A loved one recently used the word “suffering” while expressing their thoughts on my situation. Yes, it does feel like agony at times, but I no longer embrace that word as a part of my personal terminology, therefore, I affirm that by making it known to others.
How can anyone know what our wants/needs are unless we convey them?
Furthermore, how do we go about conveying something we ourselves might not even know??
In an effort to create a sense of community during a time of isolation and uncertainty, the Pediatric Pain Warrior Program held a virtual talent show on March 29 via video conference call.
A total of 13 performers showcased their talents, including singing, dancing, archery, and art.
“It was so great to see these kids connect with one another in such a positive way! You could see how empowering it was for these kids to share their talents with each other and to have a platform to do so,” says Beth Young, whose daughter, Emma Parcells, participated in the talent show. “When I heard my daughter sing and be happy, it made me cry. In these uncertain times for us all, I watched these kids coming together and supporting each other in such a positive way. It was the best distraction from what we have to face every day.”
