Thanksgiving is one of the few holidays that doesn’t involve religion. no matter what you believe in you can always be thankful for everything that you have. This interactive board gives 2 west residents the chance to reflect and write down something that they are thankful for. Remember that this holiday is not all about the turkey but about being thankful for what you have the ones you love.
October was breast cancer awareness month. To celebrate 2 West had a bulletin board with facts about breast cancer. One of the facts was how many women are diagnosed every year. Another was that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed. This board also gave facts on how to detect breast cancer. This board helped to raise awareness about breast cancer to all residents on 2nd floor.
Fears never go away, so instead of trying to eliminate them find a way to control them. This world is filled with so many things that can affect our emotions, but the only way it can affect you is if you let it. Be strong and make your butterflies fly in formation because it can be a beautiful thing!
