God Bless you, Oprah

What a day.  Since I awoke this morning I anticipated the airing of the Oprah episode Jillian and I were blessed to be a part of two weeks ago.  I thought experiencing the program in person was intense.  This afternoon as I watched it again, it was without the distractions of the studio and the moment.  I watched it for what it was, an amazing hour that this country has needed for many years.  God bless Oprah for her courage and foresight to see the need to expose this and to do it.

It is evening here in Arizona and already I have received e-mails and phone calls in response to the show.  Men are feeling the need to let it out, to face the past for the first time, and to walk into the pain.  To be just a little farther down the road than others on this healing journey I am eager and excited to be here for my brothers that need a listening ear, and understanding heart.  Today has been about uncovering a lot of pain across the country…and today is about the beginning of lots of healing.  Praise God we can hold on to hope.  The battle is just beginning.
