I Believe in friends
I Believe in prayer
I Believe that one person can make a difference
I Believe that together we can lift someone up
I Know that my small town Believes
This week has brought about an almost unprecedented show of support for one of our own. News has spread that a much beloved citizen is facing a 2nd battle with the cancer he survived 20 years ago. Not only is he a teacher, husband, father, and friend - He has been an unstoppable Cancer Society promoter for those 20 years. It shouldn't be a surprise as he has helped so many over the years, that now in his hour of need the community has banded together to help him.
Almost my entire facebook news feed is status updates of "I BELIEVE". Organizers of a Benefit scheduled for next weekend can almost not keep up with the offers of support.
It makes me proud to be Daren's friend, proud to live in this town, and proud to annouce that I BELIEVE he will beat this again.
I hope you will all BELIEVE with me.
