There are a lot of possible angles to take with this week's subject. But what came to mind for me is the connections that we "un-connected" humans make. Like when we work together to help people we don't even know. Last night I participated in a Light the Night Walk to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It was a gorgeous fall night as we convened at Heinz Field.
My niece Josie won Wells Fargo Advisor's MVP award for her fund raising efforts making rainbow bracelets.
Each walker receives a paper lantern to signify our collective efforts at contributing toward a cure. Certain people carries gold lanterns in memory of a survivor and others carry white lanterns in memory of a loved one lost to the disease. This is how we looked as we navigated the streets.
And the quote that Sally found to inspire us really resonated with this event: "We can not live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men." To see how others are connecting, please visit The Studio Sublime.
