The month of May is Lupus Awareness Month, among other things. Lupus is a bit of a mystery. It has been in my life for a long time, as my Mother suffered from the disease. However, this is not a sad post. I’m hoping to help, in my own tiny way, to bring more awareness to the disease.
Why wear purple and why bring awareness? The more people know about something, the more they care and are willing to help.
So to that end, I’ll be wearing purple on Friday May 18th, which is ‘Put on Purple Day.’ I’ve also made a children’s song about that wonderful color, purple! The video for that is below. I hope you will enjoy learning about the many things that can be purple and, perhaps, learn more about lupus, too. You can visit The Lupus Foundation of America or www.lupusawarenessmonth.org to find out more about Lupus Awareness Month and ‘Put on Purple Day.’
THE PURPLE SONG!
