ZEKE OF SURVIVOR WAS OUTED LAST NIGHT AS TRANSGENDER - HIS OUTER WAS SENT PACKING, AND ZEKE CAME OUT THE WINNER KNOWING HE WAS FINALLY THE MAN HE WAS BORN TO BE

From an open letter by Zeke on what happened and how to live life.

:"To adventure is to invite hazard into your life. The thrill of adventure comes from accepting this risk, and the reward from confronting whatever might be thrown at you. But you cannot control the hazards you face, be they repeated misfortune or the harmful actions of others. You can only control how you respond. It's up to you to decide whether the hazard will define you or you will define the hazard."

We all take paths.  I could have taken the $250,000 right after law school.  I convinced Baker and Botts it was time to open an office in Russia, I was first dismissed and then 6 months later they had opened their offices.  But at that meet and greet it was not who I was.  Had the partner in charge of the international law section bought my idea right away and offered me a job, yea for Moscow I would have grabbed it.  But I had no desire to be a litigator for big corporations.  It was not me.

So I set out on my own.  Today I can do things I would not be able to do if I were tied to a law firm as a partner.  My freedom allowed me to effectively bring in federal law enforcement in my brothers case - yea lawyers taking is retirement, allowing his insurance to lapse and having him facing eviction from the nursing home was the final blow which brought in the feds and got the judge to change course.  But I had to do things I could not do if I was with a firm.  Now while we finish the clean up, I get to sit back, visit my brother, and know if anyone says boo, they are toast.

You cannot be yourself if you are unwilling to adventure.  Please read Zeke's letter, it is inspiring.  

Unfortunately because of the survivor works, I think soon enough he will be targeted, not because he is transgender, but because now he has a sympathy factor going for him and that is always a big target on a player's back.  But he is a winner.  He is that rare man we see in today's world.
