Live it Right

Life is about making Something out of Nothing at all. If you're able to do that, you're able to do Everything.

Painted Life

Life is like a flower, painted to perfection, yet at the end it wilts, fragile as it is, only the stem left unbroken.

Fallen Leaves

Like the autumn leaves, we fall at times, only to find ourselves blown away by the wind, and thus we reach yet another place.

Okay, been wanting to research on this subject, not merely because of the Ribbon, but for the meanings behind the Ribbons. Honestly the meanings varied in different places, these are the generals of most places. But mostly, it all has something to do with some sort of cancer as far as I'm concern.

Different Colours. Different Meanings. Same Intentions.

Red: Symbol for both drug prevention and for the fight against AIDS.

Pink: Used to express support for women (and men) who are diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Blue: Symbol of prostate cancer and colon cancer awareness and Child Abuse Prevention.

Purple: It is worn by trade union members on Workers' Memorial Day (April 28), to commemorate workers killed, disabled, injured or made unwell by their work.

Green: Symbol for many campaigns, including environmental justice, cannabis-liberation, and agriculture.

Black: Symbol of popular grief.

Brown: Worn on the lapel for anti-tobacco, colon cancer (Brown ribbon is the alternate color, Dark blue is the official ribbon color), and colorectal cancer awareness.

Orange: For Human Rights.

White: Symbol of violence against women, safe motherhood, and other related causes.

Gray: Diabetes awareness. Brain cancer awareness. Asthma awareness [2]

Yellow: Symbol with various meanings, mostly associated with those waiting for the return of a loved one or of military troops who are temporarily unable to come home.

Pink & Blue: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

Hehe, that's all for today...=)
