Creating can happen anywhere.

“With every choice you create the life you’ll live; with every decision you design it.”Mollie Marti, Walking with Justice: Uncommon Lessons from One of Life's Greatest Mentors

Today I had the privilege of being the MC for a great fundraising event. invites members of the community to raise money by having their heads shaved. It is a sign of support for young cancer victims.

The youngest participant was an 11 year old boy but it was a 14 year old girl with long blond locks who really impressed me. She couldn’t rememebr her last haircut and was donating her hair to make wigs for cancer survivors. It took a lot of courage. Her teacher was so inspired he decided to take the challenge too.

We don’t realize how much of our identity is in our appearance. Some participants talked about the empowerment, others about the necessity of letting go and being in the moment. A man said it was much easier to have his head shaved than it had been to ask those around him to support him financially in his goal. One mother found it was an opportunity to discuss with her young children about the reality that faces those who are sick and also to show her children that it’s good to give without expecting anything in return.

I was very touched by the stories I heard and the people I met today. They were real. For someone who lives for an authentic human connection, this was an all you can eat buffet.
