Slow Dance

I wish there was a way to help our cancer stricken people in OUR country just by clicking and sending the same forms to our friends. I wish HELP were a CLICK away!


This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York
Hospital. It was sent by a medical doctor - Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM. SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids On a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rainSlapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.Don't dance so fast. Time is short.The music won't last.

Do you run through each dayOn the fly?When you ask How are you?
Do you hear the reply?When the day is doneDo you lie in your bed With the next hundred choresRunning through your head?You'd better slow downDon't dance so fast.Time is short.The music won't last.

Ever told your child,We'll do it tomorrow?And in your haste, Not see his sorrow?Ever lost touch,Let a good friendship die Cause you never had timeTo call and say,"Hi"You'd better slow down . Don't dance so fast.Time is short. The music won't Last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day, It is like an unopened gift....Thrown away.

Life is not a race.Do take it slowerHear the musicbefore the song is over.

FORWARDEDE-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All: PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know - even to those you don't know! It is the request of a special girl whowill soon leave this world due to cancer.This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. She'll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own. By you sending this to as many people as possible,you can give her
And her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to,The American Cancer Societywill donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we canat least send it to 5 or 6 --- (just think, it could be you one day). It's not even your money, just your time!PLEASE PASS ON AS A LAST REQUEST Dr. Dennis Shields, Professor Department of Developmental and Molecular Biology

When I receive such emails before the end I decide to send it to some friends because most of the time the context is interesting or touching, but when I read the end, it is just a heavy force that doesn't let me to do it. I can't believe the stories. I should try to believe people.

Frank
how strange.My post of last friday was also about cancer.
Cancer is very personal to me as my son is genetically predisposed to some very rare cancers.And he's got to run a special test every 6 months to make sure everything is ok.
Not one day without my thinking of that.
