Mr. Perry is courageous (whether he would define himself that way or not). His sacrifice at such an early age makes me ashamed of my middle-aged cynicism. I guess it was his grandmother's love (uncondtional love as he terms it) which countered the false love of those who condemned him at the Assembly of God college in Florida. I can't imagine having to stand up to those bigots at such a young age--but he did. His strength will pay off for himself and those he touches for many years.

Thanks for introducing him to us, Taylor.

Absolutely Derrick ...

I was SO far from being him in my early twenties. He makes me proud too, and gives me so much hope for the future of our people.
