Your "A Tempest in my Soul" article is beautifully written. You have a gift for speaking to the reader from both sides of this issue with utter respect and dignity. There is no need to shout when you can craft words that are so poetic, while still calling out those that do not or even cannot see the injustice in the stories of Matt and Stephen Nevels broadened lives. You did that incredibly well Joan Garrett.
Your story helps detach the stigma of being gay or even being HIV positive and takes the reader on an incredible journey of healing. The love of a true Christ-like believer like Matt Nevels shines brightly through your writing.
You can read many of my stories on my blog at www.thedecoratedtree.blogspot.com. I can only strive to write stories as poetic and poignant as yours. You are a beautiful soul for giving this story the attention it deserves.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
