“We are not “Epileptic,” but we are people with Epilepsy. Epilepsy isn’t something that should disable a person. There are ways to overcome the pain of dealing with Epilepsy, no matter how badly you suffer from it. It takes time and effort, but it isn’t impossible.
Uplift, Empower, Overcome.”– Amanda M. Krzywonski.
I started this post with a quote I came across while surfing the web that I thought it speaks best today. Purple day is back to Tripoli and it’s everyone’s duty to spread the seed of awareness.
I wore purple to school today and I urged my sister and friends to do so and was so excited as to explain the reason behind the color. Just like last year, “We love Tripoli” has made it a remarkable occasion that started with a video about purple day and epilepsy followed by a presentation with a special participation of the young talented Sirine Hamzeh and it ended with a thank you speech from my friend Hassan O & certificates of attendance.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the event today but I was there in heart and mind. I’m really proud of that small group that is growing bigger by the time, a group that’s trying to pave the way for awareness to spread.
In the hopes of getting the attention of a larger group, our aim should be focused on schools next year and try to engage different activities related to purple day. March is really a special month. From Woman’s day to Teacher’s day to Mother’s day to Purple day and spring all the way, what more can I say?
