The Global Renaissance Movement is the combined energies and actions of all those who look out upon the global landscape and recognize that we as a people, as a human species, can do better, that we can be more than we are and have more than we’ve got, but only through massive positive action. This is a movement to remake the world. It is aglobal movement to promote, fight for and bring about world peace, freedom and friendship among all the worlds citizens. Taking massive positive action is necessary for the creation of the better planet all of us want and badly need. Recently one of my students, Carter, commented in class, “You know what Mr, Mr. J, the world really is a messed up place.” I agreed with him that the world is indeed a messed up place, but it doesn’t have to be. Each day that we are blessed with oxygen in our lungs and the opportunity of a new day, that is yet another chance the get it right, to have more and contribute more than the day before. For me this is my chance to be a better man today than I was yesterday, an attitude and approach to life I teach my students.
We all have our own unique role to play throughout the never-ending human story. Everyone has his or her own passions and creative abilities. Teaching kids about the positive path of business is MY role. Inspiring my own peer group to conduct acts of public service is MY role. Telling the world my truth, that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE, is MY role. What’s yours?
Acting upon my truth that everything is indeed possible, I have brought to life The Global Renaissance Movement, a means of my connecting with others who share my philosophy/ those who really mean it when they say they want to change the world. With technology and strategic partnerships such as my working with Non-Government Organization Build On, incredible goals are attainable such as the building of a primary school in Malawi and giving my students from Omaha, Nebraska the global engagementopportunities and international travel experience that they need.
The students of Malawi will get a new school and our American students will have their eyes opened to realities that they had not previously known to exist. Friendships will be forged, memories will be made, lessons will be learned, yet most importantly two groups of people, from two different hemispheres, from two different world experiences will have the fortunate opportunity to meet and befriend one another and through the shared labor of school construction, lives will be transformed and our world will be changed.
My book, The Crossover: Making Your Biggest Dreams Your Greatest Reality (Other Books and Products Coming Soon), contributes to the construction materials of the school itself. The Omaha Ambassador Trek at this moment in time is my biggest dream that I WILL see become a great reality. This reality is the beginning of The Global Renaissance Movement, the connection for the first time of people who already are making a different in their own communities, those who always wanted to change the world but never knew how, and those who are newly awakened to the realities of our world both good and bad and now possess a sudden desire for participation in a way that will actually matter. For the first time these groups of people can join together, learn about one another, support each other and see the results of their efforts. I invite you to join us. JOIN THE MOVEMENT!

at: http://igg.me/at/changeagent Many hands make light work and in order for me to bring to life the strategic visions and dreams that have found their way into my heart I’m going to need the help of a lot of people. This is a movement to change the world and this movement needs funds to make that happen. I’m asking all those who see this vision as I see it, who support global engagement initiatives such as this, who see as I see the life transformation that will occur for the young students participating to bless me with a contribution of ONE DOLLAR. More always helps and is always welcome but ONE DOLLAR really is just spare change and what I know about grass roots efforts is thatSPARE CHANGE WILL MAKE CHANGE. I’m using all means available to get the money to I need so that I might breathe life into my destiny and offer the world to a handful of young people who would otherwise may never come to know it. I’m using crowd funding with the belief that the crowd of people I need offering ONE DOLLAR contributions will show up. This is my call into the universe for the assistance I need so that I may cross the finish line on this endeavor and move beyond.
— Invite me onto your Blogtalkradio program (or help me get greater exposure by whatever means available to you).
At this moment in time this is my biggest dream that I WILL see become a great reality. This reality is the beginning of The Global Renaissance Movement. I invite you to join this movement and help us to remake the world. With your help we will show the world that one need not be a billionaire philanthropist to build a school in a foreign nation or to impact the the planet in ways that may echo throughout time long after we’re gone.
