Thankfully, America Provides a Great Opportunity, Love and Respect for All of Its People

As each American continues to work their way through this pandemic recovery period, there remains many things to be grateful for in America. 

Thankfully, the wonderful truth stands - as to why millions of women and men of all ethnic backgrounds worldwide want to come to America for a chance at building their best possible life.

The Freedom for every American to create an incredible life to its full potential holds firm.

Humbly, America is the most prosperous and generous country in the history of the world, and our amazing nation is not even 250-years old yet. Overall, our story is simply remarkable.

America helps its own citizens and greatly assists a huge number of countries around the globe. 

How and why?

America's enlightened structure and brilliant but imperfect approach to governance enables each citizen the opportunity to explore, improve and achieve their true and inherent future-self. 

On July 4th, 1776 when the United States of America was born after having defeated years of brutal tyranny lorded over it from abroad, America became the flashing light of hope for all of humanity worldwide craving three things: a great opportunity, love and respect.

But, how can a country love a person?

America is not flawless and it never will be. But America is always correcting its mistakes, innovating and improving on a real-time basis. America's heartbeat is supported by its amazing people, the most diverse and dynamic population in the history of the world.

Daily, America's integrated system provides liberty-based love for its citizens by allowing all women and men an equal chance to manifest a fantastic life. There are no guarantees of any person achieving success, but every American has the equal right to go for their dreams.

America unleashes the brimming potential for every woman and man in the nation.

As to the third point that each American desires...respect; how does America give its respect to the multitude of women and men hailing from all parts of the world?

By design - in the founding Charters of Freedom. America's wise foundation of freedom defends individual respect for each of its citizens. 

To visit the rotunda in Washington, D.C., is a breathtaking and deeply emotional experience. To witness first-hand the stunning documents stating that every person is valuable and equal in America.

Fortunately for every American, we are all guaranteed three things:

A Great Opportunity, Love and Respect. 

God Bless America.

Freedom of Religion for Every American is Guaranteed. Thank God.


“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peacefully assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Fortunately for every American, the 1st Amendment in the United States Constitution guarantees and protects that right for each of us - Freedom of Religion. 

Conversely, each American has the right to not believe in God as well.

As freedom-loving Americans, it’s mind blowing to imagine not having the God-given right to peacefully believe in our sacred, chosen religion or not.

In America, we are all equal, regardless of your religiously-held belief or not.

During these turbulent times, as hundreds of millions of Americans attempt to navigate their way through this COVID-19 pandemic recovery period, there are millions of Americans praying to God for a little bit of extra help.

That is their right, and we should always protect it for every American.

Every American is equal, and we always will be, thank God.

The Road to Success is Unpaved and it's Important to Remain Flexible and Positive

Failure stinks, and it's the opposite of what we strive to achieve. 

As Americans, we work so hard to be successful but the Road to Success is not smoothly paved and replete with perfectly-placed road signs informing us what to do, exactly where to go or how to get there.

Becoming successful is not guaranteed, but in America each of us has the opportunity to go for our dreams. Every American, women and men, of any race or belief has the chance to build the life they want. That is our God-given right as Americans, for each and every one of us.

Far more often than not, as each American attempts to build a successful and fulfilling life, they trip, fall or get nearly-crushed along the way to their success. And, given each American's unique set of life circumstances, sometimes a person abandons their select dream and decides to do something more realistic for them.

To be clear, there is no shame in that whatsoever. In fact, creating a good life is the very definition of a successful American. It's great.

However, when pursuing your one, true singular career choice that you deeply desire the most, then you have no other option but to adjust, adapt and learn from every available resource. As you trek up and down the unpredictable road to success, it will be fun, scary, bumpy, difficult, and heartbreaking.

But, don't operate in fear. 

Instead, remain aware, positive, humble and flexible. Things change big time beyond our control, but building your dream life is very attainable. Constructing the life that you truly want will be the hardest thing you ever do, and also the most rewarding.

If you enjoy the tough journey and the people you meet along the way, rest assured that the odds are in your favor to succeed. 

Remember...limits exist only in your mind. 

Go for it.

A Female Game Breaker in Professional American Tackle Football with Men? YES, it Will Happen...

EIGHTEEN-years ago in 2002, humbly, my first football-themed suspense novel was published and released, entitled, THE GAME BREAKER.

The Game Breaker is a dual-plot suspense novel (which you can download for FREE) on my blog.

The twin plot, features an exciting Female NCAA football superstar, TJ Woods, and a villainous, sinister United States Presidential candidate, Ferguson Marshall, a twisted and powerful man that will do anything to rule America. 

Without a doubt, TJ Woods is a Superstar in every regard. She is a Game Breaker.
YES it will happen in the future for Women, and for a variety of reasons:

1. World Class Female athletes are incredible and fun to watch, just like their male counterparts, respectfully

2. At the Wide Receiver position in NCAA football and at the Professional level, the Wide Receivers are generally more fluid, dynamic and athletic overall, nimble and able to run quick routes, while being versatile enough to burst on passing plays designed to connect at 40-yards or more downfield

3. More and more young women are playing tackle football in America and Worldwide. Furthermore, the advent of tackle football leagues for Women is more popular than ever before 

4. However...will the American football consumer (Women & Men) openly accept the First-Ever World Class FEMALE athlete to play Wide Receiver in professional football alongside her male colleagues?

Yes, they will! 

Overwhelmingly, Americans are about equality for women and men, on and off the field. America has the most-number of wildly successful Female entrepreneurs in the world, and the highest number of successful female business owners in the world.

Furthermore, the dominant majority of Americans (women and men) support equality for both sexes. By far, the vast number of Americans (of both sexes) support giving a fair shot for all parties in the hunt for success. No favoritism, just great competition, and may the best person win that day.

Rest assured that SHE is out there on the horizon, a Female Game Breaker working hard when nobody else is watching. She is lifting, running, sprinting and refining her skills. She has won before, and she has previously been defeated; but she is undeterred, and getting ready for her first shot at pro football competing alongside her outstanding male peers.

She will be ready when the time comes, and she is hoping and praying for a chance to compete...

About THE GAME BREAKER by Kurt Bryan:

In the history of the NCAA, no world-class female athlete has ever received a scholarship to play football. Never that is, until college football coach Kenny Brown discovers TJ Woods, a football superstar.

Unbeknownst to Kenny, however, his dream of making TJ a football heroine and marketing icon interfere with the sinister plans of presidential hopeful Ferguson Marshall. After dodging several attempts against his life, Kenny discovers Marshall's plot to kill him. 

Can Marshall be stopped? Can TJ's career be saved? Can Kenny stay alive for the next 24 hours? A real edge-of-the-seat thriller with an innovative sports twist.

Freedom of Speech for Every American is Fantastic and Protected for All of Us

Imagine for a moment, if you happened to live in another country (respectfully) where you did Not have the God-given civil right of Free Speech, as guaranteed and protected by the First Amendment in our sacred Constitution for every American. 

A few-hundred years ago in the 1700's, the sage and pesky, diminutive French enlightenment writer and worldly deep-thinker, Francois-Marie Arouet (Voltaire) famously understood the vital importance of every individual's opinion, when he wrote:

Voltaire's incredible mind and ability to immerse himself in the just cause of individual liberty enabled him to become a world-class philosopher. Fortunately for us, Voltaire penned a mountainous stack of important writings that dwarf the valiant output from those of us today that endeavor to write.

If you ever find yourself craving really good intellectual stimulation, then I humbly recommend reading some of the well-written biographies about Voltaire's life. They can be revelatory and life-changing.

Voltaire portrait below...

Likewise, when America was born on July 4th, 1776, our imperfectly-brilliant Founders understood the core ingredient that would enable a virgin country like America to sprout, grow, prosper and continually develop long as Freedom of Speech was protected for every American. 

Bluntly, it is everything. Without Free Speech...we have nothing.

As free Americans, embedded in our national psyche, each of us has the protected right to peacefully express our opinion (unpopular or popular). It is unfathomable for anyone to pretend that their peacefully-done freedom of expression is actually more important than that of their fellow Americans.

Humanity = we are all equal. 

It is critically important for every American that wishes to peacefully utilize their civil right of Free Speech to properly do so. Regardless of your opinion (as ruled upon by the Supreme Court); what you have to say is protected, even if your fellow Americans do not agree with you. 

Whether or not your American brethren concur with your peacefully expressed perspective is irrelevant, because every American has the same protected rights throughout the USA.

We owe it to our fellow Americans to respect and protect each other's point of view, especially when their opinion is different from our own. Please let us never forget that we are all equal as Americans.

Thank God...

Staying Positive During the Comeback is Worth it for Us All

Until that wonderful day arrives in the future when we can joyfully crowd ourselves into jam-packed stadiums and arenas alongside thousands of other sports fans to watch our favorite teams compete and play a game - there is no doubt that things will be much different for us all.

As our fellow Americans nationwide continue to do their best while struggling during their own region's phased-in "comeback" from this pandemic, it's vital for those of us in the sports world to remain positive and respect each other's valuable point of view.

Living our lives as safely as possible during this comeback period is the ultimate balancing act for each of us.

Yes, hope is on the horizon, thank God. 

But, it's difficult to predict what the decision-makers that are leading the thousands of women's and men's youth, high school, collegiate and professional sports leagues are actually going to decide.

*Furthermore, keep in mind that Many of those decision-makers serving on their respective Interscholastic Sports Boards in each state or section, are actual Mother's and Father's that have their own children participating in amateur athletics within their region.

It appears there will not be one "blanket decision" covering all leagues at every level nationwide. There seems to be too many variables and diverse regions in our beautiful country throughout all 50 states for that to occur. 

To play the games or not to play = in the safest possible way? 

That is the question...Yes or no?

IF our women's and men's live sporting events reboot in the next few months with "altered" pregame parties and tailgating, and allowing X amount of fans (TBD) in the stands while they're adhering to safety measures but cheering their teams on; then yes, there will be millions of happy Americans.

However, there will be a significant contingent of Americans that are not supportive of it.

Each point of view is valid and should always be respected.  

However, if every one of the women's and men's youth to professional sports leagues in America gets completely shut down until the pandemic ends or a vaccine is found, then there will be millions of Americans very unhappy and depressed about it. 

Conversely, there will be millions of Americans relieved about a total shutdown of women's and men's sports at all levels, until the pandemic is vanquished or a cure is found.

Once again, both points of view are valid.

It is true that hope springs eternal. 

And, it's critically important for us to value and respect each other's point of view; especially given the deeply personal health decisions each of us has to make about our own safety, as every American begins to wade cautiously into the murky and unparalleled comeback period before us.  

As millions of Americans start to emerge from this pandemic - understandably more tentative and unsure about what will happen to them, while also remaining individually-brave and forever humbled by the terrible COVID-19 scourge, we should remember that we are unbeatable - if we stand together as a united American team. 

It's in our nation's best interest to love and respect all of our fellow Americans, and to appreciate their individual points of view. By doing so, it will help us pull through this brutal and tragic event together and we will become stronger than before. 

After we work our way through this awful pandemic-period in our nation's history, the impending future of America will be even brighter and more sparkling for every American. 

The future always arrives and staying positive during this comeback period is worth it for us all...
