Holidays and Celebrations:
Happy Purple Day, or also known as International Epilepsy Day. One of the oldest afflictions known to man where people loose themselves into a seizure either large or just an absent seizure for a moment. Those moments can be disastrous and extremely horrifying for the person and those who love them. Medicines can help in most cases, but the side effects can be equally difficult. Living independently is a dream for most of the afflicted. Just driving a car is outside their reach. Wait times for testing in Canada can be up to a year or more for children. We’ve already lived through the testing and had confirmation with my oldest grandson. You’d think testing for progress would be shorter, but it seems to be just as long or longer due to COVID backlogs. Please give generously to find a cure.
It seems strange to celebrate Earth Hour, while bombs are disseminating the Ukraine and the threat of nuclear or chemical war has never seemed more imminent. But continue to due your part and turn your lights out for 1 hour tonight.
Be certain to eat your spinach today as we celebrate National Spinach Day. After all if it made Popeye stronger, it can make us all stronger.
