I don't know

...what her name is. I have not met her, either. She is the coworker of a friend, and is someone they are all worried about. She is in a fight for her life against Breast Cancer. My friend told me there was a plan to create a basket of gifts, and she wanted to commission a journal. I was glad to, I said, but only if I could donate it. Some things needs to be given, not sold. I created this:

Please take a moment to send good thoughts and prayers her way...whoever she is, wherever she lives. She is one of so many fighting this battle.

And please, take a moment, click here. One click is all it takes to provide free mammograms for those unable to afford them:
The Breast Cancer Site

And please, lastly, be vigilant. Take care of yourself. Whoever you are, wherever you are.

2,974/ 24/ 90/ 1

2,974 lives lost.
24 missing.
Citizens of 90 different countries.
One September morning.

I remember.

Remember September Mail Art Call:

Remember September is a mail art project which was developed by Gail Ellspermann to commemorate, on an annual basis, the tragic attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. The idea is to decorate an envelope with artwork remembering and honoring the victims, rescue workers, and countless volunteers affected by 9/11. Then, bring it to your post office on September 11 and ask for a hand cancel.

The envelopes will never be opened so you may include a private note, poem, or prayer as part of your memorial. The envelopes are being collected and will be exhibited at various venues.

Create a piece of "mail art" on any size envelope which is relevant to 9/11, the victims, heroes, and/or events of the day.

Use any type of media, such as: collage, digital art, crayon, marker, pencil, paint

Address your envelope to: Remember September, PO Box 793, Katonah, NY 10536

Mail your envelope on September 11, 2008, if at all possible. Please mail no later than 9/18/07.

Include your name and snail mail address on the BACK of the envelope to be included in a mailing of posters of the 2008 submissions and to be entered into a drawing for a free CD of all images (100 will be given away)
