Never Give Up !

It seems unfortunate that most people seem to have been affected one way or another by a major illness.  Wether thru a loved one,  friend, family or lover, or thru ourselves,   we go on to experience a whole set of different feelings when we hear the news.  Grief, anger and fear,  regret, disappointment, hopelessness and trauma are only some of the feelings we might experience.

In SL, because of its very nature, we get to know a large number of different people.  Many of these people are affected by illnesses.  Some chronic and severe, some terminal, but they all give us the opportunity to get to know them and spend time close to their light in a world of theirs and our own making while sharing the laughter and the love.

I feel very honoured to share my SL life with some truly amazing people who care enough and so much to  – as once said by the founder of Amnesty International, Peter Benenson – … light a candle than curse the darkness!

This they do thru the many charity events that take place in our SL community as They Play, They Party and They Care! Between our laughter and our games they do take time to act with conscience and raise awareness and funding for many worthy causes all over the world, making us all proud to share our time with them.

One of these causes is Relay For Life with it´s many teams of volunteers who raise funding by celebrating those who live with cancer, those who make it thru, their families, caregivers and their friends while  strenghtening the HOPE that comes when we are aware that patients do survive.

This is a way to  celebrate  cancer survivorship and an opportunity to promote a message of HOPE that affirms that people do survive cancer.  More importantly it gives all of us a chance to fight this the only way we can:  recognizing the struggle of millions who live with it every day and who never give up.

As part of the RFL effort,  Exclusive Models Agency and LC Designs (click link for LMRK) is teaming up this Saturday, May 17th at 1PM SLT with a Fashion Show to benefit this cause …

… Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness,

and let us put on the armour of light…

(rom 13:12)

  1. RFL is one of the more well know charities both in and outside SL. I love that they entertain to collect here. I always donate.

    We never know if the person in the IM window chatting away with us will be in RL tomorrow. Quite a few folks I have met love SL because it allows them to move again, to dance, to run and to play.

    It is because of the fact we don’t know the medical or mental state of those we deal with, we must treat all with respect and common decency. By default we should treat others with respect the don’t have to earn it but they can lose it.

    Funny thing is those I know of that love to gang up on folks are the loudest voices crying for protection and justice when up staged by some one else.

    Oh remember the new computer Granny wanted and got for Xmas,e careful she just might be on your friends list now.

    1. This is one of the things I love most about you Dee. The fact that you can play and laugh, eat cookies and yet you have this deep side to you that seems to dissect and understand things at another level. What you say is very true. We don´t know who is on the other side or what they are going thru. We should always keep that in mind. I send you love and hope your weekend is full of fun !!!

We´d Love to Hear from you !
