Last week was hard. I wanted to write about it... but I didn't. I kept to myself, and embraced the discomfort of not vocalizing my hurt and anger with things that are wrong in the world.
Today.... I am better, and honestly it is because human beings are truly beautiful.
I will say this. I am deeply, deeply saddened by the events that unfolded in Las Vegas, on Oct 1st. I have connections there and I am happy to say none of those I know were physically affected.
I don't know about you, but I am tired of watching the televised repetition of hate over and over again. I do however, feel great emotion for all the ways people stepped up in this crisis and it gives me hope.
Seeing the lines of people Donating Blood in the aftermath alone, made the raw edges of it soften, just a little. Giving blood is a simple, easy gesture that can, and does mean the difference between life and death.
If you want to feel empowered, if you want to do something, and you don't know what or how.... donate blood. From personal, family experience, I know how important and precious it is to do this.
Cape Cod Health Care is having blood drives all over the Cape in their new blood mobile.
In fact...Country Garden has ours this weekend! So join me and the staff and Give Blood, Saturday, the 14th between 10 and 4 pm. right on our property!
Please help save lives. I know my family really needed it once, and will never forget it. Thank you ♥
