The Community Heroes Training Center!

Here’s the plan:

The Situation

The world needs heroes. Our community needs heroes. Fortunately, there are heroes among us. We have heroes defending our country. Heroes protect us from crime and respond to emergencies. Heroes help us stay healthy, and heal us when we are injured or ill. Parents and teachers are heroes, raising and training new heroes. Even children can be heroes. We can all be heroes. Let’s try to be the best we can be, and help others in every way we can. I have an idea that can help us better ourselves and help each other.

The Dream

I have been dreaming about places that would help each of us improve in every way: spiritually, mentally,  and physically.  These places would also connect us with organizations giving help to others. There are many centers in this country which provide parts of this plan, but I believe none have put them all together.

The Procedure

The tallest mountains are climbed with small steps. This is the first step. Things that are impossible for one person to do are easy if many join in. I am one, but you can join me.  We can become many. Even without a physical place, we can start doing small things. Working together, we can get more people to join us. With more people we can do more, until we reach the goal. Individuals, organizations, and businesses can contribute and participate in different ways, as in the story of “stone soup.”

The Start

I can now  provide educational materials and lessons for events and special sessions at existing facilities, such as schools, libraries, and senior centers. One of these may provide some space and time for regularly scheduled or even daily learning opportunities. Other people (maybe you?) may join me in offering materials and lessons.

With enough support, we might soon open a small center in an existing building, supplying as full a range of educational materials as space allows. It would also provide information about charitable organizations needing donations and volunteers, and requests for help from individuals. The physical training area can be added later, as it requires extra space. I imagine an alternative to gyms and sports, based on the “heroes” theme, with obstacle courses of increasing difficulty.

The Goal

The final stage is a completed center with separate areas dedicated to science, art, music, and other studies; spiritual guidance and growth; and a large physical training facility. People of all ages will be able to learn new things at their own pace, whenever they want. They will be directed to existing institutes and businesses dedicated to providing advanced training in specific areas. There will be information on ways to share what they have and to help others. Members will be directed to organizations serving the community, and encouraged to be cheerful contributors and volunteers. The center will attract visitors from outside the community and serve as a model for similar centers in other communities.

The Need

With your help, this can be more than just a dream. I am not in this to get rich or be the leader. I believe this will be a blessing to everyone. I’m looking for someone or several people to take the lead. Someone talented in organizing and leading people. Anyone with experience running a business or non-profit. People who are good at raising funds and soliciting support. Each contribution is a step bringing it closer to reality. One business, institution or organization supporting the project could make the difference between fading away and full realization. Each one who joins brings us closer to the goal, whatever your talents may be. I believe that everyone has something that they can contribute to “the soup,” but stone soup without sharing is just hot water.

I was born in 1960, raised in a family of fundamentalist Christians (I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior as a child). A bookworm, dreamer, and nerd, I loved my faith and also science, fantasy, imagination, creativity — I could never settle on who I was and what I wanted to do, and never seemed to fit in anywhere. The Musement Park is meant to be as close as possible to a theme park on the planet I seemed to come from.

  1. Nice to see that you’re back doing this. I really think that the first step you need to take is to go on ” deputation ” for this cause. Go to schools, and community centers and investigate what is already out there and see how your idea is like or different from them. Schedule speaking engagements at different places and publicly explain your Hero Development Centers. Go on Legalzoom.com and research what it takes to do this on the legal side. Watch Shark Tank and see what investors are looking for in new ideas. This might work, but it will take a lot of work.

    1. That’s pretty much the plan. I’ve already done a lot of research online about community and learning centers and such. Once I get the information summarized I’ll send the information to City Hall and civic clubs like the Lions and see if they’re interested or would like to have me do a presentation in person. I’m hoping someone who knows about business and legal stuff will take the lead.

      1. Great! You’re on the way. Unfortunetly, I know nothing about business so I can’t help you there. Maybe someone from church does……ask around there….or the senior’s center. BTW, I like the new profile picture. It looks good and better than the other one.

  2. I appreciate that you’re thinking about what I might need most right now, but as I wrote, everybody has something to contribute. Whatever you are good at, can be used. If you can cook, or do some kind of art or craft, then you can share that with other people. We can have a virtual center here. Maybe write an article (I can edit or ghost write) or just share pictures. There’s a “Gallery” option for posts we could try out.

    1. I see, I think. What you are wanting now is people to put their two cents in on this site. To use this site for their own blogging . To make this a community of bloggers so that we have just one site to go to in order to discover many different ideas without the hassle of searching the internet. Sort of a “Pinterest” for blogs. So this would be a good place to tell about life with Silly Brown the cat. How do I do this again? I forgot, like the old lady that I am.

      1. Hmm, I don’t seem to be getting notifications about these comments. I’d better check my spam folders. Anyway, yes, any way any body can contribute is something. For those who don’t live near Flushing, virtual contributions here will do. Although I’m looking more for people to share their knowledge and experience. Or pictures of arts, crafts, hobbies, science experience, “life hacks,” information on civic service. For instance, I could do a report on donating platelets at the Red Cross. You can always e-mail me, or send a message on Facebook, and I’ll edit it and run it through the SEO checker and edit it some more and then post it. Or you could put up some pictures of your craft work on Pinterest and refer me to those, and I’ll see about putting copies here.

        1. This is great. I’ll do the Facebook Messenger method. I think people would be interested on how we adopted a cat who was taken from a hoarders home ( along with her 50+ roommates) from the local shelter. I’ll even include pictures of how she looked when we brought her home and what she looks like now. I hope many people will get the idea of the Musement Park and start using it.

  3. Hi Dreamer
    I came across your post from this website, article: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-sharing-ideas-publicly-makes-you-more-competitive-maarten-ectors?trk=eml-email_feed_ecosystem_digest_01-hero-0-null&midToken=AQESCh3fz9JGew&fromEmail=fromEmail&ut=1DL6ulLeILM7Q1

    So I got curious.
    Since you’re asking for feedback; I thought I’d give you some. I am active Christian myself; so I see your heart in this… so please take this as constructive feedback.

    Your message or purpose is unclear. It needs to be concise. Look up elevator statements. Too many words = lost interest.
    Who are you? What makes you qualified? If you want to lead; you have to give people to trust you. That’s a start anyway…

    Bless you

    1. Thanks, Mary, but the thing is I’m nobody, I’m not qualified, and I don’t want to lead. I don’t even care about having everything a certain way. It’s just a rather general idea I’m throwing out there, hoping somebody who’s a somebody will get the idea or something like it and run with it.
