  • AO -

Yo-leven PAX  showed up for  YHC’s 2nd Anniversary beatdown. The actual anniversary was 5/29/16, but Main Thang doesn’t meet on Saturday’s ergo it moved to today. I thought I would also use the opportunity to showcase some recent upgrades to Falls Park that are a little off the beaten path too.

Great work by the PAX and we were graced by Grapevine’s presence from the METRO region.  Glad to have you join us

YHC shared his appreciation for that F3 has done for him physically, emotionally and spiritually. We are all very fortunate to have this band of brothers. Let’s keep it strong and give it away. The prose below speaks directly to what YHC has experienced through F3. I hope it speaks to each of you as well.

It takes more than biology to make a man. Many males never progress beyond boyhood. They can’t see beyond themselves. Manhood is a choice. It is using your strength to help and protect others. It’s having the courage to face every day and take responsibility. It’s waking up every morning and choosing to do difficult things simply because it is right that they be done. It’s sticking by a commitment even to your own detriment, and knowing that, not making commitments lightly. It’s wanting the best for others, without envy, and expecting nothing in return. It is standing for truth when the truth isn’t popular. It is knowing God is great, and I’m not Him.
