Cincinnati author Lou Peerless Civility Shines It's Easier To Get Along

Press Release: Cincy author Louis J. Peerless releases second book Civility Shines – It’s Easier To Get Along!

Louis Peerless was, and has remained, grateful for the opportunity.

Five years ago, barely into his 60s, Peerless, a Cincinnati man who’d grown up in North Avondale and built a career in commercial real estate, fell ill.

He recovered, returning to Blue Ash with his young family, and began considering what might have been.

This was no time to be confronted with health issues, however.

Peerless knew his recovery would be a lengthy one. In a volatile environment for the commercial/investment real estate industry, he called his active clients and referred each to an appropriate competitor.

Cincinnati Enquirer 11.2.17

Given a second chance, and assuming some of his future limitations, Peerless decided that, in his new life, he would need to do something for the greater good.

A lifelong optimist, Peerless contemplated his future trials and the challenges he would face. He decided that he wouldn’t give up, regardless of what obstacles were in his path.

ENTER THE BOOK – AND THE MOVEMENT: ‘CIVILITYSHINES.COM’

A year thereafter, following months of thinking and lots of yellow pads, he started with a simple message: “It’s Easier To Get Along!,” and embarked on his life’s new mission, a message worth taking across the globe. But how?

Peerless started with a book; and “ultimately, the message will spread, and finally, the future emergence of Civility Clubs can bring a community together,” Peerless says.

His principal platform is his main website, www.civilityshines.com, from whence Peerless and his book are seeking to spread the word.

This is an important message. We need to get it in the hands of those who run our schools and congregations. We need to reach our students and their families,” Peerless says.

We need to reach the widest possible audience through the Internet, first talking about it in our local schools, congregations, libraries and elsewhere in our community. It’s really a simple message of equality: Civility Shines! “It’s Easier To Get Along!

In many ways, this is the journey I have always been on,” Peerless says of his newfound strength and focus, this time as a professional writer.

Peerless constructed his own website and handles his own e-commerce, offering themed T-shirts, coffee mugs, pens and similar marketing materials.

THE FUTURE OF CIVILITY

And where civility is challenged?

If, along with the words we choose, we are able to realize how our voices, our volume, pronunciations and body language all have an impact on those who hear and see us, we can opt to use the most desirable of each for an encounter,” says Peerless.

Most of us, I hope, will be able to recall the sensitivity of the loving voice, the calming influence of the supportive voice, and the anticipated dispute that comes with a confrontational voice,” he said.

Most of us will be able to recall or learn about the power of those elements in communication and which can be manipulated to change the discussion,” Peerless adds.

Peerless is of the opinion that people who practice civility in their interpersonal communications, daily life, in both word and deed, can live life more satisfied.

And those who practice random kindness, a core component of civility, likewise.

There are always exceptions, but my experience is those who practice civility are going to experience more satisfaction, purpose and direction in their lives. And they have fun doing it!Peerless says.

I think that we can feel very fortunate that we have been subject to such incivility and malice aforethought recently, led by our elected leaders,” Peerless adds.

The President, for example, is a very controversial man, with behavior that has international implications.”

We need to dialogue, and will ideally agree on what platforms are needed to bring civility, civil behavior and random kindness back into the fore for the majority of people who now have it on the back burner. It really is easier to get along!Peerless says.

DEMENTIA-INCLUSIVE CINCINNATI, USA: Mission Quite Possible! New Public/Private Partnership, led by the City, ERS, neighbors and friends, seeks to establish Mecca of Dementia-Inclusive Thought, Practice and Deed in the Queen City. The first step is taken today, in Kennedy Heights.

For Immediate Release: Mission Quite Possible – Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati – All-Star lineup tackles insidious disease starts in Kennedy Heights tonight – Press Release for Tuesday October 10 2017

Mission Quite Possible:

Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati, USA

Public/Private Partnership led by City, neighbors and friends seek to establish Mecca of Dementia- Inclusive Thought, Practice and Deed

Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Mann: ‘If you have a brain, you can get dementia.’

Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati led by all-star constituents from industry-leading organizations.

Community Outreach: First Cincy neighborhood up is Kennedy Heights, on Oct. 10.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio – Oct. 10, 2017] That quirky Midwestern town personally responsible for having introduced America – and the world – to Pete Rose, Pampers, professional baseball and cinnamon-flavored chili has spawned an angelic chapter, one designed to treat a massive foible affecting humanity not just in the Midwest, but worldwide.

And they call it: “Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati.”

A bold claim, to be sure.

But behind the hubris, what makes this Cincinnati-born, Queen City–bred initiative so soaked in authenticity, regional pride and potential is the five-star lineup of players drafted to solve this insidious disease.

Cincinnati is an established leader in industry, nationally and internationally,” says Laura Lamb, CEO of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS), a committee member of Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati.

We have a plethora of Fortune 500 companies, world-class entrepreneurial hubs, and a ravenous nature of working together. Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati is a comprehensive, coordinated, grassroots effort to launch an all-encompassing dialogue for the sake of our families, friends, our neighbors, and our city,” said Lamb.

Laura Lamb CEO ERS

Laura Lamb, president and CEO of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS), leads the Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati steering team.

There’s never been such a dominant, all-encompassing, more vicious predator of our minds, families and communities, as dementia today represents,” said the Honorable David Mann, vice mayor of Cincinnati. A former City Councilman, local attorney and devoted Cincinnatian, Vice Mayor Mann insists his city isn’t in it for the publicity, nor the profit.

Like everybody else everywhere, all across the world, “we see our loved ones drifting away, without hope, as lives and families are destroyed. Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati was formed to say, ‘No more. We can do better. We can beat this,’ ” Mann said.

Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati: Step One

The first tangible steps towards establishing Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati will be taken today, Tuesday, Oct. 10, at a Kennedy Heights Community Gathering, in one of Cincinnati’s original integrated neighborhoods.

Representatives of Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati such as ERS (www.episcopalretirement.com), the Office of Cincinnati Vice Mayor Mann, and the Greater Cincinnati chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association plan to convene an informative meeting of friends, neighbors, citizens, government officials, and representatives of the aging and retirement industries.

It’s no accident that this initiative starts in Kennedy Heights.” said Steve Grieser, chair of the Aging-In-Community Team at the Kennedy Heights Development Corp. (KHDC).

We are proud that we remain, 50 years after our original integration, a community represented by every age, race and ethnicity. Kennedy Heights is the perfect place to start.”

The idea for Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati came to ERS’ Lambas just a great idea.”

The CEO of Episcopal Retirement Services, a distinguished network of retirement communities created by a husband with an aging wife (hence the creation of the first ERS community, the Marjorie P. Lee Retirement Community).

Lamb was intrigued with the tricky business of understanding dementia, dealing with dementia, and “just how to share ERS expertise, the right way,” she says.

Meet The Team: Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati

The Dementia-Inclusive Cincinnati team, launched early this past summer at the offices of ERS, meets regularly and includes representatives from the following organizations:

KENNEDY HEIGHTS DEVELOPMENT CORP AND COMMUNITY COUNCIL: One of 52 official Cincinnati neighborhoods, Kennedy Heights was an original integration project of the Queen City and remains culturally diverse and vibrant half a decade later. Located on the East Side of Cincinnati, Kennedy Heights is tucked between Pleasant Ridge, Silverton and Madeira. The Kennedy Heights Development Corp. and Community Council are led by vibrant, engaged individuals dedicated to making their neighborhood a perpetually-inclusive environment for people of all faiths. For more information about Kennedy Heights please visit www.kennedyheights.org. or contact Mr. Grieser at slgrieser@gmail.com.

ALZHEIMER’S ASSOCIATION, GREATER CINCINNATI CHAPTER: One of 70 Alzheimer’s Association chapters serving the U.S., the Greater Cincinnati group started in 1979 and has grown to serve a 27-county area in the Tri-State region of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, serving an estimated 50,000 individuals and their families. The chapter is led by Executive Director Ms. Paula Kollstedt and can be reached at (513) 721-4284 and/or by visiting www.alz.org/cincinnati.

CITY OF CINCINNATI, OFFICE OF THE VICE MAYOR DAVID MANN: A staunch advocate of affordable living and the inalienable right of seniors to retire and live the balance of their lives in dignity, the Honorable David S. Mann has gone so far as to repel off a downtown Cincinnati building (Central Parkway Place, operated by ERS) as a fundraising effort. The office of Vice Mayor Mann is in constant contact with ERS for events such as the recent unveiling of the $10.7 million new affordable living community for seniors, Knowlton Place in Northside, another one of Cincinnati’s 52 neighborhoods (ERS operates communities in seven Cincinnati neighborhoods, eight by the end of 2017).

EPISCOPAL RETIREMENT SERVICES (ERS): After 65 years, ERS has emerged as a local and regional leader in the retirement industry through a person-centered, innovative and spiritually-based care and service model. ERS (www.episcopalretirement.com) sits at the intersection of upscale retirement communities and affordable housing communities for seniors, all backed by a services-based lineup including Parish Health Ministry, Deupree Meals On Wheels, and Living Well Senior Solutions geriatric care management.

Additional members of the steering team include Cincinnati City Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld and Chief Advocacy Officer for Aging and Accessibility at the City of Cincinnati Jon Lawniczak. Representing family members of older adults who are living with Alzheimer’s are Vistage Chair Joseph Faessler, and Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati Tom Mobley.

The Kennedy Heights Community Gathering is scheduled for between today from 6:30-8 p.m. at the KHAC Lindner Annex, 6620 Montgomery Road. The general public and all media are encouraged to attend.
