Today I Wore Pink ALLISON BRIGHT DOLCY Today I wore pink. I remember my heart sinking when the call came whispering that my mother had been diagnosed. I remember a week later the unimaginable call that my aunt had been diagnosed too. I remember feeling helpless. Wanting to help and not knowing how. I remember being angry at God. Not my mother. You will not let this happen to my mother. Not fair, God, You are not playing fair….. Today I wore pink. I learned that in her pain was my breaking too. I learned that she belongs to Him and that no physician on earth could care for her better that God can. I learned that her sisters are her fiercest champions. They are sister, mother and friend to her all in one. Today I wore pink. I honor the power of a faithful God. I honor Him because “He sent His word and healed them.” My mother included. I honor the mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and wives still battling. My heart overflows in gratefulness for her life and His goodness, so today I wore pink. Allison Bright Dolcy is the daughter of Arlene Bright who is an accountant in Brown University’s Controller’s office. Fall 2015 19
