The event I was planning for about one year finally took place, just as I had imagined it would. Last night more than 100 participants in the Lake Havasu City Relay for Life event walked the gauntlet of Wings and found their Wings.
I had never felt such an outpouring of love as I felt on that high school track as total strangers hugged with such sincerity that the love flowed between them effortlessly.
I will try to get the balance of the Wings photos uploaded so that the cancer survivors and the children who were there in support of their loved ones can locate an image of the Wings they claimed as their own. I’m sure there will be many testimonials from the recipients in the coming days, weeks and even months, as they begin to confirm what I have always known, you can really “feel” the power of love when wrapped in the wings of an angel.
Many thanks to all of those who helped make my dream become a reality. I could never have pulled off such a fete if not for the unselfish generosity of time, money and unconditional love of the many volunteers and other contributors. Thank you, you know who you are.
Special thanks to Peter Schuman. Peter has given of his skills to produce a video of the making of the Wings and results of this labor of love. I will do my best to make sure you get the chance to view this when it becomes available. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even see it on the Orpah show!
