Today is the first broadcast of Walking The Kingdom. This 30 minute program will air weekly for the next nine (plus) months, to chronicle the escapades of Steven Cook in support of the dream of drug educator and counselor Peter Dwan, to reach our children before the drug pushers do! We will also be presenting some of Pete’s wisdom on the subject that will enlighten you parents as to what you can do to make a difference with your own children.
Please listen to the premier of this weekly show at the bottom of this article …
Presented by Show host and TLB founder: Roger Landry (TLB)
Every once in a great while an individual steps out from the crowd to be recognized for endeavors far beyond what most consider normal … or even doable. They willingly sacrifice their time, effort and endurance for a cause they believe in so deeply in, that doing the (nearly) impossible becomes an attainable goal. Steve Cook is just such an individual, and his cause is of vital importance … Our Children!
About Walking the Kingdom
In the UK, the Liberty Beacon’s very own Steve Cook is into the undertaking of a lifetime: a 4000+ mile walk of the entire British coast.
Steve is a published author and Senior Admin of TLB’s UK website Go Forward Together and, in what can best be described as a drastic departure from his usual pursuits as a writer, starting in May this year he will hike … alone … the entire coast of England, Scotland and Wales … passing through over a thousand coastal towns and villages over a period of about nine months.
When Steve completes his mega-hike at the end of this year (or early 2016 depending on how things go) we believe he will – at the age of 63 and a granddad – be the oldest man ever to have done something fewer people have achieved than have walked on the surface of the Moon.
This is destined to become a major publicity event for a needed cause, with TLB promoting it internationally. We are proud to be associated with, and promote this massive undertaking. Not merely because Steve is one of our own, but because of the cause for which he is taking action and putting himself through such a test of endurance.
So why on Earth (we hear you ask) would a man put himself through so much, what cause could inspire such an effort?
We happen to believe, along with Steve, that it is a cause well worth extraordinary effort … If we wish to take positive action to build a new and better world.
Although Steve happens to be based in the UK and this event will be taking place there, its importance extends beyond the bounds of one country and embraces the entire global community. It concerns the futures of our children who will become tomorrow’s adults and in whose health, soundness of mind and happiness we all have a vested interest, and a moral duty to foster.
Our children are our most valuable resource and our very future!
So what is the cause? What does he intend to achieve?
Drugs are a blight on humanity with special emphasis on our vulnerable and easily influenced children and young adults. Bringing awareness of the chronic dangers associated with drug use to them at an early and impressionable age is vital to these intelligent souls making sound decisions that will seriously influence their entire futures. Steve hopes to bring this subject forward in their minds and that of their parents in a massive and global fashion.
Could there be a more noble cause ???
Here is some amplifying information concerning the two outstanding gentlemen involved in this project
Pete Dwan, Dedicated Drug Counselor/Educator
Steve Cook, The man who will “Walk The Kingdom” to focus attention on the subject.
Kicking off on May 1st, TLB’s very own Steve Cook has embarked upon a 4,000+ mile hike of the coast of mainland Britain. Embracing England, Scotland and Wales. This 63-year-old grandad’s walk will take him through over a thousand coastal town and villages over a period of nine months.
Day 4 video update …
His purpose in putting himself through such a test of endurance is to raise awareness and support for the work of drug education crusader Peter Dwan, who has devoted his life to reaching the kids before the dealers do, with the truth about drugs.
Drugs rob the individual of his joy and vitality and society of its brightest minds, debilitating and dumbing down its future leaders and entrepreneurs, artists and innovators and a drugs epidemic allowed to run riot wreaks havoc upon humanity’s communities.
Threats and punishment have done little to reverse the epidemic, while addicts are being created at a faster rate than we can build drug rehab facilities to get them off drugs again. The solution is an effective drug education approach exemplified by Peter’s work in schools across the UK and other countries, empowering children to make pro-survival choices when they encounter the peer pressures, and sly persuasions of drug peddlers that are inevitable in a drug-riddled society.
It is this that has inspired me to undertake this epic hike and the belief that, armed with an effective educational approach and working shoulder-to-shoulder as a community, we The People can do something about drugs and we can do right by our children.
Over the last 20yrs the drug problem across the planet has almost spiraled out of control . When you have an program put forward by a government called harm minimization, where you are told kids are going to use drugs, no matter what we do, so tell them safe ways to take it and the biggest success is that users can have clean needles, you know we are in trouble. To say that certain quarters aren’t working towards a drugged society, which is an easily controlled society and that there isn’t huge vested interest is naive.
There is a solution …
It is through educating our young people with the True facts about drugs. Undercutting all the bull that is promoted through all the different mediums we are showered with today.
Empowering our children with the truth will not only change the future generations but is an absolute necessity if we are to leave a legacy nothing short of chaos.
Our children are our future and they are intelligent, bright and full of élan vital. Let’s help them flourish into fully awake adults and change the path that we are on.
