Thursday’s Special: Think Pink

There a hand-full of sites I come back to visit time after time and Paula’s Lost In Translation is one of them. As is the case more than not her photo challenges seem to sing to me and this one is no acceptation and timely as well. I work for a non-profit hospice organization and this week is Breast Cancer Awareness week. It is a week we dedicate to bring a razor-sharp focus to this disease and I do not shy away from letting women know why we do so. Breast cancer if detect early is very treatable and survivable. Regular mammograms are the best way to detect breast cancer though how often is still being debated. I  have to speak into this as a male who has been blessed to see and come to think a little different: There would be no debate if men had the same level of risk as women for breast cancer. It would be paid for and required every year, no matter the risk factor, if was a mans life at stake. I believe the same should apply to women because they are our equals. Period. Now lets starting treating them as such and at the same time acknowledge and celebrate the differences. In that light here a photo of my favorite walk around camera as my contribution to Paula’s wonderful Thursday’s Special: Think Pink!

  1. John, thank you for this verbal and visual reminder. Coming from a man, this message strikes as more powerful. And your photo! I know that this is not your main photographic tool, but it is lovely. I have somewhere an ixus in cherry red, but I like the view of your power shot better. Almost a low key shot, it enhances the mysterious side of the “female” principle 🙂 Beautiful! Thank you for joining this challenge. Bless

    1. It is my pleasure and duty to speak up about this. I get to hear the tells of survivors and from the love ones of those did not survive because of my work. I am blessed by you posting it as a reminder those outside my sphere have the same or similar challenges that should connect us all. Peace~John
