"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
I was delighted to run across the above quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. because I think it perfectly sets the stage for THP's upcoming 30th anniversary next year. And by next year, I mean all year. You see, we have a lot to remember, honor and yes, celebrate after almost three decades of service to people living with HIV/AIDS in our community.
There isn't one particular date to recognize, there are many over the years and there isn't one particular person to acknowledge or honor, there are hundreds upon hundreds. So instead, we want to pay homage to the previous 29 years as we keep our eye on the future - a future that certainly looks more hopeful for people living with HIV/AIDS than it did 30 years ago.
Most importantly, we want you to come with us on this anniversary journey. That just makes sense since many of you have been with us since the beginning. And we are well aware that this agency has survived for three decades for one simple reason - your generosity.
We look forward to sharing memories and stories with you but we also want to hear your stories. So we will be telling you about several opportunities throughout the year that will allow your voice and heart to be heard.
Because of you, our clients have never lost infinite hope.
The journey continues and we are so grateful that you are with us.
Peace to you and your families this holiday season -
