the veterans in your life as well as countless others both at home and serving
overseas in order to protect us and our families. There are many ways you can
thank a veteran; you can make an appearance on memorial day and cheer them on
as they walk past, you can make donations to organizations that support

their service and you could also write a letter expressing your gratitude for
all the things they do to keep us safe.
Breast cancercan affect anyone. Most women fear it. Even
those who are able to access education and health insurance find it a difficult
subject and many women are fearful of making breast examinations and try to
avoid them. For those who are poor and uneducated helping them to identify
early symptoms while there is still a chance of a cure and educating them about
treatment can be very difficult. Women especially, need to work together to help
overcome these fears and work together to find a cure, whether it be by sharing
experiences, educating or fund raising for research.
The Real Meaning of Easter
Easter is a very
happy time in the church’s calendar because it means that the
Lord has been resurrected. He rose from the dead and this is our true and
divine proof that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. The Make a Difference
Foundation wants to celebrate this Easter in a way that sheds light on the true
meaning of the holiday, but also in a way that gives to those of us who need it
most. In the spirit of Christianity, Easter should be a time of celebration as
well as a time of giving.
As you sit down to your bountiful Thanksgiving feast of
turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and assorted pies, it is important to
remember that everyone else is not as fortunate as you are. There are people
who will be reduced to waiting outside of a shelter to provide a meal for their
families and others who are simply alone and adrift in the world, with no
family to share the occasion with.
It's easy to get bogged down during the holiday season worrying
about things that simply aren't very important.
(Why we celebrate?)
In a world of war and civil unrest, an often forgotten and
under-appreciated aspect of our lives is the American Veteran. We are all, if even indirectly, affected by
the actions of the heroic soldiers that take to the battlefield in pursuit of
our freedom and liberty. On November 11
each year, history affords us the opportunity to give our thanks.
