Day 274: Please Remember...

*heavy sigh* I really don't even know what to say... October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For those that don't know, I lost my grandmother to breast cancer years ago... *tears well up as she types* in fact, it's only by being the eldest grandchild that I even got the time with her that I did... I know they all remember her, fondly at that... but some cousins were still very young! I was just at the point in my life where I was really aware of all that she was, all I could learn from her, and all she truly stood for...

My little sister was still in middle school... but she sure put her thoughts together well (for a school assignment, later in high school.)

 

I simply would like to urge you to take the time... maybe toss out a dime... and Think Pink this month.

[disclaimer: my apologies to anyone who finds this scandalous, inappropriate, or unnecessary. However, this is really dear to me, close to my heart, and of utmost importance. That, and the fact that you really can't see anything... in fact, for all you know this is my back, my belly, or Fred's knee!]
