Staying Active

I hope this message finds you all in great spirits. I have now taken the fight for equality to the last frontier. Please see the link below, as I am in on of the commercials here in Anchorage to get sexual orientation protected from discrimination from employers.

Some Thoughts

The sun rises ever higher in the sky. The earth warms up and the snow melts. The rebirth begins anew this year. A cleansing breeze wafts through. The cool, refreshing touch caresses our skin in a kind reminder that the old chill still remains. A song comes on the iPod. Don't Hold Your Breath. A song that talks of not returning to where one used to be. To be reborn, stronger than they had been. To begin as the earth does every year, anew.

The truth is, we all go through phases of change and reformation. Some find religion, others find true love. Still others live through so much strife and conflict throughout their lives that they simply can't think of living as they were raised. So they change and become immensely stronger than they were.

It is these people that make a difference. These are the people that speak out against wrongs. These are the people that see unjust actions and work to correct them. These are the people that stand up for equal rights. The people that don't take lethargy as an excuse. The people that will make a wrong known. These people inspire change in their lives, communities, and even nations.

It is this group of people that I am inspired by. So I will support those that fight for the rights of people too scared to fight. Too afraid of what society will do to them. I'll stand up and fight for their rights though I may be beat up in the process. I'll stand up for the people that stand up, speak out, and create change.

DVD

So, it's been a year again. LOL! Question: How do I get a copy of the Documentary? I will obviously pay, but I didn't know if we had any extra copies?

Update

I have been doing well these days. I am in the Air Force, and currently stationed in New Mexico. I move to Alaska for the next three years in April! It has been an experience. I have shown several people our documentary and they are impressed!

Don't Know

I am not sure if anyone uses this anymore. I am in New Mexico and I wanted to say that I am proud to have been a part of this amazing group!

Xmas Pics (a little belated)



Hey you all,

I was just looking through old photos and realized I never sent these pics from our Christmas gift adventure. You guys were the best for helping to get all of these presents wrapped and labeled -- I got a really beautiful thank you note from the Children's Hospital saying HOW happy the parents were to see these gifts for their kids -- she said many of them started crying when they saw the gifts.

Here are my two favorite pics -- you guys are the best!
