Thank You Dirk & other supporters in Pred Nation

I rarely post to any site, but feel compelled to Thank you Dirk and the others who have either posted or made positive comments regarding the YouCanPlay video and program started by Patrick Burke. I am a frequent viewer of OTF and consider it my #1 site for Pred's news. I am a HUGE Pred's fan and Full STH. I am also a gay man. I know the damage first hand of what discrimination, violence and lack of acceptance can do to a person. I can fully understand how it can put a young person's mind into a desparate mode. The simple fact that the Burke's and other BIG NHL players have made this video is very comforting. In addition to seeing it in your daily news on more than one occasion with some positive comments from other Predator's fans is icing on the cake! I would never expect anyone to be an activist, simple non-judgmental acceptance is a very calming feeling. Thanks again to all who recognize this issue and support acceptance. Now, making my monthly "car payment" on my 2/20 plan just got a little sweeter!! (no pun intended)
