The saying is that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. Donna Day 2013 proved that right. There were 50 bloggers ROARING loudly about pediatric cancer and St. Baldrick's yesterday. One blogger's voice and keyboard can be a powerful tool, but 50 collective voices and keyboards? I think Walt Whitman said it best with the words "barbaric yawp." Thing is, though, that this March is gonna go out with a big ROAR, too, as the Donna's Good Thing's St. Baldrick's shave will wrap up the month on March 30. I am still reeling from the outpouring of love, support, stories, words, and blog posts from the participating bloggers.
From the bottom of my bursting heart, THANK YOU to all those who so willingly used their platform to talk about the not always popular topic of childhood cancer. You are making a difference.
