The 10:00 post - #5 Blogathon 2006, Yo.

Seeing as how I'm blogging for Relay For Life, I thought it would be appropriate to blog about this extremely cool thing that ACS has created. They now have a virtual Luminary Ceremony online where you can light a luminary for friends and loved ones who have battled cancer and are either currently fighting or have survived or lost their fight.

I know they would love to see countless bags out there as a tribute to everyone who has gone through this. It can bring the battle home and create an online and lasting tribute to those who have been through it. The Relay bags we make at the events are beautiful as you can see from the many photos on the Relay flickr sites that exist, but they burn out after a few hours and are gone. Yeah, it's a cyber thing. But as you can see by the hundreds that have been created before word has really even gotten out, it is a meaningful thing to those who have learned about it. Consider making an online luminaria for someone you love. And pass the word on.
