May the fourth be with you

Today is the unofficial holiday, “Star Wars Day“.  I did not exactly feel the force with me today but last week during the March of Dimes walk I really do think I felt it.  I looked around at the crowds and every one there had been impacted by the premature birth of a child.  Our stories may all be different but we have all loved, hoped and in some cases lost.   There were survivors walking among us but many of us walk in memory of our loved ones.

I saw people I have seen walk in years past.  Still walking, like we do, in memory of our lost loved ones. My heart broke for all the new faces I saw last week.  Every year I look into their eyes and wish I could take away the pain.  Hopefully in years to come there will be more survivors.

We will continue to walk if not for ourselves than for them . . .
