Light the Night


Hundreds of people turned out for the annual Light The Night walk last evening in downtown Colorado Springs, including Susan and yours truly.

I don’t know how much money was raised for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, but based on the enthusiasm I expect it was a lot. Thanks to those of you who sponsored me. I raised $400 of my $500 goal. My Donor Page will be live for a few weeks for anyone who wants to make a belated donation.

One lady in front of me had two “In Memory” patches on her shoulders; one for her husband and another for her daughter. She herself was wearing a survivor T shirt—and most amazingly, a smile.
