Here is a message that Scott sent us about the situation.
My dad is homeless living on the streets of Los Angeles with Alzheimer's disease. I went there to try to locate him and bring him back. I found him, but he was worse than I thought. You see, my dad, Frank, was once a "successful" man. He owned property in upscale Los Angeles and was well known and liked by many. Now, because of Alzheimer's he has nothing but the clothes on his back and a dim memory of who he was. I'm pretty sure he did not really know who I was when I found him. I could not talk him into getting on the plane to come back with me and he had no identification, so I would not have been able to get him through the tight airport security, anyhow. I had only four days to accomplish my goal; sadly it wasn't nearly the time I needed.
Why am I telling you all this? Well, there are two reasons. First, I wrote and recorded a song called "How to Fly", inspired by and dedicated to my dad. It has reached the Top-Ten on the pop/rock charts on Broadjam.com and is in first place in the "Next Hit Song" contest. It is a beautiful song and people are responding to its very real and important message. With Father's Day around the corner "How to Fly" would be an especially wonderful song for people to send to dad to show how much he is loved and appreciated. Life is short, and as I know all too well, tomorrow is sometimes too late. I am planning to return to Los Angeles as soon as financially possible to rescue my dad. Any funds generated from my music download sales will go toward that goal. Thank you so very much for taking the time to read my story. We all need each other to make a difference and when we help heal others, we, ourselves are also healed.
