She smiles knowing they are there waiting for her to speak and to announce renewed fighting into one of man kinds worst enemies ever faced. Adjusting her headset she begins….
Ladies and gentlemen! I welcome you today to this gathering to announce that very soon we will be taking up arms again! We are in the midst of preparations, we are in the midst of drawing out combat plans in the on going conflict still ahead. We are preparing, hundreds if not thousands of troops and loyal followers! We are in the midst of yet still, a fight that has taken one too many away from us, and yet many more are being saved each day that passes by. We are making ready for the call again to duty, we are making ready yet for another conflict yet to be seen by all.
As the Honorable Right Admiral of my own team, we are making battle plans, we are making ready to once again charge headlong into battle! We are preparing, we are getting new armor and weapons ready to which I have provided to my warriors! We are ready to step out and to declare VICTORY!
We all know the story of David and Goliah, how little David took a pebble, put it into his sling shot and felled the giant Goliah! We are the DAVIDS, the giant we have known as cancer will be felled in a single shot! We will rejoice knowing we have felled this giant of an evil ever known to mankind once and for all.
My fellow relayers, lift up your eyes and know that very soon, we will head into battle and come out in victory once again! We will march, we will sing our songs of victory! We will once again, mount an offensive along with the American Cancer Society’s research for a cure and to ensure it’s funding again and again!
We will march along side our survivors, our caregivers in victory, we will march in memory of those we have lost and to remember who we are fighting for! We shall over come once and for all defeat cancer at it’s roots. We will not give up, we will fight like no tomorrow, we will continue our vigilance, and to stem the tide ever closer to victory in the final battle that waits us ahead.
My fellow relayers, the time has come to wage war, the time has come to be victorious again!
*The crowd erupts into thunderous applause and cheers as she leaves the podium to mingle with those gathered and to smile at all of those and to give them hugs and words of encouragement.*
