Go Red For Women Today

The American Heart Association

The American Heart Association has made the first Frisday of every year as National Wear Red Day to bring awareness to heart disease that has become the number one killer of women. It’s only fitting and proper that we join the efforts to fight this deadly disease that kills half a million women every year.

By wearing red not only on the day designated, we will continue to honor those who inspite of having the disease continue to live productive lives. To all these exemplary women, I dedicate this poem by e.e. cummings.

 
i carry your heart with me by e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
