What wrong with this …. The stereotypes
Picture a sweetly smiling child, with a little twinkle in her eye, some colour on her cheeks and a beautifully shaped bald head. That’s the image of a child who has had treatment for cancer, and it doesn’t look bad, but it is what it is … An image, just a snapshot, possibly edited for visual effects.
Then there’s the others, a pale almost opaque face, dark circles encompassing pain-filled eyes, cracked lips, a head covered in random tufts of hair. This too is an image of a child who is having treatment for cancer, and it looks bad, but it is what it is … An image, just a snapshot, possibly edited for visual effects.
One filled with hope and victory and the other filled with fear and defeat. Both carry a certain truth, a reality, both are valid. When seen separately they create illusions, they loose the journey, they create a false image of what this is, there’s an honor that is lost in seeing only one.
The problem with seeing only one is that the awareness, the honestly, the true soul of this ruthless journey is lost.
This is truly a journey of hero’s.
