I am sharing with you some of the videos I have made. I do hope you enjoy them and share them with your friends and family.
It’s a rare thing to find someone who can inspire you, move you, someone who makes you want to improve your craft or try new things. I found that person, of all places, on Facebook. Greg Wickenburg lives in Chandler, Arizona. Greg is a photographer who also happens to be a C/5 quadriplegic.
This video, part of a story I did for the El Paso Herald-Post, is from my visit with him on the 12th of August. After seeing his photos, and hearing his story I had to drive up and meet him. I hope you will find him as inspiring as I have.
The Rev. Dr. and Ms. Heimer
Fifty years is a long time to be married. It’s also becoming rare to see couples stay married twenty years, much less fifty. I wanted to know what keeps two people together that long, so I spoke to Karl and Jeanette Heimer. This year they will have been married for fifty-two years. FIFTY-TWO!
I sat down with the Karl and Jeanette to ask them what has kept them together, and what advice they would offer to today’s couples. I hope to enjoy watching this video as much as I enjoyed making it!
This video was made in connection with a story I did with the El Paso Herald-Post.
I was recently able to sit down with Veronica Herrera, the founder of Victims Legacy, and Carmen Tellez. These two women shared with me the stories of how they lost family in accidents caused by drunk drivers.
Ms. Herrera founded Victims Legacy with quite a few aims in mind. They are an advocacy group who works for the victims and their families. They are also working to educate the public about the dangers of drunk driving. One other aspect I like, they are working to change the mindset that seems to be overly prevalent here in El Paso. That mindset is that it is okay to drive drunk, as long as you are not too drunk.
I have mentioned, in the opening sequence that I have also learned about forgiveness. If these two remarkable women can forgive the person who snatched away their loved ones, then I can forgive others as well- and this includes a serial killer from Texas.
I have posted this video in advance of an article that will run at the El Paso Herald-Post for a number of reasons. First, I feel that their message is an important one. We need to hear what these women have to say, and we need to listen now. Even if we do not drink, we may know someone who does.
If you would like to read any of the articles that accompany the videos, there is a link in the description of each. Also, you can simply click here to be taken to my articles at the El Paso Herald-Post.
If you have a story idea, simply let me know, and I will do by best to bring the story to life.
