This is a story about +John Pointer and the relationship with his beloved dog Benny that I wrote for +The Good Men Project.
When John Pointer shared his grief over losing his dog Benny, little did he realize how powerful his words would resonate around the world.

Here is a video I've made in response to a recent episode of the STARZ Channel show "Survivor's Remorse" and how it portrayed individuals, like myself, who have cleft lip and cleft palate facial differences. Please share if so moved. #cleftstrong

Here is my latest piece for +The Good Men Project.
