“Before I met Bizi, I was overwhelmed. I was very aware of the world’s problems, but I felt inadequate…too weak to change them. Since I met Bizi, things have changed. To be a true friend, I had to speak up. I became his advocate; he lent me his strength and I grew a backbone. Living different gave me courage.” – Henry
