This Is Why I Wear Pink
You probably know by now that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. You’ve also probably seen many campaigns for the cause and carry mixed feelings about what some campaigns truly stand for and how they can help when they simple urge you to wear a particular item. Awareness is good, but taking action is better.
The truth is, nothing you wear will make breast cancer go away. Even so, this is why I wear pink:
I wear pink because it gives me and others the chance to start a dialogue about breast cancer. It’s interesting that a color can evoke emotion in people and given them a chance to open up.
We live in a time when almost everyone has a story to share of how cancer has touched their lives and it’s a beautiful thing to share in somebody’s trials & triumphs.
I wear pink because it’s a visual reminder of the battle so many are going through. It’s easy to get caught up in your own life that you forget the struggles of others. It’s great to have that small reminder close by to get you out of your own head and remember there are real problems in this world.
I wear pink for those who can’t. For those who’ve lost their battle. To the grandma I never had a chance to meet, to my aunt who faces a new challenge everyday, and to everyone who left us too soon.
I will wear pink in celebration of their lives!
Nothing I wear will make cancer go away. We need a cure to do that. Please consider donating to help find one sooner.
Now I want to know, why do you wear pink?
