Every day is precious.

I thought I would go a little off subject tonight.

Last night I attended a football match and before the match there was an event called the Field of Women Live 2010.  It is an event where 14,000 men & women assembled on the football field to represent the number of people who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.  It was a very moving event and even though I have not been touched by this particular disease, it was a reminder of the fragility of life.  

I was fortunate enough to be there with my daughter and her daughter.  It was such a good thing to share.

We didn't win the football match but we did have a great night. 
 The photos are not really good but the first one shows the people moving from the stands onto the field.

The second photo was taken when the stadium lights were turned off and the people on the field turned their coloured lights on.

This stadium holds 90,000 people although it was no where near full the atmosphere was fabulous.

Lovely photos Dian, and great that you took the time to participate in something like this, especially on such a miserable night as it was in Melbourne that night. Thanks.
