Perks Group Provides Community Advertising Exposure to Local Businesses

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 31, 2018 / — Perks Group, an affinity group helping thousands of national and local companies build their reach and attain new customers, is one of the nation's fastest growing loyalty companies. Through an extensive network of top-retailers and professional businesses, the Perks Program offers a range of benefits to merchants, including otherwise inaccessible exposure to new customers.

One of the toughest hurdles for new and upcoming businesses is finding their footing within the proper market. The right customer base or network generates its own kind of return, but the problem is finding a well-suited market and leveraging it to the fullest.

Perks Group ensures that its members not only have access to a giant network of retailers, businesses, and customers, but it also provides many opportunities for exposure. When a new merchant signs up for the Perks Program, they are announced to local corporate to stir up activity and interest. This way, new members can share what discounts they have to offer and learn about the available savings options in their areas.

When a new merchant registers in the program, they have the chance to boost their company’s reputation through profile descriptions and company information. They can also post regular discounts and offers as well as feature printable coupons on the Perks website.

Marketing is a huge expense that requires savviness in various channels including social media, email, print, graphic design, and creative writing in addition to market research on target markets within specific channels. We’re told that small businesses and startups should allocate at least 12%-20% of their gross revenue to marketing.1 Becoming a Perks Group member is an advantage for any business, but an especially beneficial resource for those companies needing to immediately broaden their customer reach marketing.

In the Perk Group program, members send and receive frequent updates on new and upcoming offers around the community. Periodic emails are sent to registered Perks members containing merchant information, prompting them into action through product descriptions and promo advertisements.

Apart from the network of customers and businesses they gain entry to, Perks Group members also have various professional tools and resources at their disposal. They get free, time-saving management tools to improve efficiency and access to the same benefits as standard card holders. This allows them to make discounted purchases on a range of products and services, furthering minimizing operational costs for members.

Members get to save on everyday purchases like food and essentials and discover deals on services and products no matter where they are. They can access perks on the road, using mobile apps to determine what promotions are available in their reach.

The Perks Group program has hundreds of thousands of locations throughout the U.S., ensuring member benefits even while traveling. Currently, the Perks Group boasts millions of members nationwide, and the number continues to grow as more businesses learn about and sign up for the resourceful program.

Watchdog Demands Action: Investigate the Link Between Psychiatric Drugs and Violence

CCHR campaign launched to educate law enforcement, policy makers and school officials about violence- and suicide-inducing drug risks

Between 2004 and 2012 the FDA received a staggering 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects.

Despite a review of the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System, which found that psychotropic drugs can trigger violence, this connection is not being taken into consideration by officials.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 31, 2018 / — According to the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) an investigation into the link between psychiatric drugs and violence is long overdue when you take into consideration that between 2004 and 2012 the FDA received a staggering 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects.

With the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting that gun deaths in 2017 were the highest in almost 50 years at 39,733 many officials turned toward laws to restrict access to firearms in the United States following such tragic events as the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. However, this statistic paints an entirely different picture when viewed with another alarming trend, the surge in the number of Americans taking dangerous psychiatric drugs. [1]

Studies show that an estimated 40 million Americans take psychiatric drugs, antidepressants being the most common, and that from 1996 to 2013 the number of people filling a benzodiazepine prescription increased by 67 percent. Unlike the well-publicized opioid crisis, which has seen a 20%, decrease in prescribing every year since 2012, the prescription of benzodiazepines continues to rise. It is also known that of the nearly 410 psychiatric drug warnings, 27 warn of violence, aggression, hostility, mania, psychosis or homicidal ideation and 49 warn of self-harm or suicide/suicidal ideation. [2] [3] [4]

Even despite a review of the Food and Drug Administration’s Adverse Event Reporting System, which found that antidepressants and several other psychotropic drugs can trigger violence, this connection is not being taken into consideration by officials who instead focus on gun control and greater access to mental health services which all too often means simply more people on the very drugs that have been linked to violence. [5]

For the past 20 years, CCHR has been investigating and exposing the correlation between mass murder, violent crime, suicide and psychiatric drugs. During this time CCHR has reported that those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs have committed at least 36 school shootings and/or school-related acts of violence. [4]

CCHR is urging lawmakers to look into the connection between psychiatric drugs and the deadly events that transpired across the country in 2018 due to the fact that between 2004 and 2012 the FDA’s safety information and adverse event reporting program, known as MedWatch, received a staggering 14,773 reports of psychiatric drugs causing violent side effects, including 1,531 cases of homicidal ideation/homicide, 3,287 cases of mania, and 8,219 cases of aggression. For more information please read Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence & Suicide.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit

Dornie headquartered Dreamharvest partners with awardwinning India based Edtech company Aginitio Education, poising MageQuill for further international success.

We believe the world would be a better place when young people are empowered and can solve problems creatively. We are proud to partner with MageQuill in achieving this dream.”

— Kartik Sharma

DORNIE, HIGHLANDS, SCOTLAND, December 31, 2018 / — Indian Summer in the Scottish Highlands
• Dornie headquartered Dreamharvest partners with award-winning India based Edtech company Aginitio Education, poising MageQuill for further international success.
• Dreamharvest was almost unable to handle its amazing success story until a creative approach paved the way for a million new users before the onset of summer.

Dornie, Scotland, 31 December 2018 – a start-up based in the Scottish Highlands developed its creative writing platform in order to get more young voices heard. In the year of young people, the subscription-based writing and publishing platform, MageQuill, is in touch with today’s youth, helping them to unleash their creativity, write about today's issues, their concerns, their thoughts and ideas, without boundaries within an online community of peers.

This new way of robust interaction is called Creativity 5.0 after the highest tier of societal development. Creativity is making inroads in education, and wellness all around the world, complementing computerization and AI.

MageQuill as a product became a success, though handling the scaling from its remote corner of the Scottish Highlands proved more problematic. Using a bit of its own creative efforts, the right solution in the form of Agnitio Education was unveiled. Two countries and two passions came together to ensure delivery and a new and exciting expansion.

Dreamharvest CEO, Marianne Rugard Jarvstrat said: “Brilliant stories from passionate writers don’t have borders, so we need to be there for them, wherever they are in the world. MageQuill can now be available for all writers with a passion so we are excited to work with Agnitio Education and their incredible team in making this journey happen.”

Agnitio Education is already well established as an international edtech company, and has already proven that they can scale. As a recent startup themselves they have retained the speed to adapt to new frontiers and the passion to follow it through.

Agnitio CEO Kartik Sharma explains: “We are very excited by the idea of fostering creativity and innovation in young people. We believe the world would be a better place when young people are empowered and can solve problems creatively. We are proud to partner with MageQuill in achieving this dream.”

On the last days of the year of young people and just in time for the start of the month of creativity, it leaves us time to appreciate that despite the tough economic climate and rural solitude, creativity and passion are what rings in the new year.

Mossytop Dreamharvest Ltd, trading as Dreamharvest, owns the trademarks MageQuill and Bombadil Publishing, and is headquartered in Dornie in the heart of the Scottish Highlands and is internationalising its products on a global scale. Dreamharvest works closely with education Scotland to bring creative writing to Scotland, and likewise the All Indian Council for Technical Education, AICTE, to enhance the creative learning for their students at their 10,000+ colleges. Bombadil Publishing is revolutionising publishing and enabling new ways of learning for young people across the world, and gets young people writing its pioneering creative writing platform, MageQuill. With a growing client base of schools, colleges and universities in the UK, Europe, India, China and the Americas, MageQuill connects young writers in over 90 countries with each other and a trusted network of international mentors.

Agnitio Education is an education and skill development / training technology company having experience of working with educational institutions / organisations and corporate L&D initiatives. They work in the areas of learning technology, Augmented / Virtual Reality, Internet of Things (IoT) and AI based Mobile learning. They have presence in India, Middle East and UK and work with over 100+ clients covering 1000+ educational and related institutions. The team has deep vertical expertise in education and skill development and how technology can work to solve real life problems in this sector in a scalable way. There have been special features in CNBC Young Turks as innovative startup of India and also covered in NASSCOM 10,000 startups, Wall Street Journals' Live Mint and was awarded Hot 100 technology startups in India in 2015 by KPMG.

#Loneliness- The Virus’ of Modern Age by Tony Jeton Selimi is the Finalist Winner of the TopShelf Indie Book Awards 2018

The solution to immunise against loneliness, the virus of the modern age

Another reader adds, “A most touching and inspiring, uplifting book written with courage, humbleness, with truth from the big heart of its author. A book for anyone and everyone, a must for all that are facing struggles in this modern age of false connectedness.

#Loneliness meticulously written by Tony J. Selimi is the TopShelf Indie Book Awards 2018 Finalist Winner. Empowering Readers to Embrace the Science of Oneness.

A warm, insightful book gives you a clear road-map to overcome the loneliness that you will experience at different times in your life.”

— Brian Tracy – The author of The Power of Self Confidence

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, December 31, 2018 / — Loneliness is a subject that has fascinated Tony Jeton Selimi for years, inspiring the Human Behavior and Cognition Expert to dive deeper into the topic more than anyone else, and producing the meticulously written TopShelf Indie Book Finalist Award 2018 Winner #Loneliness: The Virus of the Modern Age.

In a technologically advanced world where communication is instant, where billions of people can interact at just a moment’s notice, it will come as a shock to many to learn that loneliness is an epidemic more rampant and destructive than smoking and being obese. Research suggests that 42.6 million adults over age 45 in the U.S. suffer from chronic loneliness, in fact, almost everyone faces adversity from the isolation that causes them some degree of depression, anxiety or diminished self-esteem.

With a thought-provoking blurb “So connected, yet desperately alone” Selimi truly breaks new ground in a volume that received a Finalist Award in the 2016 International Book Contest, was the book excellence award winner in 2017, and received five-star seal in readers digest. Throughout the books, Tony makes us re-examine what truly brings us out of a natural state of healthy balance, is the root cause of disease, and what creates the segregation experienced worldwide.

Fastidiously researched and written by Tony Jeton Selimi, each chapter of the classic self-help bestseller reflects the newest developments in the evolution of human consciousness field today and teaches us how loneliness impacts every sphere of our life including our mental health, emotional states, our confidence, interpersonal relationships, the business and leadership performance, and our ability to make fast and well-informed choices and decisions.

Jack Canfield, Americas #1 Success Coach and the Co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul™ “quotes: “#Loneliness is a masterpiece that beautifully demystifies the evolutionary role of loneliness, echoes a powerful existential message for mankind, and amplifies people’s faith in the power of love.”

This masterpiece that explores the fierce scientific, psychological and spiritual impact of adversity and the loneliness, rejection, and isolation that follows, was born of Tony’s extraordinary experience of child abuse, being bullied at school, atrocities of a civil war, homelessness, identity crisis, and starting a new life in London. Forced to go beyond the limits of known science (he had been made redundant from a senior technology job he loved for almost two decades) he was catapulted into a remarkable, body-mind-soul-searching and ultimately ground-breaking healing journey. Tony pioneered a unique healing technique and a methodology that guides us directly to the root cause of our loneliness from a longstanding difficulty – spiritual, mental, emotional physical, relationship, social, business or money – and then gives us the tools to resolve it.

Loneliness is a problem that has become an ironic epidemic in a world that is more interconnected than ever before. Empowering readers to redefine themselves and overcome the adversity, anxiety and stagnancy likely blighting their lives, Selimi truly breaks new ground in a volume endorsed by Jack Canfield, inspired the creation of Living My Illusion documentary series and appeared on Brian Tracey show for ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and their affiliate channels. It’s also been a hit among critics, too, with one recently writing, "The worldview developed here transcends science, dogma, and belief, giving readers a new way to reconnect with their truth, hearts, and Divine within”.

At the most sophisticated nexus of body-mind-heart-spirit healing today, #Loneliness offers a simple, imaginative process that is a revolutionary way to heal our pain, connect all of the fragmented parts of our being, and prepare us for the next stages of human evolution where Artificial Intelligence becomes an integral part of our living. Selimi brings the latest findings of how to heal our being from the inevitable life adversities with a fast, effective, and easy to implement a technique that anyone from a CEO to a child can use.

Internationally renowned keynote speaker and healer Tony says, “I wrote this book to assist the lonely create life breakthroughs and learn new ways to grow, innovate, share and reconnect with their hearts infinite innate wisdom and love so they can be conscious creators of their inspired destiny. I wrote it as “A Call for Love” to help people feel more connected to one another and life in general, to create a healthy life-work balance, and be more empowered and centred in themselves. I wrote it because I believe that we are all worthy of love."

Who should read this book?

No matter who you are – a young adult, parent, a professional coach, therapist, lawyer, banker, CEO, Business Owner, HR Director, millionaire, billionaire, or merely curious and young at heart and seeking greater significance and purpose in your life – #Loneliness is the life manual that teaches you how to overcome adversity with ease, inspires you to turn your painful experiences into powerful lessons for others to use on their healing journey and empowers you to create a meaningful vision for your life consciously.

Dr. Paul Abell, Beverly Hills Healthcare Consultant, Draws Upon Personal Experiences in New Book

“After a lifetime career in the field of alternative healthcare, I found myself facing a challenge when I chose to become a father at age 65.” – Dr. Paul Abell

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 30, 2018 / — Dr. Paul Abell, an accomplished healthcare consultant and practitioner, has released a powerful book of wisdom on Amazon and Kindle. Entitled, "Joy is . . . 365 Keys to Longevity," the book is a synthesis of profound teachings from religion, philosophy, psychology and spirituality regarding the pathway to creating joy in a person’s life, which modern research has shown to be the key to longevity. There are 365 succinct transformational concepts on which readers can contemplate or meditate each day.

“The book was born out of the love for my child,” explains Abell, “After a lifetime career in the field of alternative healthcare and longevity, I found myself facing a unique challenge when I chose to become a father at age 65.”

Abell explains that he needed to enhance the possibilities of living long enough to raise his child to manhood. His intense search for the ultimate keys to longevity revealed that “Joy” is the fundamental dynamic common to most centenarians. In sharing the profound principles which foster a joyous life, he simultaneously leaves a blue print for his son to live a spiritually ethical life in his new book. This timely collection of transformational principles has been described as the “Tao Te Ching of Longevity.”

“Dr. Abell has done an excellent job in taking his life experience, research and the knowledge from the great teachers and distilling it down to the key to a long life,” states Steve G., a reader on Amazon, “Joy, and how to understand what joy is, along with daily messages of what that is to be used for is my daily inspiration!”

For example, one passage in the book states that: “Joy is having unwavering trust in a loved one; for without trust, love cannot be more than a fiery passion unable to survive precarious uncertainty.” Another section describes how: “Joy is having learned that to worry excessively every day is a surefire method of reducing the number of days a person will have left in which they can still worry.”

Dr. Paul Abell has been a healthcare consultant and practitioner for more than 45 years. He has blended the use of Voice Dialogue Psychology of Selves consciousness work with Asian medicine into his own unique system of attaining wellness and longevity. Now semi-retired and living in Lake Arrowhead California with his wife and young child, he continues to explore the realms of psychology, philosophy and spirituality.

“I think this book offers a fantastic way to start your day,” states KMA, another reader on Amazon, “with 365 simple yet profound concepts to meditate on, one for each day of the year, one cannot help but feel uplifted and joyful afterwards. Paul Abell has created a simple method to add joy and years to our lives by helping us to focus on the things that really matter.”

Dubbed “THE GREEN CRUSADER” by the media at St.John Ambulance Sarawak Dinner at the state parliament house

"Miraculous Changes For The Better In 2018"
"Protect The Environment, Fauna and Flora " "Make Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Compulsory Subject In Malaysia"

KUCHING, SARAWAK, MALAYSIA, December 30, 2018 / — The year 2018 has witnessed unprecedented changes, on a scale almost unbelievable by any standard.

To all in the country, the dramatic changes are considered to be for the good of this young nation, a Federation formed in 1963 consisting of Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore. Unfortunately, due to fundamental ideological differences, Singapore left the newly formed federation two years later, to become an independent sovereign nation, a small city-state with hardly any natural resources except its people.

How do we assess the progress of these miraculous changes?
The people of this country have achieved what they always wanted, and this augurs well for this young Federation. To translate this dream into reality is no mean job, a gigantic exercise, with few parallels.

The situation today is analogous to the case of a man lost in the jungle for a 100 days, weak, hungry and miserable and suddenly served with a 100-course Michelin Star dinner. Obviously, no mortal in that state is capable of enjoying that kind of gigantic dinner all of a sudden! He needs time to adjust himself.

For any nation with a good, dedicated, honest, fair and just leadership, there is no reason why it should not succeed.
So there is no need to worry as it will take time for people to accept the changes which are for the long term peace, harmony, progress and prosperity of Malaysia.

The dramatic change does show that people are maturing, and many millions have changed their attitude towards race and beliefs for the better.
Malaysians have seen the untold sufferings and miseries of the peoples in the Middle-East and Africa particularly, and the destruction of their countries due to conflicts and intolerance caused by different ethnic and religious groups .
We treasure our traditional peaceful and harmonious way of life , which we have been enjoying since time immemorial.
We noted that a few "newly emergent" countries , one bigger than Europe with 7,000 years of recorded history , which are stable and enjoying peace and with dedicated good leadership are on the rise, overtaking all western nations for the first time in history .
Our country can achieve greatness as we have rich natural resources, hard working people and blessed being spared of all forms of natural disasters .

On ENVIRONMENT, the younger generations especially are now more aware of the importance of environmental conservation and protection.
However, the action of some people in the name of progress and prosperity is still considered detrimental to the fragile environment.
The current erratic pattern of climate change is giving cause of concern. While some of the uninitiated were recently enjoying the extraordinarily early cherry blossom, traditionally only in Spring, I am sure many of us are deeply concerned that the Seasons are now shifting due to climate change. Winter and Summer are extreme, and generally temperatures are getting erratic.

The mighty forests must be protected and conserved as the clearing of these rainforests for massive economic activities have contributed much to climate change and the extinction of flora and fauna species which are of great importance to human existence.
In addition, the loss of forests, such as mangrove forest, may result in the disruption of the food chain and in-turn causing reduction in food production, particularly fish and shell fish species.

The use of fossil fuel and coal especially should be gradually replaced by sustainable energy including renewal energy such as hydro-electricity, wind energy, solar energy and tidal energy.

The government should formulate the right policies and provide appropriate enabling environments which are conducive for such transformation.

In the Tropics with abundent sunshine, mighty rivers and cascading streams, waterfalls and no shortage of wind anytime, we could, therefore, consider seriously putting up solar panels for our homes, buildings and factories, the government to set up wind turbines and harnessing the rivers and the streams including making good use of the tidal waves in coastal areas.

The government could perhaps consider giving tax incentives to all the citizens and to commerce and industries, for supporting the sustainable energy exercise. The incentives should include waiving sales tax for all Electric and Hybrid vehicles and also import duty for the imported ones. Public transport buses and lorries and to go green as well with tax incentives. These are examples of enabling environments that are necessary to create a sustainable transformation.

I always stress, the best hospitals in the country could never solve the multiple health problems created by pollution which is basically the cause of most health problems, particularly chest and lung infections of all sorts, and worst of all cancer, which is so common today, and it totally ruins the patients and their families financially and sometimes breaking up the families.
The root cause must be addressed. A clean and healthy nation not only has happy people but saves the people and the government millions of dollars, A healthy nation would be more productive and creative. It is a win-win situation.

Many a precious life is lost when it can .in fact, be prevented. According to surveys, cardiac arrest or heart attack is one of the top killers.
There are many instances of people who have cardiac arrest but there is nobody nearby to render help using the only known method today ie Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. However, not everybody knows CPR unless the person is a first aider, a nurse, a doctor or just being trained in CPR.
I have been campaigning for CPR to be taught in every home, school, factory and everywhere. Last year the then deputy Federal Education Minister strongly supported my proposal to make the teaching of CPR compulsory in all schools and institutions of learning throughout the country. He said that the ministry would study as to how to implement this proposal nationwide. This was also supported by Sarawak Minister of Welfare.
I am confident that the present Federal Government would give its support to my proposal so that more precious lives can be saved.

Happy New Year

We’ve been nominated for several awards. To finish the year off with a bang and start 2019 fantastically, our books will be included in gift bags to 2019 Golden Globe nominees.”

— Lisa Diane Kastner

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 29, 2018 / — This is Lisa Diane Kastner, the Founder and Executive Editor at Running Wild Press

We are an atypical publishing house with an all woman staff and volunteers plus we only publishing great stories and great writing that don’t fit neatly in a box.

In only our second full year of publishing we’re excited to say we’ve had an impressive year.

We’ve been nominated for several awards including the Pushcart Prize. To finish the year off with a bang and start 2019 with a fantastic start, two of our books will be included in gift bags to 2019 Golden Globe nominees and presenters the weekend of January 7, 2019.

When we were informed that both "Frontal Matter: Glue Gone Wild’ and ‘Running Wild Anthology of Stories, Volume 2" would be included in the gift bags, I couldn’t be more thrilled. This is the perfect tribute to our authors, our readers, and the stories of 2018 as well as a gorgeous beginning to 2019.

“Frontal Matter: Glue Gone Wild” by Suzanne Samples is a fun, funny, and heartbreakingly real memoir of a woman's fight against terminal brain cancer. The writing is honest, charming, and full of cuss words.

Including, "Life After Breath” by Tori Eldridge and “Visiting Friends” by Rebecca House which were named to the HWA Bram Stoker Award™ 2018 Reading List.

How Did Running Wild Press Get Into The Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards Gift Bags?

A dear friend reached out to me and mentioned that there was an opportunity to be included. There are only a handful of companies authorized to provide gift baskets for events such as the Golden Globes, the Emmys, the Grammys, the Oscars, and SAG Awards. I figured, heck, can’t hurt to have a chat. That chat resulted in our stories being included in 50 gift bags for both Golden Globe nominees and presenters as well as SAG Award nominees and presenters. We couldn’t be more excited. Only a select few are invited to be included in these baskets so this truly is an honor.

Who Among the Recipients Are You Most Excited to Meet?

Admittedly, I doubt that I’ll personally meet any of the celebrities or nominees during the weekend of the Golden Globes or the Screen Actors Guild Awards, but I am incredibly excited to have the likes of Bradly Cooper, Lady Gaga, Spike Lee, Constance Wu, Charlize Theron, and Lin-Manuel Miranda read these amazing stories.

I have admired Bradley Cooper’s rise and strategic choices for years. Lady Gaga continues to broaden and expand her repertoire. Her ability to tap into her own meager beginnings in “A Star Is Born” was truly breathtaking. Spike Lee’s true gift to bring forth real life situations and demonstrate their relevance to today’s society is beyond phenomenal. Constance Wu and the rest of the cast of “Crazy Rich Asians” not only brought theatrical houses down but showed the world how a Rom-Con should be done. And Lin-Manuel’s gifts for storytelling – no matter the form (Have you seen his Twitter account? Oy!) continues to inspire. I could go on and on. Needless to say, we’re proud to have these stories in such amazingly talented artists’ hands.

What Inspired You to Start Running Wild Press?

I had spent over a decade studying the art of storytelling from New York Times Bestsellers, such as Jonathan Maberry, Alexander Chee, Porochista Khakpour, Da Chen, Pulitzer Prize nominees such as Luis Alberto Urrea, National Book Award winners such as Julia Glass, Ha Jin, and PEN Award winners such as Percival Everett. I studied fiction, non-fiction, memoir, journalism, screenplay writing. Each experience and interaction brought greater knowledge and understanding.

I ran several writers workshops and writing organizations including Running Wild Writers Community out of Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia. I often found writers whose writing was on-point – truly magical stories with great writing; the pieces simply needed a little tweaking. I gave the authors feedback and recommended that they send the pieces out for publication. I checked with each one and was often shocked when they said they couldn’t find home for their work. When I asked why, they informed me that the publications said the author’s writing was wonderful but didn’t quite fit.

The more I heard this, the clearer it was that tons of great stories with great writing simply don’t fit into mainstream media.

So, I created Running Wild Press for great stories and great writing that don’t fit neatly in a box to find worldwide audiences. I’ve been humbled by the public’s enthusiastic response to our stories. We’ve been nominated for several “Best of” collections, the Pushcart Prize, and several more honors that are currently in the works.

How will you celebrate your birthday?

Celebrating 400 years of African American contributions to this country

Each year beginning in 1619 Africans fought for their survival, and most of all fought for their humanity.”

— Ted Ellis

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, December 29, 2018 / — Every year of our life we get a chance to celebrate a wonderful milestone, our birthday! Birthdays are special days to reflect on our past experiences and accomplishments while looking toward the future. Looking back over the years, we realize there were challenging moments and circumstances that we had to face, but, we grew, we became better because of those obstacles. We became a bit older and a bit wiser.

Birthdays are impactful and special, something we instinctively want to share with others, with our family, and with friends. Everyone gathers together to share stories, memorable stories, stories that shaped who we are, stories of our past that enlighten, invigorate, and even empower. Our birthdays provide an opportunity for us to bond, one to another. Our birthdays come and go, yet with every moment that passes, we never forget our history or our journey.

In 1619, the White Lion ship flying the Dutch flag carried on board 20 or so odd enslaved Africans to the English colonies at Point Comfort, VA., currently known as Fort Monroe National Monument. First known as “The Gibraltar of the Chesapeake” and later as the “Freedom Fortress,” Fort Monroe has a storied history in the defense of our country and its struggle for freedom. It was a stronghold for the Union Army and a place of freedom for enslaved Africans.

Our landing at Point Comfort marked a long chapter of enslavement of Africans throughout this nation, and it was not until 1865 that the enslaved became free men and women. Each year beginning in 1619 Africans fought for their survival, and most of all fought for their humanity. Our survival through periods of Emancipation, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, and post-Civil Rights continue to prove our resilience in the fight for humanity, justice, and equality. Each year we reflect upon our progress, the lessons learned and triumphs earned.

Our birthdays are special! We celebrate what we have accomplished over a period of 400 years. The inventions that advance our livelihood, the medicines that cure our diseases, and the methodologies that improve our agriculture. We are a people of deep faith with unshakable trust in God, and as freed Africans, we constructed churches, schools, colleges, universities, roads, and cities. We were and continue to be the architects of our communities and we celebrate that. From the bellows of slave ships to working in the fields of cotton, rice, sugar and tobacco, and then becoming literate, advancing ourselves as inventors, teachers, preachers, politicians, nurses, doctors, scientists, scholars, entrepreneurs, culinary chefs, composers of music, the arts to our excellence in athletics. We celebrate all our accomplishments.

The year 2019 reflects 400 years since those 20 or so odd enslaved Africans arrived in Point Comfort, Virginia in 1619. It is a year to commemorate and pay homage to our African ancestors for enduring and ensuring an existence for us today. Although there are continued struggles and challenges we will recognize all of our accomplishments and celebrate those achievements on our birthday.

The Department of the Interior and the National Park Service has appointed the 400 Years of African History Commission and charged it with planning, developing and carrying out programs and activities throughout our 50 United States. It is my honor to serve on the Commission and help guide those activities over the next year.

2019 is a very special year, and I will celebrate my personal birthday by honoring my African ancestors. I will commemorate the significance of their sacrifice, and in so doing, I will live a life of hope, purpose, and promise focused on forging a better future for all of us. I will recognize those who have helped me in my personal journey and lastly, I will continue to pursue my passion and share that passion with others.

Most importantly I am asking everyone next year…How will you celebrate your birthday?

Respectfully submitted by,

Ted Ellis Commissioner of the 400 Years of African-American History Commission, National Juneteenth Art Ambassador, Pigment International Advisor, Museum Studies Graduate Candidate, Artist & Cultural Historian
