LiveStrong - 2011


At the same time yellow reminds us of the devastating effects of cancer and how it has taken the lives of those who depend on us for miracles, it also reflects our hope.



For as many tomorrows as it takes, it is today we put together our trust. There will be a better day for those who look to us. It is time to work and pray. Time for hope in our sorrow and dedication to our cause.



Live strong, dear ones. As always, our inspiration comes from those who've gone before.



Hope, like the gleaming light of day
Adorns and cheers our way
And, still as darker grows the night,
Emits a brighter ray.
--Oliver Goldsmith

Father Tom said...

In going around to as many posts as I can on this special day, I couldn't help but notice how LoveStrong is out there as much as LiveStrong. Boy, if we Live as strong as we Love, cancer doesn't stand a chance. But, there has to be strong love on the part of those who can make things happen, who can find a cure not only for humans, but for our beloved animals as well.
