Luck And Support Equal Opportunity

Luck And Support Equal Opportunity

Once upon a time, optimism was a lifestyle.   Those were the young days from then  came reality called maturity.  Optimism now dying embers, still recognized luck as crucial to successful outcomes including life, work, family, children and everything else.

Once upon a time, I believed luck was opportunity meeting preparedness.

Luck = Opportunity + Preparedness

Today I still do and add support. Why support? Support is a presumed constant—it is hardwired in our brains. To apply the equation universally, Support is pivotal to Luck. The constant of support is defined by humane details.


What is the support? Support is one’s supporting environment with each environment and person having varying degrees of influence. Support includes both external and internal ( physiologic ) environments.  Both environments determine one’s identity, attitudes and  outcomes in life.

Internal environments include genetic code, body physiology and the soul.

By contrast, external environment is everything else.

Environments with Ecosystems based on cultural perceptions of  access, equity and justice form the basis of healthy and productive environments. Many companies and government routinely state the above as missions or obligations yet have no appropriate metric to quantitatively and qualitatively measure or track:  access, equity and justice. A database can accomplish such tasks with ease

Equity, Access and Justice  are crucial in the fields of  law enforcement,  justice and policy.    Individual rights are violated daily without knowledge  and atrocities are ignored daily without thought–whether it is because the world is smaller and information faster does not matter.  Whether society is prepared or not, the data is coming in as people share, do we ignore the suffering of our own citizens? And do we continue to tolerate corruption and fraud as costs of doing business.

Breast cancer survivors shared stories increased awareness  within communities  and gained nationwide support.  Today breast cancer is no longer a stigma of deformity or death.

I wish to launch a kickstarter campaign to create a relational database that combines data with context.     This is for the United States Citizens Justice Database.

Please read and contribute as you can by stating your ability, potential contribution and expectations.    You are also welcome to take the idea and make it your own.

Once again, thank you  for your support and luck.

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. The first step isn’t always the biggest. When your young faith in the unknown has so many possibilities and rewards. The bumps, bruises and tears are triumphs, for fear is just another step away.

    1. I do not have high expectations. I asked a few people to help with feedback but no response.

      Hopefully, someone with power or skill will take the idea and develop he database. I have ideas that I can’t bring to fruition, why not share it with others and let them develop the ideas? No gimmicks.

      Without feedback, I will not do the Kickstarter. If I can’t convince friendly faces to provide feedback how can I expect strangers to dig into their pockets when they don’t know me..

      Hey, sometimes I feel frustrated and then I remember I am invisible and irrelevant. I accept my second-class powerless status in society. Expectation levels are low with my low intelligence. I need white people to be the faces of the campaign for it to be successful.
