Awesome work by the pax of Gainesville on their first F3 beatdown.  Our nan’tan, Extinguisher, ensured all core principles were introduced throughout the beatdown as the pax from Jacksonville encouraged and pushed the new pax to give it their all. 

YHC talked about the need for groups like F3 in order to spread the love.  Last weekend was a dark time for the community of Jacksonville due to a senseless act of hate.  One of the victims was the aunt of a team member at the hospital where YHC works.  While this cowardly act was predicated on hate, we cannot respond in kind.  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr once said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can.  Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”  YHC encouraged the pax to go out and show love to their families, to their communities, to their brothers, and even to their enemies.  Spread the light of love so that one day, we can eliminate hate. 

Payers and pledge!
