Eleanor, the protagonist of the novel, volunteers to drive an ambulance in France during WWI because she wants to make a difference. However, her wartime experiences are so horrific that she doesn’t want to talk about them. She has PTSD. One of the results of her not talking about her war is that her son enlists to fight in WWII.
 
The presentation is about 15 years of trying to make a difference by working to get out this anti-war story, from inspiration to winning a national book award.

Vision - A world where individuals with chronic pain receive integrated care focused on wellness rather than drugs, and those with addiction have easy access to compassionate evidence-based treatment.

Mission - To heighten awareness of the disease of addiction as it releates to the physical and emotional burdens of chronic pain and to improve the associated care process.

BRIEF INFO

When Rob learned that kids were taking extra food at school on Fridays so that they could eat over the weekend, fighting child hunger became Rob’s mission. As one of the founders of The Sheridan Story, Rob has been in a leadership role with the organization since it first began operating in 2010.

Rob has been a key player in the growth of The Sheridan Story, leading the organization's expansion from a one-school program in 2013 into a multi-school network of weekend food programs operating in numerous schools throughout the Twin Cities.

Rob's professional background includes experience in international and domestic logistics. Rob has worked with several Fortune-500 companies to improve their worldwide supply chain. Rob also has experience in volunteer management and training, non-profit management and development, and operational leadership in non-profit settings. Rob and his wife, Claire (a Memphis gal who has fallen in love with Minnesota), have been married since January 2008. They live with their son Amos and daughter Mabel in Arden Hills.

From Eric:  
 
To the board: I am a speaker, author and comedian who has spoken in all 50 states and addressed various clubs from coast to coast. I am contacting Minnesota clubs for consideration as a speaker since I will be returning to Minnesota in April of 2018. I have a ton of references I can send you in addition to my bio and credentials. I also do a lot of political speaking but my remarks to Rotary and Kiwanis clubs are absolutely non-partisan in keeping with the spirit of your organization. God bless always, Eric Golub 310-709-3245.  blacktygrrrr@earthlink.net
