Today, I saw two older guys, probably in their mid-50’s, walking through the downtown area of our small southern town holding hands. People were blatantly staring and talking behind their backs, but they held their heads high and carried on about their business. I couldn't help but give them two thumbs up as they passed by me. Their pride and confidence in who they are and their refusal to give in to the strangers who verbally abuse them and stare disapprovingly absolutely MMT.

Today, after months of sadness from a broken heart, I had a magical night - dinner and a long walk with a close friend through old factories, abandoned buildings, random train tracks and broken fences. Sitting by the river after our long walk, he admitted to having feelings for me when we were in university 7 years ago. It made me smile inside. Life's unexpected moments when you need them most MMT.

Today, a 16 year old girl holds hands with her one year old son. People call her names, but they don’t know she was raped at 15.

Today, I’m sitting in my hospital bed waiting to have both my breasts removed. But in a strange way I feel like the lucky one. Up until now I have had no health problems. I’m a 66 year old woman in the last room at the end of the hall before the pediatric division of the hospital begins. Over the last few hours I have watched over 30 cancer patients being wheeled by in wheelchairs and rolling beds. None of these patients could be a day older than 15. MMT

Today, I am reminded that my elementary school years have almost completely shaped who I am today. A bunch of kids who couldn't have realized the effect of their words and actions destroyed my sense of self worth so completely that it took me years to even begin to get some of it back. And today I look back and realize that despite the fact that I still have scars, I can barely remember how I got them. MMT

Today, it’s been a month since my wife spotted an injured stray cat on the side of the road that had been hit by a car. We pulled over, picked it up, and brought it to the animal hospital we take our dog to. The hospital admitted the cat and said they’d care for it free of charge. This morning we got a call that the cat was back on its feet, as sweet as can be, and looking for a permanent home. Right now he’s curled up on my lap. MMT

Today, I realized the happiest face I usually see all day at the office belongs to the office janitor.

Today, my closest lifelong friend Ben has been gone for over 3 years now. He lost his 17 year battle with brain cancer at the age of 27. He knew his cancer would take his life eventually, but instead of throwing in the towel, he created a non-profit organization to raise money for cancer research. Ben lost his battle in 2008, but 6 years after its creation, Drivers Fore Survivors has raised over $90,000 and counting. MMT
