In the Spirit of the Day

It's Spirit Day. Wear purple. 
Say something nice to someone 
you wouldn't usually talk to. 
Stop attacking people 
for being different. 

Standing proud with GLAAD 
and against bullying, 
on Spirit Day and every day, 
and wishing for all of us to always be 
surrounded by love, 
not hate. 
May that be the world we live in, 
and may each one of us do our part 
to make it happen, 
starting right now.

New!! Johnny is writing a weekly column 
exclusively for the Falls Church News-Press
His debut article  posted yesterday—an enjoyable 
and thoughtful read about what women really want 
from the men in their lives. 
FCNP owner and editor-in-chief Nicholas Benton, 
in 2012, announced the column in a press release 
in which he noted, "I am delighted to have Johnny on board. 
I have known him since 2004 and have constantly encouraged 
him to do this, because in addition to being 
a world-class athlete, he is incredibly articulate, 
has a very good heart and has a lot to say."

Johnny's also blogging regularly 
about his comeback journey for ESPN!! 
His first entry, "A Fresh Start"—personal, honest, 
very Johnny—was posted last Friday and is the source 
of the quote on the Spirit Day photo above. 
Looking forward to reading more from him 
as the season progresses!

Yep, I'm still promoting this silly poll

Thank you, Johnny, for working so hard every day for us. Loved your column. Men need to see women as people, not as the other sex. People with a world view and many dreams and insecurities, versus trophies.

And thank you, too, Binky, for your sustained efforts. Hope you are all recovered and your nest all set in order.
