Reach the Day - Day 1
|The following pages are snapshots taken of Kate Shafer's slide presentation for
Reach the Day participants. I was NOT smart enough to take these pictures! All the
credit goes to a fellow attendee, Dan Cohen. Dan has graciously agreed to allow me
to steal his photos and post them here, for anyone who is interested in reading them.
Dan's website is:
Please check it out, and drop him a line if you appreciated these slides. I, for one,
think he's a genius for having the presence of mind to photograph them!
|This is the photograph showing President Bush signing the Caroline Pryce-Walker Conquer Childhood
Cancer Act. The child to Bush's left is Eden, daughter of Rourke, that I mention often in these posts. The
two children to Bush's right, are Hannah and Duncan, the other two children I mention often. I firmly,
whole-heartedly believe that Eden's honest and soulful plea for her life...is what swayed several of the
hold-out senators. (including one from OH) Eden gave everything she had to attend RTD last year. She
made a difference.
She is missed.
|It wasn't until Dan shared these photographs with me, that I realized some of the slides contained the
photo you see above. When I saw it, I was so excited! If you can't tell, the photo in the lower R hand corner
is dear little Eden, and her father, Rourke, at last year's Reach the Day. As soon as I realized it, I called for
my daughters to come look. We all agreed that I simply had to try to focus in on it. Then...I happened to
switch to the next "slide". Apparently Dan thought it was an adorable picture too!
|Those glorious eyes....
