Profile of a Problem Drinker

Children of Alcohol - National Film Board of Canada.

This short documentary focuses on the children of alcoholics.
In the relaxed environment of a mountain campsite, a group of young people discuss their anger and frustration, and talk about their struggle to cope with the problems created by their parents' drinking.
By sharing their experiences, they open a door for others like them.
Aimed primarily at an audience of elementary school children and older, this film provides an excellent vehicle for generating discussion about alcohol abuse and the family 


Know Thyself - Do You know that Loneliness is Lethal

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. - Francis of Assisi

Know those around you intimately

Then get busy and serve them

God is always with you if you Seek Him

My First Son ~ I don't know if he is still alive!

Preface -  I like  to review a few of the pictures I have hanging around me: and some of the music I play as my moods come into change me.
The more I do, the more I know where I am, in the search for myself. Maybe what I share here will help you along your way to know thyself. 

I'm approaching 83 and work at doing my best every day; I don't feel best, if I didn't write a new blog page or two. I go to bed; but have to get up again to write something that pops-into my mind; So be mindful of what is going on around and let the people [anyone] Know!   The Internet was not available  70 years ago, so I slayed alone: Loneliness is Lethal.    

I hope this pleases you; until soon, Don.

A Guide To Post Traumatic Growth - Feature Documentary

Published on Feb 20, 2015
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a potentially devastating condition brought on by trauma. This can be from the stress of war, shootings, catastrophic burns, loss of a child, paralyzing accidents, athletic injuries, emotional trauma or financial ruin.

I directed this award-winning, feature-length documentary to try and help those suffering with PTSD find their way out. The film doesn't feature my advice. It is powerfully told by 10 survivors of horrific trauma and their families. Together, they list 17 guidelines back to health, happiness and a prosperous life. After escaping PTSD's brutal grip, they offer practical, crucial advice for millions of trauma victims, their families and friends worldwide. Learn more at
