Going Pink

This article http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/think-before-you-pink-during-breast-cancer-awareness-month-1.2788447 brings up some good points to consider this month when showing your support for the battle against breast cancer.  It also touches on a side of human nature that is not so desirable and that is our tendency to do things that make us feel “good” instead of things that actually do “good”.

I am reminded of the story of two individuals that visited a sick friend in the hospital.  The first friend said “If there is anything I can do just let me know”.  The second individual wished him well and then went to his sick friend’s home and mowed the grass.
