There is yet hope...

So often this forum is a place for venting of frustration and airing of gripes. I thought I would add something positive today. :)

I'm a newly declared Baha'i (25, Jehovah's Witness background, openly gay, live in a large Southern gay mecca) and I have a Baha'i coworker. He's an older gentleman, in his late 50's or early 60's and he's Persian. Grew up there and came here to study after the Revolution. During the fast we've been going on walks during our lunch hour once or twice a week so I can share the experience of my first fast with him, as well as get to know him better. I've been finding our walks to be very encouraging and uplifting so today I decided to open up to him.
