Morning Edition - 5/22/06

M4; Mission Accomplished!
It was a great day for a walk yesterday; Especially when that walked benefited the millions of people infected with HIV/AIDS. The weather was amazing and it held out just until the end of the walk. As we crossed the finish line and began to search for a place to eat, it began to cloud over and rain. Proof positive (no pun intended) that it began well and ended well. Thanks again to all my supporters who contributed to make this event a HUGE success. If you're interested in receiving the 20 other photos taken at the event, please feel free to give me a shout-out in the Comments area. Contributors should just sit back; I'll be sending your photo album via e-mail by close of business tomorrow.

On Blast
What cause (charity) close to your heart will you dedicate your time to this year? What/Who prompted you to want to make a difference with this cause? What (specifically) will you do?

Keep passin' the open windows...

Hector them guns are no joke....keep up the good work at the gym baby.
Clent, clent, are just a masterpiece to behold. I can't see your body so I don't want to get to lying : ) But your face is a work of art.
Who got hit on the most?

From the pure joy of giving caused me to sign up for the Avon Cancer Walk in DC. However, I was $675 short so I was unable to walk. Still wanting to give I plan to walk for Luekemia in October. Maybe by then my fundraising effort will allow me to participate.

Congratulations Cocoa and Clint for a job well done! I thought of you on Sunday - it was such a gorgeous day, for most of it. You should have staked out a news camera and stayed in front of it LOL - I was hoping to see familiar faces in the news...

As for causes I'd like to support, there are so many. I do contribute to several throughout each year.

But if I had to pick one, then I'd say Research for a cure for Parkinson's Disease because it claimed my father's life.

Although, fortunately for him, he did live a long 87 years in fairly good health. We now believe that he'd had Parkinson's for many years without being officially diagnosed. Again, he has was fortunate that this disease didn't really start to affect him critically until about 1 1/2 years before he passed away.

Anyway, congrats, again for the long walk to a hopeful cure for AIDS/HIV!

It really doesn't matter how you give or what, just give. I feel that each and every one of us has an opportunity to give to something. I feel that we(humans) are becoming so selfish that our time is too important to volunteer. Trust me, giving your time is the most fulfilling act you can do. We, my kids and I, have given to Homeless shelter's and Walked several miles to in an effort to show support for different causes and to my surprise, the kids loved every minute of it.
So, Give.....of yourself to help the less fortunate and fill yourself with love.

Congratulations Fellows!! You both look fabulous!!! I can't wait for the rest of the pics! My heart always goes out to the babies...this is where I give the most. Oh, and I go on the breast cancer site everyday. If you do that one of the sponsors on the site will give. This year I've given to the Avon Cancer and Aids Walks.

Watching so many young people showing support for a cause that has so deeply affected my life, was touching. I enjoyed the walk and found myself smiling at the complete solidarity everyone showed that day.

I may never see the end of AIDS in my lifetime, but to know that I am doing all I can for the loved ones who are no longer with me, renews me.

Thanks to everyone for sharing in this cause.
