The Scar Project – International Exhibition – Surviving Cancer. Absolute Reality.


The Scar Project – International Exhibition – Surviving Cancer. Absolute Reality..    

The Scar Project is a moving display of breast cancer survivors and the scars of their battles.
They are beautiful.
i would love to see this exhibition in Orlando.    

when one faces an adversity that leaves scars, there are two ways to handle the rest of one’s life…hide the scars because they might be “embarrassing,” or bare the scars, letting the world know about the battle won (or being won).    

like the ladies in the exhibition, i live life with the latter philosophy:    

dances with weapons

all warriors are proud of their scars

 

there is nothing to be embarrassed about.
nothing at all.
