Most of us know at least one person who has suffered from cancer, and this time we at CBU wanted to tell them that “YOU ARE NOT ALONE.” That we are all supporting you, we’re here for you, and we will do our best to make you feel better.
For those of you who lost someone you love from cancer (like my grand mother,) I want to tell you that they’re here among us. They can hear us when we speak their names, and they know how much we loved them.
This is why CBU’s track and field team with the Women Center ran on Sunday to honor those we knew and didn’t know, during the Run for the Cure. We ran to make someone’s life better, and easier.
There are many questions we should ask ourselves in order to realize that we still need to do more things to be better and to live in a better world! Unfortunately a lot of people say that “life is not fair!” And they curse life and everything, just because they lost someone they love or heard about a good person just passed away. That is wrong!
I see the life from a different prospective. We are all here to deliver a message and this message expires after a certain amount of time, and that time is our life time. If the message stays with the owner more than it should be, it will start to destroy everything around it (just like anything else in the world) because it will ask to live forever, and that’s why the message will never know when it will expire.
From your day of birth and until you deliver your message, you will never know how many people will be affected directly or indirectly by you. One smile on a depressed person’s face can save his life, and you’ll never know, and this is a simple example of being a hidden super hero. Don’t be so negative about life and look at what you should do to let your message reach as far as you can imagine, before it expires.
Cancer is one reason to let us think about ourselves, not to kill ourselves, to be positive, to be creative, to be useful and to help everyone even if you don’t know or like them, because one day you will save someone’s life and you will be a hero.
We ran for the cure on Sunday and we at CBU showed everyone that we’re here standing by them.
Everyone should consider running or walking next year, to help those with cancer, or who know someone effected by it.
We can make a difference.
