737558-antoinette-tuffby now everyone has heard the 911 call of Ms. Antoinette Tuff as she bravely talked a mentally unstable man from murdering hundreds of innocent children.  

when i heard the call, i thought this woman sounds like an angel.  i couldn’t believe anyone without training would remain that calm and be SO LOVING.  yesterday i saw her interview on Anderson Cooper 360 and now I am convinced; she IS a walking, breathing example of sainthood.  

She is not just a hero to those children and their families; she’s a hero to us all. She’s a hero because of her example of humility by sharing her pain and secrets with not only a stranger but someone who wanted to kill her.   She’s a hero because of her deep faith that everything was going to be okay not just for herself but the man with the gun.   She’s a hero because her focus the entire Anderson Cooper interview was on others.   All of this from a woman who had been through so many trials in her own life. She could have easily been angry at life.   Her strength to turn her life and attitude into positive is purely extraordinary.    

Antoinette Tuff is my role model of what a real woman looks like.  Yes she is beautiful on the outside but its’ her character and heart that are stunningly gorgeous.  We salute and thank you Ms.Tuff.

dr dyson booki‘m so excited about the release of the new book, An Apple A Day Keeps The Drama Away, by Dr. Jeri Dyson.

Dr. Dyson is a teen doc and internationally recognized for her work.

full disclosure- I have know Dr. Dyson for years and have been a fan of hers from day one.   she is super smart.   xavier med school grad and trained in adolescent medicine at john’s hopkins; so she knows her stuff!  

Dr. Dyson and i have worked together with the BET Rap It Up Campaign of which she is the medical advisor.   i could go on and on about her accomplishments.

BUT the most important thing about Dr. Dyson is her commitment and passion for helping people be their best and most healthy selves.

she currently practices medicine, so she is in the know about what’s happening with today’s youth.  in fact her radio show GET IN THE KNOW with Dr. Jeri Dyson is followed my many youth looking for advice.  Dr. Dyson realized others could use the advice she offers in her practice and with her show, so she wrote this book.  here’s what Dr. Dyson had to say about her book, An Apple A Day Keeps The Drama Away.

“In a world full of ‘reality’ shows we are being bombarded with TV DRAMA.  Our voyeristic addiction to fist fights, backbiting, name calling and sex scandals has landed some people in some unfavorable positions in the real world.   Is this art imitating life or life imitating art?  It’s good tv but bad reality.  Life is more than yanking weaves, casual sex, throwing drinks and having lunch. My desire is that this book will help people learn how to maximize their reality”

written in her unique keep it simple and fun style, An Apple A Day Keeps The Drama Away, is a great read. it’s spiritually based with bite sized nuggets that readers will love.  

i think this book is especially good for young women who are just going off to college or newly on their own.  the gems in the book will start you off on the right footing.

pick up a copy today…doctor’s orders!
