What kind of world do you want?

This July 4, let’s make history. Join me on an adventure to transform America into the nation destiny calls us to be. Together, let’s create a much better world, a world where the rule of peace, prosperity and social justice helps protect and enhance our global civilization.

If you care about our country as deeply as I do, consider joining Life Media Group in a project we call Vision-2020. Its goal is to create media innovations using digital technology to unite people in a spirit of cooperation for the benefit of all humanity. This Independence Day, Vision-2020 honors our American heritage by giving the future the gift of a lasting legacy of freedom.

It’s time for us as a nation to stop fighting and start uniting. Once we do, we Americans can begin traveling together toward a destination of a much higher quality of life for all people. We’re at a point in our nation’s story where, if left unchecked, the growing cancer of our political and social dysfunction will lead to the death of democracy and end our republic’s experiment in governance. History shows us the cure. As we celebrate the founding of our nation with the pageantry of parades, the friendship of neighborhood barbecues, and the booming of fireworks in the night sky, let’s also remember our nation has faced in its past other dark days of discord and division. We survived those challenges once we replaced our social division with an ambitious vision, one powered by the America spirit.

This month marks the 50th anniversary of one such vision: the first manned moon landing. That adventure united for one brief, shining moment millions watching it on TV. The ambitions of Vision-2020 can serve as a similar adventure for America by uniting humanity with media.

Using technology we now possess, we can transform our news, marketing, education and arts and entertainment to empower people with the knowledge and skills needed to solve the very real challenges threatening human existence.

We invite all the candidates now seeking the White House to support the goals of Vision-2020. These goals, no doubt, for many Americans will seem bold in their ambition. So did the goal of landing men on the moon. With technology connecting all humanity for the first time in history, we can use media tools to make the vision a reality.

What kind of world do you want? Humanity’s future awaits your answer.

We will perish by following our present path of political dysfunction. Or we can prosper by following a new road of hope for humanity. Vision-2020 provides a roadmap for a journey to a better world you and your children may enjoy in the future if it succeeds to ignite enough people’s imagination to participate. If you choose to take part in an adventure to transform America into the nation destiny has called us to be, visit We launch the vision July 4.

Be a hero for humanity. Join the team and transform the world.
