Pink Glove Dance

Who says kids don't have a thing or two to say? My best friend’s daughter is an extraordinary 11 year-old. I am proud to call Katya my friend as well. This afternoon she sent this video that has been making the rounds and I wanted to share it with you.

In order to raise breast cancer awareness, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon produced the Pink Glove Dance for Breast Cancer Awareness. Their hope was that they could get 1,000,000 hits to help raise money. In just one month they’re nearly at the 5.5 million mark.

It’s fun and inspiring. Take a moment and let it make you smile ;-) xxx

That was great! As a menopausal breast cancer survivor I really enjoy the way you raise awareness. I'm working with Todd Youngblood of ChiliTechnology to get the word out about the ChiliPad. It’s really simple and small, just a mattress pad that can both heat and cool the bed, but it works surprisingly well. It’s so much easier to deal with menopause symptoms when you can get a full night’s sleep. I started using my ChiliPad during perimenopause because my tossing and turning was keeping my husband up at night, and as I progressed I kept adding fans to the room. He actually moved onto the couch in the basement for a while. :( We got the dual zone ChiliPad which lets me set the temperature of my side of the bed independently from his - and it's nice to have him back by my side!

That is a real nice thing done by the medical fraternity.I think there should be more kindness and help for the diseases which harass the patients mentally.

Handguns.

A mentally ill young man was able to buy a terrible weapon of mass destruction and used it to destroy several lives this weekend.

I struggle to make sense of the recent tragic shooting in Arizona as I hear the words of self-important politicians, political pundits and shock jocks ricocheting through the airwaves like so many bullets, each one believing they can repel those missile-like words like Superman.

There is no sense to be made of it.

There is no Superman.

It is true that there will never be a gun in my house. I made that decision 37 years ago and stand by it.

You can have a gun in your house, but you are not welcome to bring it to mine.

I believe with all my heart that guns have no place at a grocery store parking lot, and challenge anyone to explain why I might be wrong.

I have no answers, and only one question:

What is the argument for owning a weapon designed to kill man?

The Freedom of Speech in Troubled Times

We the people of the United States of America seem to have lost our way.
While it is true we stand far apart on the issues that face our troubled nation, what I find troubling is our inability to have an open dialogue about what is most important. It is not the first time in our history the people have been at odds, nor is it the last, but I am finding the recent loss of civility to be distressing.
For those of you who don’t know me well, or at all, I am a typical baby boomer. An odd combination of Janis Joplin, The Monkees and Stevie Wonder form the soundtrack of my early years. The Vietnam War, civil rights, space travel and Andy Griffith helped shape me.
My father was a career military man, a proud NCO in the US Air Force, and I was raised on domestic military installations. I always stand for our National Anthem and am appalled by those who cheer at ball games before the song is over. I cringe at tattered flags flapping on car windows and have been known to stop workmen taking …

This week a troubled young man first shot and killed his mother then killed twenty children and six more women at a nearby elementary school.

The facts are still unfolding.
What we do know is that the killer shot his way into the school. We know that six of his murder victims were women devoted to the care and education of children. We know twenty children, hoping Santa would visit them soon, were murdered before they had even lost all of their baby teeth.
The killer used a semi-automatic weapon to inflict multiple wounds on all of his victims at the school.
Semi-automatic weapons.
As I struggle to make sense of the tragic shootings in our nation over the last several years, I grow more tired of self-important politicians; political pundits and shock jocks ricocheting through the airwaves like so many bullets the language of hate and fear.
Banning semi-automatic weapons will not end the tradition of the first Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas.
