It is truly amazing that candidates are running for President and the election isn’t for 19 months. What’s even more amazing is that Elizabeth Edwards is facing a different kind of race, one that her life depends on and one that she’s is determined to win. It takes courage for anyone going through treatment for an illness, but to do it so publicly is courageous.
I believe that when pilgrims commit to their journey amazing results transpire. Elizabeth Edwards is going on a long pilgrimage with no end in sight. If her cancer is treatable but not curable we’re looking at ongoing treatment to keep things status quo, that’s a long road and a heavy load. Her commitment to her family is unwavering. I’ve seen interviews, read articles and followed her journey and I hope she knows that there are many other pilgrims in the world willing to help carry the load, even if all we can do is hold a healing space for her.
