Helping women with chronic illnesses

Endometriosis Blog: Let’s Take A Moment To Learn About How Blog Action Day Will Address The Issue Of Poverty!

Writing a blog, for me, is about more than just sticking to one topic day in and day out. While this blog focuses on endometriosis and other chronic illnesses, I think it’s important to participate in events that can have an impact beyond the day-to-day struggles we as chronically ill patients face.

For those of us who routinely have enough food to eat, have a home to live in, and do not live in fear for our day-to-day safety and security, it’s hard to imagine what it’s like to live in poverty. Whatever challenges we may face, I believe it’s important to remember those less fortunate than us and do what we can to make this a better world for all.

I hope you’ll take a moment to view the following video. The more we can get the word out about this event, the better.

I’m posting the following video in preparation for Blog Action Day on October 15, 2008. To learn more about Blog Action Day, just click on the Blog Action Day graphic on the right sidebar of the blog. This year’s topic is poverty. Let’s get a conversation going about this important topic.
