That’s Why we Walk

Filed under: Breast Cancer & Leukemia Awareness — by Sue @ 2:15 pm

I bought a book in the States called “Why we walk” & it’s people that’ve walked in the 60 mile walk in the States for breast cancer. The CD that comes with it has a song is called “Why we walk” by Phil & Julie Vasser – it really touched me:

There’s an empty seat at the dinner table
where a mother used to sit.
She was 34 years old, full of life and dreams
and two small kids.
There’s a young man with a tear in his eye and a pink riboon on his coat
in memory of the only love he’d ever known.

There’s a lady looking in the mirror without a single strand of hair.
She barely recognized the woman standing there.
She’s waging a silent war against an enemy inside
and putting up the fight of her life

That’s why we walk.
We walk to remember.
We walk to celebrate.
That’s why we walk.
Leaning on each other
and holding on to faith.
For those who are gone and those who live on.
We honor them all
& that’s why we walk.

She lays in a cold white room in a baby-blue paper gown,
anticipating what the x-rays might have found.
Then she hears the words that always stop you on a dime
and prays that they found it in time.


For life, for love, for one another,
for him, for her, there’s strength in numbers.
