Do you know who you are? by Danny J. Stevens

Do you know who you are?  That questions sparks a different response at various stages of my life.

 Early on in life I wanted to fly a plane. The stories of grand adventures and learning would often be told when I was getting my haircut. I used to give this lady a kiss for a cookie, or a story to cut my hair. I am not sure where the toy went or where it came from but I used to have a wooden airplane which I could sit in much like the plastic cars kids have today.
Is this information significant? I think so, it tells of my imagination. It tells you of my wish for adventure. My love to tell stories and most important – a chocolate chip cookie can open my soul.
As you sit there next to your fellow members and guest, do you know who they are?
We are all unique. Just as each flake of snow is said to be different, each human being although similar to others is a unique creation. The current world is estimated at approximately 6.7 trillion people. This don’t include an estimate of how many people have came before, this is just the current population. That number alone is staggering. The population of the United States is approximately 306 million. Approximately one third of a Trillion, or imagine 22 countries of the size of the United States in the world.

Each person is unique, different friends, different experiences, different cultures, different beliefs, different wants, different desires, different aspirations, different languages, different customs and different thoughts. This represents only a small list of ways in which we could be different.
Some people in an effort to identify themselves to others use labels representing a belief system such as I am a Lutheran, I am agnostic, or I am a Catholic. Others will exclaim I am a Democrat or Republican. I believe you will agree that labels only tell a small part about who we are.
In an effort to tell you more about who I am I might use job titles. While they give you some idea of what I do, they really do not explain much about who I am, and what makes me unique.
Human beings often join clubs, bands of people with similar interest on some plane. Should I tell you I tell you the list of organization I belonged? Would you then know what makes me unique?
I love life
I love to laugh
I love music
I have worked It Information Technology for most of my life. I worked myself up from the journeyman levels to being a Supervisor, Manager. I have run my own retail shop for the home computer market in the early 1980s. Currently I am interested in Ebooks, Personal Development, Business, am a Licensed Health Insurance agent in the Medicare Supplement and Advantage plan market.
I have a variety of interest; Reading, travel, computers, writing to name a few.

This talk gives you a little idea of who I am, or at least who I am not. You have asked me to give you an idea of who I am in approximately 6 minutes. Impossible!

    Death is a sad event! Almost everyone knew of Michael Jackson. Some enjoyed his work and some did not, but it didn’t affect how Michael lived. That is the important part of the events is how he lived.
    I was somewhat of a fan of the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds many years ago. Remember how they made appearances on tv and were even cast in to their own cartoon! Those are my memories of Michael. I never was involved in the watching the “Ben” or “Willard” movies. If you remember the cartoons of the Jackson 5 Michael had a pet snake!
    This is not to say that I didn’t enjoy some of Michael’s music. I remember the 3D show at Disneyland and I admit that was awesome! Michael was a very talented individual! He will be missed by many!
