Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.
As many of you know, I am a fan of odometer moments. Today is a special Visual Soliloquy odometer moment of #1000. I had no idea on October 4, 2010 when I began the practice of visual soliloquies that I would ever do 100 of them, let alone 1000. For many of the odometer moments in the visual soliloquies, I was very mindful about choosing an image/quotation combination to match the occasion.
Today is no exception. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been reaching into my community and I was nominated to participate. After watching this video, I decided to accept that nomination, to donate to ALS Canada, and to nominate some friends that I thought might be up to the challenge. I chose today’s quote because I thought it summed up the power of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge with each individual contributing a drop which collectively have made an ocean of awareness for those living with ALS and funding to forward research, treatment options, and strategies for living with ALS.
