She is strong.

She is okay.

She will dance.

She will soar.

She will grow.

She will live.

p.s. On Saturday, April 15th, I covered the SUNY New Paltz Dance Marathon, which was an event dedicated to gathering donations for a family-oriented hospital called Maria Farreri. A young woman I interviewed told me a story about a little girl who she had met who said, “It’s okay. I’ve had cancer, but I’m strong.” Though she did not remember the girl’s name, that story stuck with her. It’s stuck with me, too. So, here’s to dancing to and for the kids that want to move and shake, but have to wait until they get better!
