Wetlands Survival Preparedness "Ancient Voices" (9408am)

For over 50 years (195x-2009), I've been seeking ALL-WinWin actionable distilled insights (thinkLets) that could be easily shared with next generation "Agile Leaders" to neutralize cumulative effects of Zero-Sum Game (C4I = Art of War) manifest destiny myths!

As a Praire Passage Pathfinder, I began by adapting prior "lessons learned" to help my daughters envision sustainable wellbeing (LIFE, Liberty and pursuit of happiness) ... I discovered that my "near peer" Kansas Supreme Court (KSC) Justice Bob-RL Gernon was pursuing a similar path with both his daughters upon my return to the Kaw Valley (2004).

What was the uncommon denominator we shared as KU B-School undergraduates and hyperactive collaborative members of the same Windmill Hill social fraternity?

So, I began to adapt "CyberCrime Fighting" social network analysis (memetic research skills) to help empower PREsponse Systems Thinking (Be Aware or Beware). The results of adapting MnSCU-iTeach 2002 "Blended Visual Learning" is our group decision support systems i4CQuest model that was inspired by this "Affirmation of INTERdependence"

"The world of strife shut out. The world of love shut in."
