So it’s been 5 years since YHC dropped the first #RedPill. A lot has changed, yet the return to Shawshank felt just like old times. The plan was to see about 20 guys in the gloom, but the men of The Hollow had a trick up their sleeves. They decided to join the party and converge at The Shank. Baby Daddy, also celebrating 5 years, got up extra early and made the trip from Aiken. My man, Field Goal even made his return to the gloom. I really hope to see more of that guy soon. So YHC has never really been known to incorporate music into the routine, but these men like to party. So a playlist was whipped up for the occasion in hopes of numbing the pain. Today was a good day. It went something like this…

All unspoken prayers
A lot of fine men have done an amazing job of recapping their F3 anniversaries over the years. I’m not that guy, but I have a few things that I believe in. They are as follows…
F3 makes good men great.
F3 instills a sense of belonging to a special group – one that is focused and purposeful in growing and giving.
F3 is not about you. It’s about us. It’s about them.
F3 has saved lives. I know this in my heart to be true.
F3 men and their combined prayers and support have aided in providing what some might call miracles.
F3 is faith in action. We do not sit idly by and hope that things get better. We assemble and ACT.
F3 is community. It is home.
F3 is about making our kids’ future better than ours.
F3 will give back to you 10 times what you give to it. Guaranteed.
F3 is a gut-check. It will be hard, but it will be worth it.
Stay the course. I promise it’s worth it.
