Wonderful World Wednesday
White Dog and the others have been helping with the final touches. For half of the WDA this Saturday's Candle Light Tribute to cancer Warriors, Survivors, and Caregivers will be their first experience in the fight to end the monster for all creatures forever. They have never experienced the power of the Wall of Heroes but have watched me over the past few weeks prepare for its installation.
|These are just some of the faces from our Blog Family that will join us on the Tribute Wall. Each year we save and guard these tributes and they are displayed and honored each time the Wall is assembled.|
The vision is mine, but others are insistent that as founder I must also be heard. Wise and with an understanding that there needs to be closure at the end of the night, White Dog has come up with a solution and a role for me that is beautiful. Here is the part where I ask for your approval to be audacious enough to read a prayer that I have written. What do you think?
"Joined hand, paw and heart, we ask the Universal Light to reflect our unity and love tonight and to bless all of the Warriors, especially those here with us, those remembered on the Tribute Wall, and those never forgotten in our hearts.
"We ask that our hope and determination to end cancer for all creatures be channeled into insight for those doing research to help them clearly make connections and build bridges to cures;
"into compassionate understanding and wisdom for those involved in healing, in treatment, in providing care;
"into increased awareness and support for the fight itself.
"Finally, we ask for success in finding ways to stop the beast that takes too many too soon and calls too many to do extraordinary battle within their own bodies.
"We ask this in the name of creating a more perfect world, shining with health and the opportunity for all to fully realize his or her life's potential.
