PowerPoint or People?

In 2009, during Gen. Stanley McChrystal's tenure as senior commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, he viewed a PowerPoint slide that was meant to convey the American strategy there; however, it proved to be as indecipherable as streams of silly string.

"When we understand that slide, we'll have won the war," McChrystal said in the briefing, provoking plentiful laughter.

PowerPoint and the bureaucracy have combined again. And gay youth are the victims.

Instead of direct, interactive, effective training by knowledgeable trainers, foster parents and agency staff in New York learn about gay youth by bullet points read by an untrained staff member of an agency.

At AThousandMoms.Org, our contracts, under which we successfully trained thousands across New York, are gone. Our source of support to be a voice for LGBT youth is gone.

Stand up with us and for our youth. Please make a donation, whatever you can to www.AThousandMoms.Org.

Thank you.
