So simply wrong on so many levels. Will there be a time that the pitchforks come out?  Oh wait!  Baa baa.

Live, love and rejoice

leave a comment »

Some of you may recall occasions I have written here about my friend Michelle.  Michelle was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma 15 years ago.  Each day brings new challenges and new reasons to rejoice and (in her words), to “thank God we are blessed with friends and family who support and love us and the connection and laughter bring moments of freedom from cancer”.  I consider it a privilege to know her and I know when I read what she writes what a very special person she is.  My connection to Michelle came through my daughter who refers to Michelle as her sister.

Each year she gives freely of her time and speaks to school children about the terrible disease of cancer.  Each year she participates in the Terry Fox Run.  It can be easy when we are healthy and those we love are healthy to step back from supporting those who are working to find a cure.

Please consider making a donation.  It is so easy means so much.  A simple click here and you are on your way. 

This lady humbles me – not an easy thing to do.  She continues to live each day with the best the day can bring.  As I have said here before, she is my hero and I don’t have many of those.

My baby girl 

My daughter has an amazing abilty to see good in a world that is anything but. She passionately believes in peace and never stops in her hope for a better world. She posted this on her Facebook corner of the ether.

Comparison and priority

I could not help noticing that the CBC mentioned the $5,000,000 spent for Summer celebrations in the Charlottetown Zone and at the same time reported on the fact that a lady who needed a specific drug to stay alive would have to move. This as PEI is the only Canadian province that has not approved this drug. 

Sure hope people enjoyed the free concert.

The CBC is reporting the P.E.I. government has made a change in the rules for video lottery terminals that will allow them to operate seven days a week in bars and lounges across the province.
