As I glance at my calendar, I see that today is Red Day.
Red Day. I head downstairs to the laundry room to grab the red shirt I washed yesterday. I’m going to need it today.
Red Day. What does this mean? It’s not women’s heart health awareness day, or Red Ribbon Week, where schools talk to students about being drug and alcohol free. No, today has nothing to do with these worthy causes.
|Our RED DAY painting project|
Today is Red Day, where we wear red, talk about red, sing about red and play with red. We are teaching the color red at preschool today!
RED. Today it’s just a color.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if all our colors of awareness were someday just colors? If heart disease didn’t have the color red for awareness because it didn’t exist?
I’m thinking the same thing about PINK. I love pink. Emmy’s favorite color is pink. I would love pink to just be pink. Pink buttons and bows, pink castles and pink sunsets.
What would life be…without the month of October saturated with pink? Without the need for breast cancer awareness? Imagine life without breast cancer. I pink it would be a dream come true.
