Color me purple because I’m here to raise awareness about Lupus

This is something I wrote a while back. It’s about strength in unity. As I think of how important today is, I feel as if this entry was always meant for today. I hope you feel the same.


There will be a day when pain will be no more, fear will go away, and there won’t be a reason to shed any tears.

Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but one day. As we wait, be strong not just for yourself, but for someone out there who needs it. The strength you radiate will reach far out to someone else. A domino effect will be set into motion. No longer apart, but united we stand.

Speak out and be heard. You never know who is listening, but one thing is for sure, our voices do make a difference.

Raising awareness for any cause starts with just one person.

May is National Lupus Awareness month. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of your body. Let’s teach each other about it and support those who live with it everyday.

Let’s put on purple and raise awareness!

For more information about lupus, you can visit the Lupus Foundation of America  site.

About me? I’m never good at these things, but here are the basics. I’m a journalism and film graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. I'm a dedicated digital content nerd with over eight years of experience in digital content management, content writing, copy editing, and project management. Currently, I'm a staff writer for The American Genius, and I manage my personal blog that advocates for epilepsy awareness. I LOVE to bake! I like to challenge myself to learn new decorating and baking techniques. And although I’d love to say I’ve mastered everything and have never burnt a dessert, it simply isn’t true.
