After watching this make sure you watch a before story about Rockaway Beach by "The Selby" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqNNT784PVw
As an end note: If you look from the picture of Rockaway Beach you will see that maybe this community should strongly consider moving somewhere else? Sad but true.While we can all watch the news for stories on Hurricane Sandy, its rare to get... more

On March 15, 2011, they all came together to form this group as the victims of labor trafficking.Do you know what is "Human Trafficking"? It is an example crime of modern... more
The venue still vibrates from the power of bass and echoes from the fans still linger in the air as the spotlight shines onto an empty stage. This is the one place in the world that Disney star Demi Lovato feels like she is meant to be.
“Music is what I love to do, music is my life, like it runs in my veins,” said Lovato in her documentary, “Demi Lovato: Stay Strong,” which aired on MTV on Tuesday, March 2, 2012.
With a shaky voice and tear-filled eyes, Lovato poured her heart out to a camera that recorded her every move, tear and emotion since her time in Timberline Knolls Treatment Center a year ago.
Now, she shares those moments with the public.

"CTB" is a short film about a depressed, young artist named Ashley who turns her back on her creative passions in favor for a reckless lifestyle of drugs & alcohol abuse. After growing more & more hopeless down this self destructive path, she decides to kill herself. At that moment, she changes her outward appearance from dark clothes & make up to a cheerful demeanor & bright dress and embarks on a final visit to close friends & family. What follows is an emotional realization that neglecting ones dreams (the truest part of all of us) is a form of suicide in its self.
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects. Kickstarter is powered by the unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully funded before it's time expires or no money changes hands.
What was the inspiration of the film?
I have always been known for writing, recording and performing Hip Hop music since I was in middle school. Music was my passion. As time went on I felt less and less attracted to the art form but my desire to be creative grew stronger. After marriage, fatherhood & promotions in the work force I still felt empty inside. Dead, even. One day while on the train going to a job that I absolutely hated, I got up to leave & I saw everyone that was going to work as living corpses! Myself included. We were all dead inside & it showed on the outside! Scary! That was when I decided that I was going to resurrect myself no matter what the odds were & continue to be a creative soul. I have never written a script or even dreamed about filmmaking, but I put all my fears aside and ignored the negative voices (both real and imagined) & set out to see this dream become reality.
What does CTB stand for?
CTB stands for Catch the Bus which is a phrase that means to commit suicide.
Why did you choose such a topic?
Aside from what I explained above, I felt like it's a topic that has to be brought to the forefront. So many young people are facing unimaginable problems (hopelessness, depression, bullying, sexuality discrimination, etc) and I wanted to make a film that shows a minor glimpse of this reality. I also wanted to express a feeling that I had myself: just because you're breathing doesn't mean you're alive. But as long as you're breathing, it's not too late to accomplish your heart's desire.
Where's the money going?
I have been blessed to find such talented and dedicated people who took precious time out of their busy schedules to aid me in this project. Most of these people helped me for free. But post production is a step we can't skimp on. The money from donations will help with promoting our film (DVD artwork, website development, posters, t-shirts, etc), marketing & film festival submissions (Sundance, Tribeca, Slamdance, etc).
What is the general purpose of this film?
After neglecting my creative side for so long, it feels amazing to take a leap of faith into another creative outlet. This film will serve as my production teams calling card as well as other projects already in the works. I also want to spread the message that you don't have to be afraid to try something new.
Thank you for your contributions in making this dream a reality!!"CTB" is a short film about a depressed, young artist named Ashley who turns... more

I am an American who believes that Freedom, Liberty, and Justice for all are the fundamental rights of a modern human civilization, no matter who you are, or where you are. Freedom should reach all who are living in the world. No matter what or who may oppress you. Freedom is a divine right, given from the Creator. Whomever you call your God or being that you worship, even the atheist, whom fails to believe in the Creator, his ‘will’ reaches and protects you as well. Yet there are people who attempt to obstruct this ‘will’. They create excuses to deny this ‘will’, and then they create political and media induced formulas to cheat people of this ‘will’. t the fundamental core of the enlightenment of man is the light of the Spirit, and that source energy is love and compassion that flows through all things. If anything is devoid of ‘Love or Compassion,’ it is not of the Creator and therefore destructive to life and thyself. There is the right path of thought, a simple as that is put. To deny life is to guarantee certain death. To deny freedom is to extinguish the light of liberty that burns in the thoughts of the mind in every free man and woman. As a bird must fly across the sky so shall the light of liberty travel the human consciousness of man through out the world. To be denied such a right is to be robbed of the soul in its entirety.
No mountain is so vast we can not move it in our minds and further with our hearts. No life lived, is ever in vein nor forgotten, no matter how short or long one may have lived. No people upon this earth are ever so insignificant, we turn blind eyes and death ears, when they need our help the most to stand and do whats right. That becomes the test of humanity, true equality at the very core.http://rtruth.blog.com/2011/09/13/mideastconflict%E2%80%A8/ I am an American who... more

I happened to watch an amazing video on YouTube and I must admit, I was in tears after i saw it...
Please see this video; you can see Narayanan Krishnan helping the mentally destitute, the homeless and elderly people with food, water and basic hygiene everyday in his home town in India. This man gave up his budding career as a Chef to help destitutes in his town, without any personal gain. What a selfless man!! I am truly inspired and humbled with the efforts of Narayanan Krishnan, who also features in the top 10 of CNN's HEROES list in 2010.

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, when I looked back on my life in retrospection, I asked a question to thy self- what is the most precious thing that I’ve in my whole life? Without any hesitation, my inner voice echoed with the most important word of my life- “Education”. Yes, I've no doubt whatsoever that “Education” is the most important and reliable thing that I've gained in my whole life.
Today in the world of materialistic emotions I feel, I just can’t even rely on money because it can also come to an end one day, but I know I’m well educated to make money and it’s my education, which has made me self dependent. Deep inside I know I will only walk with huge confidence in the so called human jungle because I’m well educated to handle every situation and I’m equally equipped to survive here. It is because of my education today that I'm so certain that I just can’t be simply lost in this crowded world and that I’m good enough to tackle everything with ease.
I'm sure Darwin was right, it is all about the survival of the fittest, but things have changed since the Darwin's time and it is no more just the survival against the climatic catastrophe or the predator-pray dynamics rather a new taxonomy of survival has evolved with new words such as- Money, Education, Success etc. Though, at first all such words seem to be different, but they are very interdependent just as Darwin's theory of evolution has emphasized on the phenomena of interdependence. Anyway, I'm not going to talk about science, but I've something more important than it to discuss at the moment.
