People asked if any men other then myself attended the LIPSTICK event. Five men attended. Here’s a photo of one, Rev. Odom, taken a few moments before he stood and spoke about the loss of his 13-year-old son. He spoke about how his family encourages him to go from mourning to celebration of the gifts his son was able to give during his short 13 years- on this anniversary of his death.
On November 26, 2014 the 12th Baptist Church in the Roxbury section of Boston, Massachusetts. As one would expect the meeting was very emotional for almost everyone in the room. The warm spirit of the young man, sitting behind me (not sound) caused me to turn around. The images below is what I saw. Its amazing the links between us when we come to a place with a open heart.
