The Oath

When I was 24 years old, my mentor, Eli Segal, asked to write an oath. It was for this new program called AmeriCorps, to help people see the power of service. Co-writing that AmeriCorps oath is one of the things I'm most proud of. I've see it uttered by Presidents Clinton, Bush, and today, President Obama, who administered it via simulcast as I was swearing in 1,000 people in Florida. There's no p Read more of this blog post »

Ralph Silver Hi Brad!

Here are some of my favorites.
1. The Martian by Andy Weir (great book!)
2. The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth
3. Enemies & Allies by Kevin J. Anderson

(1) is about an astronaut stranded on Mars, and how he survives.
(2) is about a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years old, and the people around her.
(3) Is about the first meeting of Superman and Batman, set in the 1950s.

I am just starting Artemis, by Andy Weir. This is a new book about settlements on the Moon, and looks fantastic.

Love, Ralph Silver


Janice Happy New Year.
