I worked with Jim Geary at Shanti Project in the early days. I was a minor player but Jim was an inspiring leader at a difficult time. He challenged and taught, frightened but dedicated volunteers to be strong and loving advocates for young, terrified men dying from the unknown disease AIDS. We didn't know what it was. I assume Jim had some fear too but I never saw it. He was couragous, loving, kind and a mighty force that confronted government and social agencies to deal with this epidemic in a meaningful and effective way. I haven't seen Jim for years but I will never forget him. He's a true hero.
