I’m having a great time at the Global Homeboy Network Gathering! The presentations ended this afternoon, and the whole experience was wonderful. Tomorrow we’ll be taking a tour of the Homeboy headquarters, after which I’ll order something delicious from the “waitresses with attitude” at the Homegirl Cafe.
I’ll have much more to say later, but for now I’ll just share a selfie of me and the man himself, Father Greg Boyle, better known as “G-Dog” or just “G.” We talked only very briefly since there were so many people who wanted to see him, but he’s just as kind and funny in person as he is on all those YouTube videos I’ve seen. It was a real joy to meet him! More to come.
