SPEECHLESS GRATITUDE


 
I’m lost for words. I’m seriously lost for words. 

  
Two new endorsements for my NATIONAL DIVERSITY AWARD Nomination have been added and I’m seriously, unusually, lost for words.

  
Thank you both. 

  
Friday, June 12, 2015 – “Everyone has the right to know and be known; to see and be seen; to hear and have their voice heard; to understand and be understood; to love and be loved in return… to trust and know warmth; to know peace, security: to be treated with dignity and respect. Sadly, far too many people are denied their imprescriptible right to pursue love and happiness. David E. Watters is both a champion and guardian of and for liberty and justice. David is a caring, engaging, kind and warm person. A gay man who expertly uses his skills as a teacher and motivational speaker to enhance the lives of those who touch his; young people, old people; Human beings; LGBTI: People who have been abused and misused. People, who have been trodden on and/or tossed out of the family home to live on the streets, people who have been persecuted and tormented and given hateful stares as well as hurtful labels. People who have mercilessly and steadily been denied civil, equal and/or human rights. Around the world David is known as an engaging and enjoyable person to be around and with. He’s a man with a quiet charm that calmly sets peoples mind and heart at ease. A man noted for his work with and for the Equal Love Campaign UK – he’s also worked tirelessly and successfully to achieve Marriage Equality for same-sex couples in the United Kingdom as well. He’s an inspiration to both LGBT and straight people as well. I would like to thank the committee for considering his nomination for the work he’s done. He’s earned it. ”
  

Friday, June 12, 2015 – “I have observed the work and positive impact of David Watters and the Give Them Hope Campaign since David began this organization. It makes a tremendous impact on LGBTQ people, especially young people, by providing positive role models and stories of successful lives from a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. David Watters is very committed to helping others not only survive, but thrive in life.”
