“Tough Times Don’t Last For Long” (reflections of a writer) GD

When on tour of a children’s hospital today… I tell you, there are some remarkable people in this world, making it happen for the ill and terminally ill.  They won’t miss school, nor the prom…  I teared up as I was taking that tour.  Just knowing that this globe holds so many compassionate people.  Last night I interviewed an independent recording artist by the name of Darien Dean on my self-produced, Blog Talk Radio Show, “A Touch of Grace”.   Tomorrow, I’ll get to hear a world leader speak.  I have to tell you, sometimes I have to pinch myself about the blessings I’ve been given over the course of this life.  It’s not easy sometimes for any of us, but know that those tough times don’t last for long.  Never be a victim of a past circumstance — make peace with it, and free yourself from bondage.

And these are the…

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…

  1. On the fear that some, or many, have of compassion:

    Often, it takes a compassionate mind to recognize, and empathize with the beneficiaries of, compassion.

    Why is it that in U.S. society, many think of cancer as “the Big C”? Fear, perhaps. That which we are afraid to speak of–for we might “catch it.” Well, I think of compassion as “the Big C,” but for all its positivity, and shrug off negative comments made by people who think it foolish and/or a waste of time to be selflessly kind.
