Some of you who know me, know that I begin each torch session by making two purple hearts and two butterflies for Beads of Courage. I'm very pleased to say that this week, I will be sending in to Beads of Courage: 160 Purple Hearts and 153 Butterflies. The purple hearts go to the children who have finished their treatments. The butterflies are given to parents who have lost a child. Here is a video I found on UTube that shows how the beads are used. Get out the kleenex. You are probably going to need more than one when you see the courage of these children.
