I have always been non-violent and pacifist by nature, and kind to pets and humans alike. I am blessed with a clear mind in crisis situations, and helped out people in need when I could. From following my heart and stopping to help a stranded motorist with my AAA card, to one time following an impaired driver across state lines while reporting them to the authorities. When he hit a series of parked cars and finally came to a stop I grabbed his keys until the police arrived. It turned out that he wasn't drunk, but was a priest that had just received word of his brother's death and was in shock. I kept him from getting a hit-and-run.
I have had many different jobs in my life. Usually I stayed the longest at the ones where I was helping people in need (tow-truck driver, taxi driver, security guard, caretaker/orderly for quadriplegic businessman, et cetera.)
I have always felt a connection with people, especially seniors. They have special needs and one time, while working as a tow truck driver and elderly gentleman called for what seemed like a ridiculous reason, he couldn't get the car out of park (he wasn't putting his foot on the brake pedal to release the interlock.) After talking with him for a few minutes, I realized that the real reason that I was called there was because he had lost his wife in a car jacking while he ran into a convenience store. She was shot and died. He was basically lonely and needed someone to talk to. That was the real reason for the call. I talked with him for about an hour (I was only working on commission anyway.) He was much happier when I left. That felt good. It is nice to feel like I made a difference.
I have quit jobs when they asked me to do something that I felt was immoral or wrong (when a sales job required dishonest business practices.)
I started going to college in 2005 and everything seemed to click and fall into place. I felt a calling and focused full-time on my education.
I have helped a friend through some difficult times when his father died. I also saved his mother's life three times in one year.

Our wedding day is meant to be the most special day of our lives. Rev. Strong proved that with the sincerity and meaningfulness of the words he spoke. He was very polite throughout the whole wedding process by making sure things worked out just the way we wanted. I strongly suggest Minister Rev. Thomas Strong. My special day would have not been the same without him. Thanks for giving us memories to last a lifetime!Sent on 10/16/2009
