Everyone has the power to make a difference when it comes to Epilepsy. There is a “pay it forward” movement known online as #AJO in memory of a young woman, Alyssa Josephine O’Neil who died after having a seizure.
I love this movement. I especially love that it started in a very natural way – totally spontaneous. Totally awesome. In case you are unfamiliar, This story gives you a good background and you can also follow the movement on their Facebook – Forever in Our Hearts.
I feel totally proud of my Epilepsy Awareness Door at school, and of my effort to post every day here on my blog. I’m not sure if it’s a fluke, but I’ve gained 23 followers since I started my “Project Purple” posts. I guess it’s my little way of making a difference. Imagine if we all did a little…we could really make a difference, and it can be anything – time, a service offered, a small donation, a conversation, a listening and supportive ear. Anything. Just do something – we still have almost a week left in November!
