“Treat people as you would like them to treat you.” ~ Lost Gospel Q, Q16
I have for 45 years of my life been in many places and have had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful people from around the world. I have friends who I know this very minute who live on almost every content on this earth. I profess this to you because none of these people I know would have continued to know me if we did not treat each other with kindness, love, respect, humility, and even in some instances like brothers and sisters. Some of them I have never meet in person, and still others I have shaken their hand, looked into their eyes, watched their smile grow from our encounters. When they have asked I have been there for them, some I have helped to build a brick house where there was nothing but a pile of sticks, others I have listened to their cries as they had fallen into dark times on a personal note, I have watched one of my sisters get married, and another have her first child, all of these people are from other countries from around the world. I have been there for all of them in any manner I could, but mostly what has linked us together is this blog, Listening Faithfully. For four years I have been writing steadily building a following of awesome readers, many of you have made the most astounding comments, some have brought tears to my eyes. I read as many comments and emails as I possibly can but I am only one person, with one set of eyes and limited time which I give willingly to all of you. With all this said I truly believe that you are all here because of this one simple connection as stated by our Lord, Jesus Christ, it is in how we treat each other, and that is what everyone here has proven true to me.
“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same. If you do good only to those who do good to you, what merit is there in that? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive what reward is there in that? Even sinners lend to sinners.” ~ Lost Gospel Q, continued: Q16
There have been times when people here in Los Angeles, mostly homeless who will stand outside in the rain, cold, and heat in the fast food line at versus restaurants and will ask me for money. To them I am rich, but yet I am poor, but I always give to them what is in my pockets, mostly change and a few bills. I give because there is a true need, a true calling which God has placed in my heart. I identify with them as our economy has sank and money is almost worthless. I know how hard it is to make ends meet, and I know personally how destructive it is when others impose their will and steal money from you that was not owed to them. I know the feelings of those parents who are legally being kept from their children because our courts are ignorant and make foolish orders that just exacerbates the situation further rather than to give meaningful rulings. I hear the cries of our children who want to have a two parent home but are forced to live in a world dominated by singular thinking and endure the abuse of not being part of both their parents lives and families, (I know my daughter wants to know me because we had an awesome relationship before all the pain of all the court cases of 2009 was brought against me). It is the robbery of time I especially am so frustrated with, for it takes a special kind of person to take something from someone else that which they could never give back no matter how much they may have wanted too, thus is the theft of time. In short order I have laid out for you my personal plight and I ask for your support. “Please Help Brian” is a campaign to help me to afford the fight for my daughter who is being alienated from me. I debated with myself on whether or not to come forward and to admit that I am victim of Parental Alimentation, because I did not want you all to think of me as a person who is just posting for monetary rewards, because that is not it. I think the last four years is evident of this as I have keep every posting free of charge to you. I want to empress upon you that my need here is real, and I invite you all to check it out on a special website I have put together. On it you will see a timeline of events leading up to my request. I also invite everyone to learn more about Parental Alienation by clicking here. You can find this time line by clicking the “Please Help Brian Link”.
“Instead, love your enemies and do good, expecting nothing in return. You will have a great reward, and you will be children of your Father in heaven. He makes the sun rise on the bad and the good. He sends rain to fall on both the just and the unjust.” ~ Lost Gospel Q, continued Q16.

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” ~ Colossians 2:6-7
I also want to celebrate my friends here in the United States who when I needed help they have come through, when I needed food they feed me, when I needed love and understanding they too where there, and when I needed the small things like a car battery they bought it for me. In this they have been true miracles of God and have exercised their love in the spirit of Jesus Christ. But unfortunately within the sad situations of our Family Courts and the greed infested legal and mental health system here in Los Angeles, and I have been told by thousands of others which their courts too are just as corrupt I am one step away from being homeless, from being without the standard of living and justice I fought for while in the United States Navy, and for all people around the world. So I ask you all to reach out and stop this from happening and show the real power of God by Helping Brian Campaign defeat Parental Alienation.
