Random Thoughts Speaking Up

Never Be Afraid of Being Heard

Last week I recieved an email in my facebook inbox that said ‘Some fun is going on…. just write the color of your bra in your status. Just the color, nothing else. And send this on to ONLY girls no men …. It will be neat to see if this will spread the wings of cancer awareness. It will be fun to see how long it takes before the men will wonder why all the girls have a color in their status’

Color statuses of almost every female and even some males I knew were up throughout the week.   It spread like a game of telephone!  Who knew something so fun and simple could raise awareness to an illness that effects millions. 

I have personally known people in my life who have passed away to cancer.  People that have beaten cancer and live to tell the tale, have always brought me to tears.  But every single life touched by cancer has always inspired me to give yearly donations and walk alongside those who care for the cause.  This year I think I’ll do more walking 🙂  When I figure out when and where, perhaps you can join me or support me by making a donation for the team’s efforts. 

One voice can be heard by hundreds but thousands of voices can be heard by millions.  When it is televised as being heard around the globe, it gives me goosebumps to know we all had a little part in that 🙂 I hope that makes you all warm and fuzzy this tuesday.  We can make a difference!  We can change the world! (This is where my friend would tell me, ‘Take it easy Glenda’!) Take a look at the news item on Yahoo! Facebook Bra Phenomenon.

I would also like to thank all the voices who spoke up when they found that a majority of the redbox machines were full last week!  I hope you to got a free RedBox rental code!

Inspire someone else today to do something great!  We are all born leaders, ready to make changes!  Have a terrific Tuesday!

Until tomorrow
PS Saturday marked 9 days without buying anything I did not need, so I treated myself to a book 🙂  How are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?  Good I hope!  On day 21 you can let me know by taking the poll I’ll have on the left hand panel, make sure to look for it!  Oh and I found my purple glove, YAY ME!
