General Vincent K. Brooks

Background

In an age where voices can be reduced to soundbites, cliques and inflammatory comments and categorization.

In general finding the worst in each other and blanket statements about “what we have seen before“.

And, those buckets are based on National Origin and Religion.

How do we go forward?

And, so we ask ourselves how do we go forward or are we are just in a maze of bad choices, which leads to stillness, and assumption of a fetal position.

As I was watching an interview yesterday, I heard the name of Vincent Brooks.  I googled on his name and found a couple of freely and broadly accessible videos on youtube.
