Greeting cards for National Coming Out Day

Dave Dickerson, who has just published his memoir from his time as a greeting card writer at Hallmark, does these wonderful Greeting Card Emergency videos for things like "when your snake eats the class hamster" for which there is no card available.

He just did this very moving video for cards for National Coming Out Day, which is tomorrow. I hope you'll watch to the end. And send your greetings and thanks to someone you know.

For my part, this one's especially going out in memory of Harlow Russell who died on October 4--was it two or three years ago? He would often show up at church on Sunday with a little glitter in his eye, and I don't mean that metaphorically. God rest his soul.

Dave's book is House of Cards. I've already ordered it; you should get a review fairly soon.

excellent video clip - thank you!

and in case you are still wondering, Harlow Russell died a little over 2 years ago.
