Our first meeting was rocky at best in December. I thought it was a complete failure and that all my labor had been in vane. However, January’s meeting was a complete success. I watched as men became involved and their leadership skills came out. 

Empowering the LGBTI community is the most important thing I can think of. I know that lifting them up will give them the confidence they need to grow as men and women. This will help them get passed their pasts and shed that old lifestyle to create a new one. 

This group yesterday began that process. I couldn’t be happier.

They even came up with a name they seemed to like, it was simply “Community”. I thought it was to simple, but they thought it’s simplicity encompassed the goal, to bring us together. I like it.

With Love,
