In 2003, J.R. was severely burned after a Humvee explosion during a military deployment in Iraq but says it was a change for the better. “I went from fighting for my life to helping inspire others to fight for their own. I'm extremely grateful for that day because it led me into this life. I am living the American dream.”
What an inspiration J.R.'s story was to all of us present at the event!
The afternoon started with 4Life prize giveaway in which the company distributed 100,000USD in prizes. Among those prizes there were 15 X 5,000USD prizes.
Our organization brought home two prizes: great friends and Diamonds Martha Silva and Elvira Farinha won 500USD and 5,000USD respectively.
What a nice way to end the Convention!

The afternoon session ended with the 5th and last "General Session" with Diamond International Platinums Juan Rosado, Damaris Zapata, Yadira Olivo and Dr. Hermínio Nevarez.
"Slavery is so much easier, Freedom requires responsibility!" (Dr. Hermínio Nevarez)
"To be free is to have the time and money to do what we want to do!" (Dr. Hermínio Nevarez)

His response: “Our theme for the event is Passport to Freedom. We felt there is no better city in the world that resonates freedom than the city of Philadelphia.”
At this Convention we have declared our Independence (we even had the "Liberty Bell" on stage at the end to symbolize the importance of the event to all of us)!
Declare yours today!!!

Last week, I declared my independence from everything that was keeping me from achieving my dreams.
I am commited to build a legacy of freedom that I can pass on to my family-a life of more choices, travel, unrivaled health, fulfillment and happiness.
Declare your Independence today!
