The Big Weekend

I leave today for the Avon 2-Day Walk in the mountains. I'm so excited for so many reasons. I think most of all, I'm looking forward to the amazing vibe that all of those wonderful women create. I've never felt anything like it before.

Everyone is there to raise money & awareness to fight breast cancer and everyone supports one another. There are people who have survived cancer, whose strength is incredible. There are people whose lives have been irrevocably changed by breast cancer and are there to honor loved ones. And there are people who just want to make sure future generations don't have to experience it at all. Aside from having children, it is the most awe-inspiring thing I've ever experienced.

Today I have two quotes to share, I will focus on both of them today.

Be the change you want to see in the World.
--Mahatma Gandhi

The future is hope.
--John Fiske
