Grace: A Child's Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery

Today, all day long, I have been thinking of Mr. Nunn. Today is Mr. Nunn’s birthday. Today is not a happy day for him, like all birthdays should be. You see, Mr. Nunn’s birthday is here… but his son Max is not.

Rather than attempt to repeat Mr. Nunn’s eloquent words, I will give you a link.

I imagine if each parent in our country could feel in their heart what Mr. Nunn is feeling today, we would fund research for childhood cancer in an instant.

In an Instant.

Somewhere, as human beings who inhabit this Earth, we seem to have lost sight of the pure, innocent, and needy. We will spend hours in front of the tube watching “reality” shows of people behaving badly, but for some reason, the media steers a clear path around the subject of childhood cancer. Our minds get clogged. Our hearts get clogged. When everything gets clogged, life becomes meaningless.

Sometimes it’s easier to get lost in the World of Meaninglessness than it is to look at truth. If we stare truth in the face, it means we need to be accountable.
