Week 11 – #14. Four Letter Word

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. A lot of progress has been made but there is still a long way to go. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. When I think of all the women in the world who have undergone treatment for breast cancer, those who survived and those who didn’t, I think of a four letter word – love.

Week 9 – #28 Love is . . .

tossing away the key to your heart.

This week as my husband and I were walking across the Brooklyn Bridge over the East River in New York, we noticed hundreds of gym locker-sized locks hanging from the railings and lamp posts off the pedestrian path. Curiosity got the best of us so upon inquiring, we learned that the idea behind the locks is couples lock their hearts away and pledge everlasting love by placing their locks there and tossing the keys into the river below. The symbolic gesture started in Rome about five years ago as locals started copying the lustful characters in Italian author Federico Moccia’s popular novel “Ho Voglia di Te”, or “I Want You” in Italian.
