Elephants in Space - Part 2

"Courage" is an appropriate title for the suit bearing Jacob and Kat's artwork. I work with children all the time, and I am always aware of how brave they are. I hope this story brings you all some Hope, Courage and Unity in the times ahead, especially if you are dealing with serious illness.

Send me some feedback - feel free to comment, or give me a lead on a story of your own or that you might be aware of. I know I need all the inspiration I can get these days.

Elephants in Space

I chose to tell this story from a slightly different perspective, because I think the human factor is what I'm trying to capture in these narratives. I hope you'll approve when you see the next page.

There are several sources I used for this story, including releases from MD Anderson Cancer Treatment Centers and an article for CNN HEALTH written by Ashley Strickland. You can read more about this story and see a video of the suit's unveiling at

The second half of this story next Monday. meanwhile, I'm still looking for your input and suggestions!

Home Run, "the REST of the story..."

I should also mention, when telling this story, of how proud Central Washington's coach Gary Frederick was to have his team members perform such an outstanding example. This story was reported several times on local and national news, and Ellen Degeneres had the three players on her show to honor their accomplishment. There's more than one way to win a ball game.

I'm still looking for stories like this one - if you think you have a good example of people helping one another, please share it with me!

Home Run

Since the series is still big news to many people, I thought this story would be a good one to post while we all endure the last few days of the election. There's also a powerful message about sportsmanship and respect, which a lot of people will hopefully benefit from come the 9th. Don't forget to vote!
