Pure Love

What I’m about to describe happened about four weeks ago, and its effect on me continues. Death is not my problem. I’m prepared for that eventuality and likely have been for many years. It must have played a factor in my life because I was known as a fighter on the streets of Chicago, and at that time, I developed a reputation that carried across ghetto lines.

But the story is not about me but Lenette. On this day, she was so concerned about me that she set aside all other things and issues. Her concern was so consuming that I realized at that moment that she needed me as much as I needed her. At that exact moment, when I decided I must stay alive for now and care for her, her confusion disappeared. 

Amazingly, from then on, I began to get better in every possible way, and so did she. In all aspects, she began to be my full and complete Lenette. 

The power of love is that important. Having witnessed her helplessness with the time and effort she gave to me was too much to bear. I realized that I needed to live for her so she could live for herself.

So, not only did I get better, but Lenette became more vital and more present. A miracle, for sure, but not surprising when love is such an essential part of a relationship. It is ours.

We are so much better because of each other. Lenette and I will do our best to keep this wellness going between us. How blessed I am.   Sy

We love and love back–We grow because of this love—How blessed we are.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
