World Lupus Day is Tomorrow
Well, tomorrow's World Lupus Day, and I've got my finger hovering over the "publish" button for the Warriors' Wall project to go live first thing in the morning (or maybe last thing tonight so it's already up for the beginning of the day).
It's been a great privilege for me to read so many lupie's stories, and I'm sure it will be for you too.
Lupies, whatever you're doing tomorrow, put on your orange (or purple, if you're in the part of the world where the lupus awareness colour is purple) and wear it with pride. The wolf may have attacked you, but it hasn't beaten you. You're still here to fight another day.
Those of you who aren't lupies, please show a lupie some love. World Lupus Day reminds us of our strength and how far we've come and the challenges we've faced - but it also reminds us that we have even more challenges ahead before we get a cure. We may have a lot to celebrate, but we still have plenty to fear as well as to hope for.
(Note, I'm in Australia. Those of you in the USA are a day behind me.)
