Good morning! And happy Friday!!!
Today is October 21, 2016 – the day for the “Be Bold, Be Bald” cancer awareness and fundraiser campaign. So, while I wear my fancy bald cap in solidarity of my friends and loved ones who are either still fighting cancer, have survived, or have passed on – I’m using today’s festivities as inspiration for today’s quote:
“My silences had not protected me. Your silence will not protect you. But for every real word spoken, for every attempt I had ever made to speak those truths for which I am still seeking, I had made contact with other women while we examined the words to fit a world in which we all believed, bridging our differences.” ~Audre Lorde (who passed in 1992 from liver cancer)
Audre’s words ring true for SO many issues in life. Talk about things: with your friends, your family, your physicians, strangers – bridge those gaps. You have no idea what similarities you share or what insights you may provide.
And have a wonderful weekend!
