As you know, I am again participating in the WALK to END ALZHEIMER'S. Each year I carry a staff strung with purple ribbons, each ribbon has on it the name of someone I know, directly or indirectly, who has Alzheimer's or some other dementia.
They are like little prayer flags.
They are reminders of why we WALK. Why we are fighting this battle. It is not only my Mom...
