Never Shall We Forget

Life is an interesting gift from God.  The gift sometimes is sprinkled with rays of sunshine that allows one to feel that nothing could be sweeter.  Often, the gift is tossed with salt and pepper, where one has bright and dark days.  And there are times when life is like looking in a mirror and questions you to say to yourself, “How did I get here” and “Where do I go from here?”

I feel in my heart, that the latter analogy is something that creeps into the mind of individuals that have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  Confused to how the disease enters their bodies and will they survive are common thoughts, from what I’ve heard from many.  In 2008, the Brookland Foundation believed that saluting Breast Cancer Survivors was a noble act.  Their mission was to have a celebratory, recognition program that served as a vehicle to recognize Breast Cancer Survivors.  On October 10, the group held their 10th COLOR PINK GALA

10/10, also known as October 10, was a memorable day in the lives of many.  Lots of hugs were given to survivors.  Many tears were dropped in remembrance of those no longer living.  The proof is in the pictures.  Here is a link to the gallery:  The Color Pink 2018.  All in all, the awareness of Breast Cancer was further amplified.  Prayerfully, there will be a cure one day soon.  Until that time, it is highly suggestive that women (and men) do self-examinations and receive a mammogram.  Early detection is the key and thank you Brookland Foundation for starting the Color Pink Gala.  As the years roll on, NEVER SHALL WE FORGET what you have done.  Snap at you later. BE EZ. PEACE!!! #moseawell #beEZpeace
