PhotoHunt: Sad


The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Sad".

An angry, mentally-ill homeless man argues with a tree.

****

But on another, less Sad, note:
As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So while I have your attention, I'd like you to click on this graphic. The link will take you to The Breast Cancer Site, where by clicking on the pink button, you will help donate free mammograms for women in need. This is totally for real. It doesn't cost you a penny. This is how it works: The Breast Cancer Site is sponsored by a number of different companies who donate free mammograms to indigent women based on the number of clicks on that little pink button. The sponsors gain exposure because you see their logos and might be interested enough to check them out. But you don't have to. All you have to do is click and then go on your way.

During the month of October, if they get enough clicks to earn 500 mammograms, their premier sponsor, Bare Necessities, will donate an additional 200 mammograms. But it takes 45,000 clicks to earn one mammogram, people. So everyone's help is needed. Your click will be counted only once a day, so please click every day. While you're there, you'll notice other tabs at the top of the page where you can click to benefit childhood literacy, rainforest preservation, shelter animals, fight hunger, and more. All at no cost to you. You can click through every tab on the site in under 60 seconds. That's all it takes. Unless you decide to shop. :-) Please click and help save lives. And tell your friends. Thank you!

Okay, I'm getting off my soapbox... for now. :-)

Oh - that photo is sad indeed.

Thanks for including the post on breast cancer. I lost a sister to cancer which the doctors believe originated in the breasts and spread so rapidly there was little that could be done. She was a rather young mother of teenagers. So ladies, take care of yourselves and get the periodic checkups. And everybody, bookmark the site and click daily.

That is sad... I've always imagined what it would feel like being alive and strong yet not in control of my mental faculties. I can only hope that he doesn't have lapses of lucidness where he has a chance to despair over his loss.

Sad....oh so sad. But I tend to wonder just what is really going through their minds. I'm just that way.

My photo hunt is a 'drawing of sad'...stop by, won't you?

Hope your weekend is treating you well.
