One Helluva Weekend

I just had one of the most amazing weekends ever.
I don't think that I have ever seen so many people in one spot. Moving together like a sea of hope. Corny? Sure, but I can live with that. I can't tell you how many times I felt like I could burst into tears. At one point I remarked to Jennifer that I felt like I was in a protest march. "You are", she replied.
Y-Me was like one big party. I believe I read that 30,000 people were there. I saw lots of laughs, smiles, hugs, determination and more pink than you can shake a stick at. A lot of people held signs in honor of those who have fought the breast cancer battle and won....or lost. It was moving to see so many walking memorials.
I observed that among the throngs of people everywhere there was not one group of people who weren't represented. Breast cancer touches everyone; it does not discriminate.
If you would like to see a few shots our my trip, click here. I apologize for the complete lack of originality of these photos as my digital camera died and I was left with buying a disposable camera.
Here are some really great shots from the Y-Me page.

I like the new place very much!!! I am also planning an escape from MSN at some point--mainly since they keep changing the formatting and every time they do I have a few days where i can't comment/post. I hate that.

Be glad you showed up for that final a day early--I once showed up for mine two hours late. Easily could have flunked me, but luckily I was a nerd who went to every class, so he let me take it then. Whew.
