Awareness

The other day, March 20th, as you can see on the girl's shirt, I was walking in Tasmajdan Park and was given one of these pink roses for Breast Cancer Awareness Day.

This post goes out to all men (yes, you can) and women who have been touched by breast cancer or know someone who has.

Daily Haiku
Turning a blind eye
Won't make problems disappear
They fester and grow

A good haiku, and appropriate for the theme.

That's a very good idea... and the shot's lovely. Is that a church in the background (I think) or something else entirely?

Un geste fait avec beaucoup de grace et de larges sourires.

Strong message in the haiku and a lovely capture for the theme.

So nice!

This relates to a very good friend of ours who is recovering from recent surgery. A lovely portrait of a beautiful family!

What a lovely thing for this family to do together. (And you're right—I know a man who had breast cancer. Past tense and doing fine now, fortunately.)
