The snow fell wet and heavy the night before our WFWP 25th Anniversary event on April 29. That is April weather in Denver, Colorado. It can rain, snow, hail and then burst forth with bright sunshine, all in the span of one day. But at 8 pm the night before, I was getting worried. Fellow shoppers at the grocery store told me we were getting anywhere from four to 12 inches of snow.

It is also a symbol of being willing to embrace someone different so that we become bigger and greater by our ability to accept and love someone different than ourselves."
