Friday night our CYO walked all night long in the local Relay for Life.
The kids love it. They look forward to it with wild abandon and glee. And it’s a fun, safe, invigorating time even if it’s completely exhausting.
I have hundreds of pictures to post.
Even though I never actually post hundreds of pictures.
And then I wonder, why do I take so many pictures in the first place.
(And why don’t I resize them correctly?)
Some of these made my Facebook album. But Facebook is another dilemma for another day. (I have a thousand friend requests and am at the limit of friends for a long while now. So maybe I should have made a public person page. But… who am I to have a fan page?
(It’s not an overwhelming dilemma.)
But back to the Relay for Life.
Someone emailed me asking me if I was aware of this?
Yes, the American Cancer Society supports Planned Parenthood. Yet, it was with a stop-smoking grant, not funds for abortions.
So, I have mixed feelings about this. I have he feeling it will be an issue.
For now, this appears (to me at least) to be a relatively new concern. And if the kids are there and the Archdiocese is promoting the event, I will be out supporting them. As for the future of it, we’ll have to give this matter some more thought, prayer and research. No one wants to be supporting abortion rights with money raised to fight cancer.
At the same time, I support anyone and everyone who is trying to quit smoking. But that’s another story, for another time.
