven” shortly after the real-life event it describes, in December of that year. He would then have privately shared the poem with Poe sometime in the first half of 1842. When Poe, as a critic for the New York "Evening Mirror" obtained an advance copy of "American Review," he saw that "The Raven" was to be featured in the February edition. Acting quickly, he convinced his own editor on the "Evening Mirror" that it was his poem, falsely claiming that he had permission to scoop "American Review." His slightly revised version was then published in the January 29, 1845 edition of the "Evening Mirror," bearing his own signature. Poe—perhaps having been dismissed for lying—left that paper soon afterwards.

Mathew Franklin Whittier refused to publicly challenge Poe's scam, partly because he was deeply involved in secret anti-slavery activities and had active connections with the Underground Railroad. However, he left posterity a number of broad hints and clues in his subsequent published works which, having uncovered and decoded, Mr. Sakellarios reveals in his paper.

"Evidence that Edgar Allan Poe Stole 'The Raven' from Mathew Franklin Whittier" can be read online through Academia.edu, or downloaded directly from the following link.

Canadians Join Together to Help Victims of Guyanese Flooding

Flood in Guyana

Donations needed to help victims of flooding in Guyana

Winston Kassim, Chair of Global Monitoring at IDRF

International Development and Relief Foundation launches multi-faith fundraising campaign to provide emergency relief in hardest hit regions of Guyana

We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support from Canadians for Guyanese people in critical need because of this terrible flooding.”

— Winston Kassim, IDRF Chair of Global Monitoring

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — People in Guyana whose homes, livelihoods and community infrastructure were destroyed by recent floods are receiving emergency aid through a campaign started by IDRF (International Development and Relief Foundation) in partnership with the Central Islamist Organization of Guyana (CIOG), and supported by a Canadian appeal involving a variety of faith groups and organizations.

Through these combined efforts, IDRF will raise more than $12 million Guyanese dollars with additional monies expected to come as mosques, Hindu organizations, and businesses continue to raise additional funds.

While most Muslims give the bulk of their donations as Zakat during Ramadan and that money would have been earmarked for other charitable causes, a number of mosques have pledged to renew their fundraising efforts this summer in support of Guyanese relief. Mosques that have donated or pledged to donate include: Malton Islamic Centre, Sunatul Jamaat of Ontario Canada, Islamic Institute of Toronto, TARIC Islamic Centre, Brampton Islamic Centre, Jamiat Ul Ansar of Brampton, Imdadul Islamic Centre, International Muslims Organization, Islamic Society of Markham, and the Islamic Foundation of Toronto. Other organizations donating or pledging include the Global Care Outreach (Vishnu Mandir).

“We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support from Canadians for Guyanese people in critical need because of this terrible flooding,” said Winston Kassim, IDRF’s Chair of Global Monitoring, and a Canadian of Guyanese heritage who is a Member of the Order of Canada. “In particular, I want to thank all the mosques who have so generously pledged to raise funds again throughout the summer. It is wonderful to see so many people of diverse backgrounds and faiths come together with a single purpose to help others who are suffering and in great need.”

Mr. Kassim and the CIOG team have been in close coordination with the President's office to ensure its humanitarian relief is meeting the most urgent needs of the affected communities and to sustain that support for an extended period. The team is already providing emergency relief across Guyana including in Barima Waini, Essequibo islands, Goed Fortuin and Canals Polder West Bank Demerara, Mahaica Mahaicony Abary, and Black Bush Polder Corentyne Berbice, which are some of the hardest hit regions.

The funds raised are being used to provide humanitarian assistance to victims of the flooding, with an emphasis on food, and the distribution to farmers of livestock such as chickens that will sustain them in future. Donations to support these efforts can be made on the IDRF website at: https://idrf.ca/project/guyana-flood-relief/. Tax receipts will be issued for donations.

Guyana has been inundated with heavy rains since May, which has caused widespread flooding. This has caused serious flooding which has submerged roads, buildings and vehicles, and adversely affected crops and livestock, creating food shortages and health issues.

“With the rainy season expected to continue through July, it is urgent to respond now while also developing the capacity to mitigate further suffering that additional flooding may cause,” said Shaykh Moeenul Hack, the Director of Education and Dawah for CIOG. “One of the most beautiful things we can do is to be kind to one another. Canadians have always generously responded to urgent relief appeals, and we are very grateful that you are responding to the one in Guyana now.”

JournalOwl® Launches 21-Day Writing Challenges

Young Women Reading the Bible

Writing enthusiasts and diary keepers follow a 21-day guided journey to overcome bad habits and create positive living patterns with JournalOwl

Many people seek out wisdom and guidance from the Bible when they are struggling with a particular emotion or difficult circumstance. ”

— Kailey Lentsch, MSW

SHERIDAN, WY, USA, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sheridan, WY – June 11, 2021

JournalOwl® recently launched a series of 21-day journaling challenges designed to help people cultivate stronger faith, courage, and calmness in their lives. Writing enthusiasts, diary keepers, and journalers from around the world can now band together to improve their perspectives on life with this free online journal. The gratitude challenge asks the journaler to write a thank you letter to someone in their life on their very first day. It is their choice whether they want to electronically send the thank you letter to the person, or keep it just for themselves. As each day progresses, journalers can keep track of their improving moods as they dive deeper and deeper into a newly formed perspective of abundance.

The calmness journal challenge takes the writing enthusiast through a video-guided breathing exercise known as the 4-7-8 technique before asking them a series of prompted questions. Each day, the writer is asked to explore a topic that relates closely to cultivating calm and peace in their lives. To keep the writer motivated over 21-days, the system is designed to send an automated SMS text or e-mail each day with the new journal prompt question to write about for the day. After 21 days of consecutive writing, the journaler is awarded a badge to proudly display on their profile.

The faith challenge is rooted in Christianity but can help people from all walks of faith. Every day, the journaler is greeted with new Bible scripture about faith. Then they are asked a question to write about for that day. A few sample questions with associated scripture that JournalOwl's Faith Challenge asks its writing enthusiasts include:

1 Timothy 4:12
”Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
Journal Prompt: How can you overcome stereotypes people may hold about young people through your good faith and actions?

Proverbs 1:8-9
“Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck.”
Journal Prompt: Write about some important advice your parents have given you that has helped in your life.

Proverbs 1:10
“My son, if sinners entice you, do not give in to them.”
Journal Prompt: Write about a time you felt pressured by your peers. How were you able to overcome temptation?

Colossians 4:6
“Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”
Journal Prompt: How do you respond to someone who asks you about your faith? How do you share the Word of God?

Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Journal Prompt: Write about your future plans and goals. How are your plans lifted up and supported by your faith?

JournalOwl's Chief Editor, Kailey Lentsch MSW, adds “Many people seek out wisdom and guidance from the Bible when they are struggling with a particular emotion or difficult circumstance. It is full of verses about comfort for the brokenhearted, encouragement for the disheartened, and peace for the anxious.” Lentsch goes onto say, “The Bible also has a lot to offer to someone in the pursuit of happiness. However, finding these verses can sometimes be difficult because the word ‘happy’ only appears in the Bible about eight times.” To help its users cultivate faith and expand their knowledge of the Bible, Kailey contributes a monthly guide with her most recent contribution about what happiness means in the Bible.

JournalOwl is completely free to diary keepers, writing enthusiasts, and journalers. People can sign-up at JournalOwl’s website, join a challenge, start writing, and begin changing their perspective on life. JournalOwl is also building a global network of coaches, therapists, and counselors who are available to help people 1:1 through secure video counseling and coaching. Journalers can also speak to faith-based counselors about a wide array of challenges they are facing in life.

About JournalOwl
JournalOwl® is refreshingly simple journaling and life coaching software for everyday people seeking a more positive perspective on life. Our online diary is the first step for many people in their mental journey. Integrated with JournalOwl TouchPoints, a schedule-free online video therapy practice add-on, counselors are equipped with all the tools necessary to keep communication private & confidential. Launched during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, our singular goal is to help people maintain a healthy perspective on life with everyday writing and coaching.

Sayed Sayedy – Konfliktberatung und Konfliktmanagement

In einem Konflikt im persönlichen Umfeld zielt mein Beratungsangebot darauf ab, eigene Anliegen und Bedürfnisse zu klären und eine Win-Win-Situation zu finden.

GERMANY, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Konfliktberatung und Konfliktmanagement: In einem Konflikt im persönlichen oder gesellschaftlichen Umfeld zielt mein Beratungsangebot darauf ab, eigene Anliegen und Bedürfnisse zu klären und Lösungsansätze für eine Win-Win-Situation zu finden.

Häufig treten Konflikte auch im Arbeitsalltag auf. Zwischen Mitarbeitern und Führungskräften oder auch innerhalb eines Teams kommt es oft zu gravierenden Auseinandersetzungen. Eskalationen verhindern das Potenzial und die Motivation der Mitarbeiter und den gesamten Arbeitsablauf. Konflikte sind stets Situationen, die nicht nur Unannehmlichkeiten bereiten, sondern ebenso Chancen zur persönlichen Weiterentwicklung in sich bergen.

In der Konfliktberatung werde ich Sie als neutraler und unparteiischer Berater in einem geschützten Rahmen unterstützen, schnelle und wirkungsvolle Strategien und Taktiken zu entwickeln. In einem Einzelgespräch analysieren wir gemeinsam den bestehenden Konflikt und erarbeiten dafür einen konstruktiven und effektiven Prozess für eine geeignete Lösung.

Sayed Sayedy: Methodik

Training, Coaching, Mediation als selbständige methodische Vorgehensweise für individuelle Konfliktlösungen.

MüNCHEN, BAYERN, GERMANY, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Was ist Training?
Der Begriff Training ist im sportlichen Kontext wohl der häufigste Begriff. Hier bedeutet er „trainieren“, „probieren“, mit dem Ziel, sich selbst zu verbessern. Er hat auch hier eine sehr ähnliche Bedeutung: Es geht um Training und Wissenstransfer. Im Gegensatz zu Coaching sind im Training Tipps und Abklärungen erlaubt, sie sind wichtig und zielgerichtet. Ziel ist es, dass ich als Trainer erworbene Kenntnisse und Kompetenzen an Sie weitergeben soll.

Was ist Coaching?
Beim Coaching handelt es sich nicht darum, Ihnen Ratschläge zu geben und Ihnen zu erklären, wie Sie Ihr Leben am besten gestalten können. Weil Sie selbst am besten beurteilen können, was für Sie richtig ist. Aber jeder kann in Situationen kommen, mit denen er nicht zufrieden ist. Und es ist oft sehr schwierig, allein einen Ausweg zu finden. Meine Aufgabe als Coach ist es daher, Sie in solchen Konstellationen aktiv dabei zu unterstützen, die richtigen Lösungen zu finden. Zu diesem Zweck arbeite ich mit Systematiken und Methoden, die individuell auf Sie zugeschnitten sind. Es ist ausdrücklich nicht meine Aufgabe als Coach, Ratschläge oder gar Handlungsempfehlungen zu geben, sondern ich unterstütze meine Klienten gerne dabei, sich in sich selbst wohl zu fühlen, ihrer eigenen Stärke zu vertrauen, wieder mehr Verbundenheit und Wertschätzung zu erfahren. Ich möchte, dass sie in der Gegenwart erfüllt und glücklich sind, so dass sie dankbar in die Vergangenheit und zuversichtlich in die Zukunft blicken können. Das ist mein Ziel im Coaching.

Was ist Mediation?
Mit Hilfe der Mediation kann ein Konflikt gezielt bearbeitet werden. Anders als beim Coaching, bei dem ich auch mit einem Konfliktbeteiligten alleine nach Lösungsoptionen suchen kann, ist es bei der Mediation wichtig, dass alle Konfliktparteien an dem Prozess teilnehmen. Als Mediator spiele ich hier eine neutrale Rolle. Das bedeutet, dass ich nicht entscheide, welche Partei Recht hat, sondern Sie auf dem Weg zu Lösungen begleite, zu denen alle Beteiligten „ja“ sagen können.

Generations Deep By Gina Birkemeier, LPC Nominated For Illumination Book Awards In Self-Help Category

Book Is Based Upon Concept That Our Stories Begin Before We Take Our First Breath

The response by readers who have read the book and claim how its message resonates with their own family experiences of trauma and dysfunction has been tremendous. ”

— Gina Birkemeier, LPC

SAINT LOUIS, MO, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Generations Deep: Unmasking Inherited Dysfunction and Trauma to Rewrite Our Stories Through Faith and Therapy (ISBN 978-1-17329545-2-6, Out Loud Publishing, 2021) by Gina Birkemeier, LPC, has been nominated for the Illumination Book Awards in the category of self-help. The Illumination Book Awards honor the best Christian books of the year. Nominated books are judged by a panel consisting of Christian educators, Christian booksellers, and Christian publishers. Award winners will be announced on January 28, 2022. Generations Deep has been widely received by both readers and critics, achieving Amazon Best Seller status upon its release.

In the powerfully written, Generations Deep, Birkemeier shares her own family’s personal story through four generations, showing how destructive behaviors of one generation are repeated by following generations; and that unless we take time and effort to repair the past this dysfunctional cycle will continue. Offering questions and theories to consider, including a questionnaire created with the help of sixty other trauma-informed therapists, it will guide readers toward their own growth where it’s possible to banish shame and find freedom—for themselves and for future generations.

“I am extremely pleased and honored to see Generations Deep nominated for the Illumination Book Awards” said Gina Birkmeier, LPC. “The response by readers who have read the book and claim how its message resonates with their own family experiences of trauma and dysfunction has been tremendous. These readers also appreciate the message of faith and therapy for healing that is central to my message in Generations Deep. The recognition by experts in the Christian publishing world as demonstrated by this nomination is a great accolade.

“The message that ‘what isn’t repaired gets repeated’ is resonating with many people. This book is about connecting dots. About showing how patterns, beliefs, behaviors, ideas, identity and styles of relating are passed down. It’s about creating awareness and understanding. It’s about learning that, while trauma impacts us at a cellular level- so does healing. I believe Generations Deep’s message of hope and healing resonates with so many and is why readers are seeking the book and why it is has earned the recognition from the publishing world that this nomination conveys.” concluded Gina Birkemeier.

Faith and therapy played important roles in Birkemeier’s personal healing. Today with nearly two decades of experience in counseling and ministry, she uses this knowledge to guide readers to do their own work and heal from the impact of inherited behaviors and beliefs. She shows that cycles can be broken, and readers can shed the chains of inherited dysfunction and trauma, to live healthier lives and pass that healthfulness on to future generations. Reading Generations Deep will leave the reader encouraged and empowered to break unhealthy cycles in their own lives.

Gina Birkemeier is a nationally-renowned licensed professional counselor, author, and speaker. Gina approaches her field with a specific purpose to help people find the freedom to be who they were created to be.

From At-Risk to Graduate: Edgewood Children’s Ranch Celebrates Seniors

Edgewood Children's Ranch Graduates

Edgewood Children’s Ranch Graduates

On May 23, two seniors overcome adversity to complete their high school education and tossed their caps in the air.

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Class of 2021 has overcome many challenges, and Edgewood Children’s Ranch seniors are no exception. For more than half a century, the non-profit organization has provided behaviorally challenged children and their families support through a Christ-centered approach to education, behavioral training, and spiritual development. On May 23, two seniors completed their high school education and tossed their caps in the air.

“The Ranch meant a lot for me and really helped change my life,” says Leon H., who graduated with honors from the Edgewood Ranch Academy last month. “Graduating at the Ranch also was important for me since I got to celebrate with people I’ve built bonds with over the past several years.”

Leon came to the Ranch when his single mom sought a safe place for him to work through anger issues and develop better communication skills. While his journey has been challenging, Leon remains focused on his goals: graduating high school and improving his relationship with his family.

“Leon has achieved both—and has grown into a determined, kind, intelligent young man who continues to grow his relationship with God and his family,” says Bruce Jordan, executive director of the program.

Another program participant, Stephane S., also graduated with honors from Edgewood Ranch Academy last month after coming to the program in middle school. At the time, he was failing all subjects and often in the principal’s office with little motivation to complete his schoolwork. With the help of Edgewood Children’s Ranch, Stephane developed a more positive outlook on life and made plans for his future.

“If the Ranch hadn’t helped me, I would not have graduated,” he says. “I’m so grateful for them taking me in time after time. I praise God for this miracle.”

Jordan agrees. “Over the past few years, Stephane has grown into a young man who understands the power of internal motivation, the importance of responsibility, and the value of developing a personal relationship with God.”

Former Edgewood Children’s Ranch participant John S. recently graduated from Apopka High School. He was a Rancher during his fourth- and fifth-grade school years, and his mom, Jennifer White, credits the program for helping John change his path and achieve his potential. John is joining the U.S. Marine Corps in September.

Edgewood Children’s Ranch is a residential program offering children who display negative social behaviors and their families hope through a Christian foundation to education, behavioral training, and spiritual development. The goal is for Ranchers to return to their homes, schools, and society as emotionally healthy young people.

Currently, housing 35 children ages 7 to 17, Edgewood Children’s Ranch has continued to change the lives of at-risk youth since it first opened its doors more than half a century ago. The program plans to expand its services to reach up to 56 children at a time.

Marilyn Marchese of Coaching Possibilities to be Featured on Close Up Radio

STROUDSBURG, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “God created each of us for a purpose, and when we find that purpose, we can live a more fulfilling abundant life where we feel like we’re making a difference, we’re happy, we’re contributing to the world. However, if we don’t have a good self-image, we don’t understand our value and worth. Our mindset becomes negative and distorted and we sabotage ourselves and never achieve the dreams and visions we’ve always wanted.”

These mindsets have been developed from years ago and we don’t even realize they are there and if we do realize it we just accept that that’s the way we are. Of course, most people are so busy with their life they don't take the time to reflect on why they haven’t attained their goals, or why things aren’t changing and so they end up settling for less.

The coaching I offer, gives women the opportunity to take time for themselves to clarify the positive image that they desire, create awareness of the negative and limiting mindsets and beliefs, and develop a strategy of how to get there. I will sometimes ask challenging questions that will encourage their awareness and growth.

Marilyn Marchese is the founder of Coaching Possibilities, where she helps women create a more positive and confident self-image and mindset so they can be free to be all God created them to be and then help others do the same.

There’s an interesting proverb from the Bible that says, as a man thinks in his heart, so he is. That tells us right there how important a good self-image is. It effects the type of choices we make, our careers and relationships we choose, our view of money, risk taking and even our health.

“People are searching for some hope they need to know that it's possible to change and possible to achieve their vision of themselves they want,” says Marilyn. It's possible to change the way you think.”

Marilyn says she has always had a desire to help people who were discouraged and feeling down about themselves.

“When I was young, I remember people coming to me and asking me for my opinion to help them solve different problems,” recalls Marilyn. “That’s been a reoccurring theme throughout my life, encouraging and supporting woman in different ways. I realized a lot of times they had either a poor or distorted image of themselves.

Marilyn received her coaching certification through ICF, the standard for all coaches in the world.

I have seen how effective coaching is firsthand when I experienced coaching for myself,” says Marilyn. “I remember being stuck for years in a career I hated and didn’t understand why I couldn’t find a career I loved. “Coaching helped me become aware of the negative limiting mindsets and beliefs I had and motivated me to change them and take steps toward my goal. “During my coaching, I felt like God was saying with a big megaphone from Heaven, there are more possibilities than you think,” says Marilyn. Coaching helped open up all those possibilities for me.”

I know I will continually be growing and evolving with new dreams and visions and that’s why I am passionate about help others do the same thing.”

One of the techniques Marilyn uses in coaching is known as “visioning.”

“Visioning is a powerful tool to motivate people to change by clarifying what is the end result they’re looking for. Then I ask them to envision themselves as if it already happened, describe the details of what your seeing, speaking, and feeling,” says Marilyn. “I'm helping my clients envision their ultimate desired outcome even if they don’t know how they’re going to get there yet.” The interesting thing is, the brain tell the difference if your actually doing the action or just imagining it.”

Coaching Possibilities is a faith-based business.

Close Up Radio will feature Marilyn Marchese in an interview with Jim Masters on June 14th at 12pm EDT

"As The Crow Flies; The Redemption of an International Drug Smuggler" Available in Jails and Libraries.

It is my hope that each person get what they need from the book. For the inmate, I hope they find hope and new direction. For the student, I hope they find guidance in choosing the right path.”

— Ed Hudson

PENSACOLA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Retired Narcotics Investigator with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and author, Ed Hudson has donated and delivered copies of his book, “AS THE CROW FLIES; The Redemption of an International Drug Smuggler,” to jails, prisons and selected libraries across Northwest Florida and South Alabama, in hopes to encourage those who need a second or third chance at redemption.

“It is my hope that each person get what they need from the book. For the inmate, I hope they find hope and new direction. For the student, I hope they find guidance in choosing the right path,” – stated Ed Hudson.

Ed Hudson recently appeared on TBN’s Huckabee Show where he shared the true story of Century, Florida resident, Freddie Wayne Crow. Crow was a former crop-duster turned international drug smuggler. He regularly flew plane loads of contraband from Central America into the Northwest Florida area. Crow was one of few who could and would fly overloaded planes under the radar, mere feet above the waves, to get bales of marijuana from Belize into the United States. Hudson along with agents with the DEA, US Customs and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement tracked Crow for many years until Hudson and other agents finally identified and arrested him. During the years that followed, Hudson and Crow formed an unlikely friendship. Hudson encouraged Crow to turn his life around and helped him walk his final steps on earth.

“AS THE CROW FLIES; The Redemption of an International Drug Smuggler” is available on Amazon, at Barnes and Nobles and other selective bookstores.
