Why Congressman Jason Lewis Wrote Political Book 'Party Animal'
"What brought you to write the book and what are you trying to communicate in? Well, you're on judiciary, ranking members. So you know all about how we weaponize the bottles of the bureaucracy. And that hit me between the eyes in the 115th. I started thinking about this. And then just the craziness that was happening with the Trump, starting with the inauguration, and you were talking about people protesting. I had protesters on my front lawn. You and I were being demagogue over the American healthcare act, which was a good piece of legislation. And I thought, this is getting out of control. And I'm afraid that if you let the left right history, you're never going to learn from. And that's what was happening already with CNN going after every Republican and it was getting out of hand. But I think the epiphany for me was, you know, if you're not on the intelligence committee, you don't get to see the Intel until they say, okay, members can come over and view this. And it was when we did that and trudged over to the capitol visitor center and looked at this stuff and all I remember Doug is sitting there going, is this all there is. Is this? And we were consumed for two years. It was thwarting our ability to move legislation. The media were Gaga over this line. Just absolute line. Trump is going to be indicted tomorrow. He's a Russian asset. Now there was a Trump Tower meeting. All of which proved to be a lie. And I thought, okay, I'm going to start taking a journal. And so I started writing a journal. And what happened was that started to continue through three campaign cycles, 16, 18, and 20. Well, then 20 came around, I'm the Senate nominee, and we are locked down except for a rioters in Minneapolis. The third precinct was broke was burnt to the ground, talking about destroying government property, right? And it was so orwellian, I continued with these journals, and so now, in 2021, at this all these journals and you know what it's like to write a book, you got to put it in readable fashion. So I found a cabin in the Minnesota northwoods and for a year and a half, I just hunkered down and wrote basically a history of how we got to the point where we'd weaponize the government on behalf of one party.

What happens if he's going to the internet whether it says naked always protect that. Always keep that in line in always protecting it. But if he has access to mission critical internal applications. Go ahead and immediately revoke that once. You have burned that user in identity. Whether that's you know you're paying octa you name it in your mileage will vary based off of the iep that you're using some of them like an octa right. The integrations are so tight that the the moment that you revoke access for jeff going into an application. It's immediately picked up versus like injury. Active directory is synchronize. Like every fifteen minutes before five minutes or on demand but spelling that out for customers like listen. This is what you're gonna do. Let's operationalize this. In that way.

We see things you know. Expand boxing and and dm's all kinds of exotic ways there to protect the data. That's no longer motion and it's at rest on a device. I think that's part of the challenge.

"As a service model and i think we've seen a lot of organizations that have expressed a desire to move away from on premise type solutions right and even if that on premise really means virtualization. They wanna go to something as a service. So that's kind of what i was thinking is. Maybe we can kind of talk about. What have you seen from your perspective when it comes to as a service model so as this model started catching a lot of momentum past five six years and then i was working at on stunned young as a partner so the actually decided to build the entire cycle security as a service model and the reason for building up as a service model was because it actually cuts down the time to deploy the solution. The time to value is one of the driver. End up traditional Gonna model will require you to buy the tool unit to buy the infrastructure deployed and the amount of time it takes for any large organization like good when cycle etcetera at to be able to deploy test and then roll it out. All of that can be cut short. Okay because you have the best solution available in this model but apart from that there are other reasons. I get no mention which are very prominent which are bribing this as responding. The first one is Very easy upgrade on maintenance so in identity and access management you might remember that Deploying opportu club the product is just starting off your germany very soon find the product to will come up with the next person and then upgrading from the orders into the new zealand is a full blown project.

The sass model or as a service model actually takes this. Mitchell wrote up vendor as a vendor. We can upgrade and building the new new feature functionality without You know breaking the entire continuum of integrated application onto the system not just the worst operational costs but also some of those implementation fellow you can award and also that you know the team and the talent which is required to upgrade the system. All that is you know. Kind of you can get rid of. And then the second most important factor which is diving as model adoption.

Especially when you look at where you and i wear in twenty nineteen and before we got the buying that we god how much of a hurdle right we had to get through what we dictator at. How much easier it got once. We got the business that line and say you know this makes sense. Let's do it. We see that they saw value without it without collaborating to that expectant being transparent with the business i the identity programs will fail. I think they're one of the most crucial things to build a sustainable program that people also adopted like which is huge because he designed something everyone say. Hey the socks. We don't want him to rip it out in a year or two years and that happens i think having that later transparency of those honest conversations in collaborating with the business and realistically showing them. What your vision is seem to hate it. Getting back up on feedback is the most healthy bank. You can do tach both Program i think this is an opportunity to leverage relationships. Right part of part of being a good. I am program manager or team. Member is making relationships with the business with counterparts You know building trust with those organizations and with your own team that when you say something's going to get done it's gonna get done right and that you're not going to be someone out there that's hanging so i think that's i think that's an important part too is is the relationship aspect of it and being able to leverage. Hopefully things that you've built up and sometimes a little bit tougher. If if you're new to the organization you're walking in you're going to have to basically start from zero or if you've been there for a while you might have our relationships you might have some maybe not so great relationships because previous projects might not have gone as well but it's okay to get smarter. It's okay to get better. So i think that's an area that that is also kind of ripe for exploiting you know where it makes appropriate I know you've been run a little bit long here. But i want to make sure that we have time to kind of give kind of last thoughts or finals for a close it out for this week bryan wants to let us know is. There's anything that you think that you can add to the conversation that people kinda chew on out there. I mean being a identity Professionals i think we all understand the importance of this this space But not everyone else quite understands that And then sometimes we we were under that guise of information security as a whole and everyone's tired of hearing the fear uncertainty and doubt factor So we have to communicate clearly and and don't forget to accent the benefits that were working towards that this is. This is the help everyone on both sides of this coin. Not just you know. We're doing it for us and you guys have choice. So yeah communication. You can never can never talk too much about. Fostering good communication like that. How about you pierce. I completely agree with brad. Brian said it's just today. We're empowering business. I think when you take your first. It course when you read your first it book you'll read it. It's about empowering end users and for a lot of work we do. That's the business at understanding how we can help them. Leverage them but also protect them from all the bad things that make the front headlines. That's the bouncing ad that we will continue and hopefully we can get to a point where everyone will see. Oh hey i am. Projects actually make my life easier simple examples to remember. I don't need to request rolls. Oh compliance all system generated no more excel spreadsheets. So having. brian likes that example. The best it correlates advantage to all that umbrella at take as we go forward. It's important not to lose sight of that game. How about yourself last thoughts here before we close out from the week last thoughts. I know. Brian isn't huge vendor san. I'm going to ask everybody to go around the room and and say which evanger they would like to be. I'll start with door I think kicking ass with a hammer. We'd be pretty cool and Longest share myself. So i'm going to door. What about you brian. I'm not so lofty to consider myself a god. So i'll just stick with captain america. Now i always like to captain america's very simple approach to life and how he always seems to get things done so i would go the winter soldier. Man i with becky barnes. Nothing bryant psychic. Although i know rides thinks about that statement i love. I love love. Love duckie story is different dimensions. This character us fan of. I thought you would have picked wanda now. Honestly i was debating that the scarlet witch is is all powerful. You know jim. This might be one of the best questions. I think it's been asking this show. And of course has nothing to do with. I am. I'm going to have to go with iron men because i am a huge gadget freak. So i think having all the toys and whistles and you know things like that would probably be pretty appealing. Plus you know you can say you're the guy who beat thanos which that's not bad question. Jim thank you. Thank your and hey last thing for me. Is everybody as i always do. Open to connecting our lincoln so please myself the connections and java connection pearson. Brian are you guys open to connections on link denver listeners. Yes sure great well with that.

"So i try to a load or or prepare people to know that there's a lot of heavy lifting involved with this app upfront. But after we get all of these permanent established than things become much easier things will flow. You'll actually realize that the tribunal of this environment but it's just an easy plug and play and you're done so you know working with the business making sure they understand what our goals are What's in that goal. Should be to make their lives easier ultimately because when their life is easier my life is easier But getting the information you need in order to truly deploy Their application or their system in the tool and not have to go back multiple times to get extra information that they just didn't think was important so I always put that on both of our shoulders. That will i may not have communicated well enough that we need everything. You know But then sometimes they we. We've learned a few hard lessons where some people are very protective of their systems. And they're afraid to tell you everything Because i don't know what you're really gonna do so you've got to try to develop those relationships I've also learned. Sometimes those are not handled. Well over email. You've got literally get in that meeting and and talk with them. I think probably a lot of people have these Relationships where the email exchanges are very tursun and almost combative and yet you get in a meeting and everyone so happy to eggs each other and and more than happy to help so you know you try and leverage what you can to get the job done. It's hard to convey tone in an email right. I mean think emoticons may have helped I'm a big fan of animated gifts and things like that to carry on conversations. But yeah i think it's important to make sure that you recognize time is a value for people said a very well bryan as i think is not you know people are busy. You're not the only one has things that they get done right. They're not at your beck and call typically so you got to be smart with that time Do you ever come across issues when it comes to business processes and then sometimes how that might affect configuration in product versus customization. Which might you know. Take you down a rabbit hole. That maybe don't wanna go down to from a technical perspective all the time as i alluded to earlier. It's it's amazing when you start digging these Trenches and you know trying to lay your foundation that the people you thought new. The systems don't know the systems so you'll start developing process and based on all your information it should be simple. Abc in you're done and then Somewhere along the way. There's a right hand turn. That happens that you weren't expecting and now there's a whole new group involved in this process that you thought was a single source. So you've you know you try to leverage Okay what what are you know. And how does that flow into this and does it. does it flow from anything else. Are there's this does your effort impact other things too. So maybe you can get a benefit by all of these pieces together to to Put in your quiver for later. Use but Yeah business processes are never as simple and quick and easy as you might think they will be gave a run into any challenges from ownership perspective. I think this concept of business owning the data is sometimes foreign to some of the clients that that we saw the we worked with in the past and know it's not. It's not hard best rule but there's a lot of times where the business make kind of toss things over the it wall and say well you figure it out You know do you know what are some of the challenges seen around that in some ways that you approached it you know the usual access management Will don't you know everything you know. Can't you decide it's like well. No we're not here to make the decisions based on our feelings of the day. We have hard and fast rules and parameters that we use And that that's always shown Sometimes when we're talking to these business owners and we'll ask them some of those. You know a technical questions. And they'll look at us with the blank stare and i'll in tell me basically Back with you on that one so then you can maybe depends on the person you can let them go do their leg work or more appropriately. You probably should say well. Let's go find that person to talk to them together because you know it's better to get that information firsthand rather than have someone translated to unit completely wrong by the time you get so it's a trust but verify. Guess is a good approach. I think ownership can be a scary thing especially if you don't really know what you're signing up for and there might be a hesitancy right to say okay y'all on it and only the brave. We'll go there without doing their due. Diligence pierce what are of your thoughts when it comes to challenges that i am program might get from the business. I think brian ivanhoe does mailo close to home. But from the work that we've been doing right. A lot of the challenges all seem to be level setting resource low setting expectations than resource bad with and understanding that. Hey and i am. Project is not an assessment right. It's not gonna be done. It's not gonna be fixed within two days or three days. And i am implementation. I am project. It's there's a lot of complexity a lot of layers and we need adequate time and investment. And it's a heavy lift up front but the reward is there than of the tunnel. And i believe that most people when they get pulled in for request right everyone has day job and everyone has stuff to have to do a lot of times these projects coming out and people say oh. That's great. let me go do them. And then they say oh. I'm sick of doing at. It's very because their stuff is piling on from their day job and i think balancing that out and understanding that look yet the first few weeks is not going to be easy and there's a lot of work to do a lot of discussion and lot of challenging the nor right that's identity seems to becoming an heading towards to as it innovates but having that gap of understanding constraints understanding. Hey let's all go. Let's lift this. Lift this giant boulder up at once. We the once we lifted it will be a huge sigh of relief for the program overall. I think that's been the main focus that i personally have seen for several number of years and it's been very consistent and it's harder it's a harder problem to fix that. Most people realize it's funny. Is the boulder analogy i. I think of the boulder getting picked up and they think okay. What are all the things that are crawling underneath that that we didn't. I'm curious. you know pierce your thoughts and then back to. Brian and we'll go to gym is. There's an expectation. I think that you know when you come into an organization whether it's consulting or as an im program manager or just any part of the im chain is that you're going to have answers and you're gonna have them right away and you're going to know everything and how to solve every single problem. I i don't think that's realistic expectations. And i'm curious as to you know my my thought process is when we're when we're talking with folks around a It's okay we're gonna start putting questions out there and we may not have the answers or they may not be ready with a parent but that's okay right. We need to start understanding what we don't understand to be able to fix those types of things. And i'm curious if that's something that you guys have seen as well and your experiences maybe pierce will start with you go. Brian is so. I'll put it this way. I don't think janowski and the reason. I'm saying that is if you look at the questions and the landscape and if you remember the thing earlier was that identity specifically such a unique beast because it's in the heart of so much that the business does without even realizing that it is and the back end. It's one of those things where having identity be at the position is people expect you to know. Hey how does. Sap work caught a service now work. How does the are hot as the aarp were us all of this plant. How does it play in identity and very rarely can one person actually answer all that they might be able to answer that have very high level but doing deeper.

But that's just me all right so you know you've been super johnson your time. I do want to talk a little bit about this. Identity management day that we can of cheese at the top of the show. I mentioned that it's april thirteenth. The second tuesday april. It is a brand new thing. So if you don't feel like you missed out. Last year is something that has been started by the identity defying a security alliance along with some help from the national cyber security alliance as well. I think this is probably breaking news. It wasn't sure if you're aware of it. Rob but Yeah there's there's a identity management day april thirteenth thoughts. Does that mean. We have to sign in more times that day. What do we do to celebrate that day. Well we've talked about maybe doing a cake in our last episode I think there's a lot of different ways people get involved. There are a few different things that you can do. You can go to identity management day dot org. They have a bank brand spanking new website. Where you can do things like nominee in evangelist of the year or maybe rate a podcast of the year and the im space and i think that would be. You know something that people might be interested in You could do not like an orgy of the year. I know they're looking for content as well for blogging around identity management. And you know maybe doing blog or some sort of video or audio type thing that you know. They're looking to kind of help. Highlight the need for. I m You know maybe that's something that You know people might be interested in go. Check that out any thoughts on being in an evangelist of the year for a friend from an. Im perspective that's fantastic. I i don't think i get to to win that. I don't think i've been a good enough evangelist. But i do think that you know we do. Need these days to to get people to think about this. Kind of behind the scenes the pipes in the walls authentication is is critical for our success. We want to make sure that we're getting better. So i appreciate them putting this together eject jumped last week. We celebrated national pancake day. I think a basic question. Why isn't there an identity management day right another risk by april thirteenth You know. I think we're we're we're trying to figure out. What does that look like for us to show perspective on. How can we helped kind of celebrate that you know. It's it's always great to get recognition. I think the more people that are aware of identity and how important places security you know. I would argue. That identity is at the center in chimps when it comes to security and being able to to know what you're trying to protect so you know i i fully support it jim. I think you know you do too absolutely You know. I think what you're saying rates..

"You know we gotta go do a little bit more intelligence gathering and you know determining kind of what attacks could we throw at this thing than we were staying in. The on prem would imagine that open source intelligence or oh since i think it's typically called right is something that is of great value when you're trying to approach something where you don't have really a good knowledge of how something works It sounds like that's that's the way i'm thinking. Yeah yeah no is exactly right Osen one of. I think the most interesting parts of pen testing to learning what is out there publicly available We also have Access to a dark web provider and so part of reconnaissance that we're doing you know in line with oshima's were searching dark web for information. What kind of credentials compromise credentials out there that we might be able to leverage problems. Ever gonna go away with people reusing passwords. But when you have that. This is why it's so important to not reuse passwords is. Because you know it's it's possible that that username password combination has already been compromised is available on the dark web and then we can simply lift sat out of there and use the same information to gain access to the corporate network s seen a lot of products recently tout their ability to have access to compromise passwords right. In as part of the products they can either flagged user or prompted the change of password or whatever may be which to be irritating for the end user. I'm sorry your email address and password apparently already out for sale and it's probably dirt cheap. That's right. I have to imagine that the entire pen testing community has some level of competition around it. How competitive is it. Maybe even internally but compared with other organizations where you is there a a cool factor for being able to break something or to discover something How is your team approach. That totally so..

"God. The only way that mary could have ever dealt with her son going off at thirty years old she understood that he had this mission he had to fulfil a mission that there she was at the foot of the cross watching her son die for no other reason than out of love. Aw aw the fact that this celebration of the feast of the holy family. Oh jesus mary. And joseph comes. During the christmas season is an opportunity that we are given as we come to the close of another year a difficult year a challenging year. Whatever one one wants to name this year but it's an opportunity. An opportunity for interior reconciliation. Because maybe we won't be able to reconcile with a loved one because they have gone onto god but we know that that connection continues. The reconciliation can occur but if someone is still here on this side of life than we have opportunity and we have the holy family jesus mary and joseph to assist us in strengthening our own families and maybe that will seem impossible but nothing is impossible for god thinking of what simeon when they brought the child to the temple. The child jesus any says now master may let your serving go and peace. According to your word for my eyes have seen your salvation which you prepared in sight of all the peoples late for revelation to the gentiles and glory for your people israel. This is our savior.

"Prepare for what they need to do. Kind of how life works every once in a while. We'll get caught unprepared blindsided. Things will happen we. We don't understand how what happened there. Maybe we try to blame somebody else and try to say well this this happened. This happened this happened. I think it's safe to say in many ways we were unprepared for the coming of a pandemic and we don't know what to do at times over time. We started to figure out what we do how we can do it when we could do it. But things seem to shift and change like shifting sands under us weird the john the baptist to help us to learn how to be prepared to call out in the desert. Do these different things. And sometimes that may seem like some people are saying that even now the different things that we could do that maybe some are not doing and that might frustrate people especially those who are prepared and are doing what needs to be done in faith we never know when the coming of the lord is going to happen whether it's coming at the end of time or our particular and our end of life lured is always trying to come into our lives. That's what john the baptist was trying to say. Prepare yourself because he's trying to come into your life. He wants to give you as we hear in the book of the prophet isaiah comfort. And we here in second. Peter is patient with us wants us to truly live in him but sometimes were running around doing different things trying to find all sorts of things that will somehow phil and can't we think they can fill. These are the things that we need to be prepared for repair for retirement. We need to be prepared to pay for an education. If if our child's going to college we need to be prepared for some situation that might come down the line. We make all these preparations. Are we prepared in faith for the counter with the lord not just simply at the end of our lives. What he's trying to come into our life. Every single day reaches out to us he calls out to us. He invites us into encounter with him. Maybe we're so busy preparing for other things that are not eternal. We don't hear him. we don't see him. We don't recognize him in the people who may be around us in the poor and the suffering and the struggling in the invitation to join with the community of faith im- worship of our god and to receive him in the eucharist. These are the things that are more eternal. These are the things we are called to prepare for so that we can live lives that are aligned with the lord and then the other things fall into place because we're not running around trying to repair last minute or trying to do things that we think will keep us prepared but instead keep ourselves fixed on him gives us comfort was patient with us and for who need to be prepared for whenever he may come into our lives prepared.

"It's never easy to say difficult things to people especially people we care for. When we have to say something difficult how do we go about it? Sometimes unfortunately, what's happening now is that we just attack the other person would just right out of the gate whether it's through tax or social media or whatever it might be. This might be somebody who's a a friend of a person we're very close to and why are we attacking them if they have a difference of opinion than than we do But what happens when we feel that we have been wronged that someone has sinned against stars. How do we go about that? Do we just simply attack the other person or do we go about it in the way that Jesus calls us to? He tells us and gives us a method on on how to go about it. If you're brother's sins against you go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. That's really not easy for us to do. We somehow want that that third party there. Sometimes, WE WANNA do it in a public way that humiliates person. This isn't the way of Christ. Go to that other person. One on one. And be able to say to that other person. This is the effect that this has on me not in an accusatory way. But a way that says, this is how this is affected me this fault of yours this sin of yours, how it has affected me. And then Jesus is now if the person doesn't listen. Then take one or two others along with you. But if so if the person does listen, you won the person over. But if not. Take a couple other people along with you sit down how often does this happen when people have addictions and an intervention needs to happen so that that people can see the fact that it's having on the family or among the friends or in the community wherever it might be. So that this way then others can assist not again in simply being accusatory, but in helping the person understand the effect that they're having. And then. If the person refuses listen that, tell the church. Now. This sometimes can be really difficult because while what do I do? Do I go and get the priest Deacon Somebody who works in the parish? Is this something I would do well sometimes that can be of help. The church is the Church's ministry can assist this other person in coming to understand but notice that there's a whole process here because then only then. Jesus says. If he refuses to listen even to the church, then treat him as you would a gentle or tax collector notice that right out of the gate it is it's one on one in private with a small group with the community of faith the church. And? It's only then. To, just walk away. That's what Jesus is saying. A gentile or tax collector. These were people that others stayed away from. In the Jewish community. But this is the a method. Jesus gives us to be able to be more discerning more measured have more of a way in which we're able to. Attract others, and then what happens when we offend what happens when we sin do we open ourselves? We open to hear that other person expressing the way that we may have offended another the way in which we are faults have caused difficulty in other people's lives. No one of us is perfect. None of us are perfect. We are all sinners. We're all in need of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are all in need of ongoing conversion to Christ and because of that that voice sticking come through that other person were through that community to speak to us can well be the voice of God and we St-. Need to listen to that voice. But also discern that maybe we're just being ganged up on. And to recognize how that may be. That's why this other method of Christ rather than all kind of going after a person. Really, in the private to talk with this other person at first and to express again, not accusatory way. But in a way that simply says, this is the effect that this has on me and is having on those around us but it all must be done in the context of prayer. Jesus says again, Amen I say to you if two of you agree on Earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly father for where two or three are gathered together in my name there am I in the midst of them. So when we're those two who are together Jesus is present. Present in that moment. He says that he promises that. We're not alone in that discussion that we might be having and working through that difficulty that we might be having Jesus is present in that moment. And we need to recognize that and ask. For even greater awareness of his presence in that moment. So that, then we can live in greater peace and unity with our brothers and sisters. The charity of Christ.

"Nobody looks for people to attack them. In fact, if anything Most people avoid being attacked. We find ways to work around and maybe we'll do different things in order to keep people happy or keep situations. Going well. Or maybe we're just living our lives and doing what we. Feel is necessary for our lives and we become attacked in some way. Sometimes people of faith experienced this. Only simply because of their faith and living out life in and through their faith. They're seen as somehow. not part of the norm or. are attack simply for that. Imagine being called. A dog. When you're trying to get your daughter healed. And yet, that's exactly what we hear. In the last ball. For the twentieth Sunday in ordinary time. Jesus calls the Canaanite woman. Comes asking for healing for her daughter. A dog. I can't do this for you I'm. Here for the people of Israel. And yet she perseveres. Even, the scraps. Dog Eats from the master's Steve. A. She perseveres cause of her faith. In the Lord. She continues. And she receives what she asks. Perseverance. Is Not just simply. Enduring something. Perseverance means that we are not in this alone our faith. Assist us in continuing on that even if we are having challenges outside or inside. You'll be having difficulties within our cells. In. Faith. because. Maybe we're not receiving the answer or maybe we. Are. Angry with God for some reason or another. This pandemic is going. So long where where is God the situation in our world? All of these things might anger and upset us or maybe it's something much closer because of. Sickness or financial situation or whatever it might be. We're called to persevere in faith even in the midst of those things where we think that the Lord is against us. But he's not. One sauce. To persevere in faith in him. Even when it's difficult, even when challenging and even we think God is against us. Our faith. Move. US through. Our faith will take us where we need to go. and that's deeper life in our Lord Jesus Christ. And that will mean at times that we're going to need to do and to say things that are challenging because they are. Out of our faith. They come as a result of of our reflection. On Two thousand years of human history. Since the time. Of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In. that. We have something to say to the world as people of faith. Not. Only something the say on more. So something to do. To, do as Jesus did. To be a healing presence in the world no matter who comes to us in need. Sometimes, there might be a reaction because why why should we assist this person or that person? But as Jesus taught his disciples. In his encounter with the Canaanite woman.

"Yes, I know. It's July. But something inside me has zoomed my heart back to the week before Christmas 2011 a usual night unusual drive home one without my seeking them. They popped into my view like a mob with a cause they crossed the street their numbers hard to ignore as following them a press pool of photographers worked to find their shot off their flashes further grabbing my attention as with every pulse of light distracting streaks of brightness bounced across my windshield whatever it is. I'm in I told myself as with a snap decision on my neck turned. I navigated back to the point of my first seeing them. It was only one city block that I circled 2 minutes at most but as I passed the spot of my first sighting them found the streets bare and empty. So I parked my car my investigative self kicked into gear. I had to know where to and how they vanished. Yes. The new Sherlock Holmes was dead. Beat and I was determined to figure out who had kidnapped the mass Gathering that had so intrigued me the air was still and quiet as by the side of my car. I stood curious survey the area for any clues or willing Witnesses and being the self-appointed investigator. I was I considered myself ready to smell out any reference of Foul Play. Then they ripped passed me off too shadowed suspects silence and moving fast as I assumed their membership in the disappearing gang. So as any self-respecting sleuth would do I latched onto their tail ten Pages behind them as without even looking at the signage or address of the building. They walked into I rushed through the same doors. They entered this is going to be epic. I convinced myself as I posture for a lot of mystery and Intrigue with sweat on my brow. I settled just inside the entryway scan the surroundings as I chested up for my next move then I was further carried for this month. More mob members brush my shoulders as they to sprinted toward what looked like the Hub of it all and it's like paste into the room. They went into I was blindsided with an unexpected upper cut off at the center of the hall stood Nicole love to its fullest. So apparent as all around her music was being performed by a list musicians while children of diverse ages off the room sharing hugs and kisses beautiful young and vibrant is the best way to describe Nicole yet. There was more to her than just external magnetism. She had an internal flame full of compassion the kind of person some might think that with her beauty and intelligence she could have been anywhere that evening but there she was directing a night of celebration at the modest little assisted living and Memory Care Center giving her all to share what she could to enrich the lives of the Aging forgotten and mentally challenged about 200 feeling individuals dead. I'm not talking about the residents only but the families and people who had chosen to do the same my skepticism of the evening redirected as she humbly told me how she lost her mother when her mother was in office old age how her mother lived in the retirement home and how her mother died of cancer how she was there the whole way and when her mom passed how she promised herself that she would never offer a senior citizen feel unloved or alone. The very reason why she had dedicated so much of her life to the nurturing and caretaking of the elderly. I watched her as she circulated bathroom. I stood again curious doing all that. I could to absorb her spirit as not one resident that she ignore in the blink of a moment it became powerfully apparent why I was pulled to meet her home and although the adventure was not as I had previously imagined. It was so very obvious to understand the draw that had first grabbed my attention an outcome. I had not expected to experience in my quest to find job. A lost Gathering. I want to travel the world. She told me but in revealing her dream, she grounded it with one most solid condition a consideration we could each bar when navigating our own wants needs and dreams that condition only if she could give back. And as to exactly what Nicole was giving back, well, I guess I can sum it up by sharing her point of view on the Aging she calls them her living angels so dear Nicole as you have inspired us, so to do we pass our prayers on to you and from us to you may all your dreams come true..
