Good afternoon and happy Sunday!

It’s been a very relaxing morning and afternoon for me as I prepare for the start of my new job tomorrow morning! It will be the first full time job I have ever had and its very exciting for me! I just wish certain people were here to celebrate it, feel it, listen to me talk about it, but what can you do right? Life always throws curve balls!

Anyway, today is Sunday and its time to shout out this weeks supporter! NIKE! Yes, Nike is our supporter this week and I’m really happy about it for two reasons; I wear just about every type of their shoes and some of their clothing lol, and what they are doing is some of the most support we have gotten from such a high status company!

They have publically stated that ANY professional athlete, of the homosexual community, that would like to come out of the closet will not only have the support of Nike but Nike will also jump at the opportunity to endorse them!

Rick Welts, who is currently the President of the NBAs Golden State Warriors and out homosexual, says “The player who does it, they’re going to be amazed at the additional opportunities that are put on the table, not the ones that are taken off.”

Not only is Nike jumping at opportunities of the sort but other companies as well! People are apparently trying to “capitalize on the LGBT community as it is becoming something more and more accepted!

I just think that breakthroughs like this cause for wonderful celebrations! Think about it, just ten years ago, this was unheard of, just 20 years ago, we were not only animals but treated like ultimate enemies just because we wanted to breathe! Really, think about it!

Thank you Nike! Hopefully your incentive will help professional players to finally come out!

Peace and Blessings!
