Project Purple, Day 2

20131102-223613.jpg

So what does this look like in real life?

I’ll give you a school example. The middle school I work at has about 800 students and probably at least 100 faculty and staff. That means statistically, there would be about 34 people who develop Epilepsy at some point in there life. Need a more concrete example? During the first period of the day, roughly half of our classrooms would have a person who is/was/will be effected by Epilepsy.

It’s kinda crazy when you think about it that way – so why does it often feel like we’re the only one? Fear. Embarrassment. Worry.

And THAT is what this…”Project Purple” – National Epilepsy Awareness Month…is all about.
