St. Vincent’s Medical Center shadow of the cross crossing a wall during sunrise on November 2014 Thanksgiving Day. I had surgery to replace my 2007 ICD for a new one. Each morning from my hospital window I had this view. Thanking God for a second chance opportunity to share our SCA’s survivor story (www.lepervanche.com/heart). Learn CPR/AED, know where AEDs are located, and “Be Prepared To Save A Life”. #HealthyHearts (www.facebook.com/4healthyhearts)
TEDxBeaconStreet 2015 Adventure Catalysts are TEDx Organizers from many US states and countries. We came to Boston to participate in a Workshop that included visits to Google, MIT Media Lab and other innovative companies in Boston. During the weekend Adventure Catalysts volunteered in TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet and TEDxBeaconStreet. The objective is to create TEDx Adventures to bring them to our cities. We combined our Learning Adventures with TEDxFSCJ to create TED Ed Learning Adventures.
During TEDxBeaconStreet we joined efforts to support #EarthToParis initiative. #EarthToParis wants to impulse awareness about the Climate Change Summit #COP21Paris from November 30th to December 11th. At the same time we remembered #BostonStrong messages to support #ParisStrong and #BostonToParis. Our posters on stage show our commitment to act in our communities to support #Peace, #Love, and our #Environment. #IdeasInAction.

Our visit to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Park impacted us during the 23rd World Scout Jamboree. One day was enough to get impacted but more time is needed to appreciate all the monuments, gardens and experience the reconstruction of the city 70 years after the atomic bombings.

Coming soon to #DrJoseCampus. Another #GlobalLearningAdventures’ presentation. Our journey to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar, a city divided by a river and connected by a historic bridge. Two communities living in both sides of the city reconstructing their lives, city and country after a war.
We visited Bosnia and Herzegovina and went to Medjugorje and Mostar. We started on Italy and crossed Slovenia and Croatia before arriving to Medjugorje. We visited Mostar in a rainy day and we were able to visit downtown, a mosque, and a catholic church. We crossed the Old Bridge and talked to locals. We crossed the street that separated both sides during the was and we were able to see buildings with bullet holes. Our Mostar presentation explores post-conflict reconstruction, projects, businesses, and government.
I attended a presentation about history of Bosnian-Serbian relations by Dr. Andrew Holt. The frame of reference was the book “The Bosnia List” and part of FSCJ “The Authors’ Series”. It was great to learn about the history I was able to live during our visit to Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Scouting is more than meetings and camping. It is the best value-based outdoors, experiential educational method for youth leadership learning and for being prepared for life decision-making (@ScoutmasterJose). #bepreparedforlife.
