Pain Awareness Month 2015 – Mid Month Review with Feature 7- The ACPA- History of Pain Awareness Month

I wish I could share the goodness of the world with everyone. The people I’ve shared have been people who are making an impact in the lives of others despite their own complications. Illness, disability, pain, yet hope enough in their passion’s to keep going… for you.

Some of them I barely know in the sense of talking with them. A few of them, I’ve had less than an hour or so of combined time in conversation exchange. Having the gift of knowing and the ability to feel at higher levels than most, I was compelled to ask these people if I could share them, honor them, and feature them this month. Each one of them, by their own energy, gave me a piece of them, the part that let me show you who they are in spirit. It was by a glimpse of their own souls experiences that led me to reach out to them.
