Cut for the Cure

Cut for the Cure was an idea I had to raise money for Relay for Life. Students bought a ticket at a chance to cut my hair off. J.P. a very nice young lady that I'm so proud of as a JROTC student and an all-around good person won the chance. At her lunch on the cafeteria stage, she got to shear off my hair. I'm so proud of our students for raising $521.02 for Relay for Life. The ponytail will be sent to Locks of Love. Because the student is under 18 and I do not have her permission to show her image on my blog, her identity is pixillated. I'm very proud of her and so glad that the student who won, was someone I could trust behind my back with sharp scissors! I wanted someone I really liked to get to do it, and it was. :)

If you reach down deep into the center of things, even sad and awful things, you can still pull out something redeaming. Maybe not in the moment, and maybe not immediately, but there are ways. This was my way to make two good things come out of one really bad thing.

J. I love you to pieces. I wish I could say I understand how hard yesterday was for you, but that is clearly not possible. Let be said instead that I know that it WAS hard. I wish I could take some of the pain for you. Your courage (and real courage is only possible with real fear) is beautiful.
