Update # 4 – The power of words


We are still going strong! 19 days left to continue to raise money. 19 days to left to keep spreading the word about “We Two Boys.” I am inspired by all of your kindness, support and words. I believe that W2B is already having a powerful effect on people. It is touching hearts, and minds.  I would like to share some of the words that have been written to me over the last week.  These words have touched my heart:

 Your vision is rare and wonderful. - Chester Dent

I expect this will reflect & touch many in community, friends, parents, & relatives alike and very happy it made Kickstarter's "Projects We Love: Movers and Shakers". Congratulations! - Thomas Powell

Congratulations! You deserve the success you have generated with your passion and your hard work.... what a noble project you have embarked upon! - Peter Magurean III

 As a gay man myself (I grew up in California before gays and lesbians had been "invented" so to speak), I really resonated to your telling of how you were treated as you matured in Albuquerque. - Grant P. Thomson

 As a gay man it touched me. I dedicate my support to my late partner-Phillip Glen Seamster Jr., who was also from Albuquerque. I put your project video on my FaceBook wall as well as sent emails to all of my friends who are gay supporting and/or love the arts, I hope that in some small way that has helped to push this over the goal.-  David Allen

Thank you again to all of you. Without your support we could not make this happen.  You are vital to helping get the words out about W2B. Please continue to spread the word, on Facebook, twitter, and email.  Here is an easy cut and paste link:
