Dr. Collin Smikle (on the left, photo does not do him or the soft, glorious cape justice) inducted into the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude in January 2014 for being head of the the first clinic in the Bay Area to offer assisted reproductive services to HIV-affected couples. Dr. Smikle generously and openly contributes to the conversation around family building options for all, including HIV-affected couples. Through his work and contributions to many conversations, he supports the expansion of such services. Thank you for being such a long time collaborator!
About the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude!
“The plain fact is that the world does not need more successful people, but it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” David Orr
I deeply admire those who “live well in their places.” The ordinary and the unsung who offer to the world the very best parts of themselves without expectation. This is a beautiful expression of love in her calm, persistent, generous manner – offering a ripple of change (a metamorphosis) to the world. Inductees to the Love Superhero Hall of Gratitude are caped in recognition of their contributions to a love-filled world.
