Over the weekend we did a walk to raise money for the hospital where Elliot spent the one week of his life.  This is the sixth year in a row that we have done the walk in honor of Elliot.

The morning of the walk Gavin looked at me and said,

“Mom.  I like doing Al’s Run but . . . . there are two things I don’t like about it.  First, it’s about Elliot, and that makes me sad.  Second . . . . well . . . . . I have to walk.”

Besides the walking piece, that’s pretty much exactly how I feel about it too.  I kind of love it when my kids can so easily put into words what everyone else is feeling.

As you walk, and this is the part that always makes me so emotional, you see the backs of all these shirts.  Most, maybe all, are graphics that represent these teams made up mainly of adults who have all come together in honor of one child.  Lots and lots and lots of those children are still alive.  Some of them are even wearing a special bright shirt with their own name on the back and walking with their families and loved ones.
