I first heard about Shear Hope from my friend Sarah who is a previous Hope Giver. I met her only once before her head shaving event. Afterward, I thought “Wow, I could never do that.” As time passed I began to think.

I thought of the toll cancer can take on someone’s life; not just them but their family and friends too. I thought of the people I knew who had been touched by cancer. I thought of photos of my mom at age 11 with a shaved head from having a brain tumor. I began to count: 1, 2, 3 … and the counting continued. As I counted family, friends, and co-workers, the number continued to rise to 10. Then a few more names and faces came to my mind. I realized that all of us probably know at least one person touched by cancer. And I began to think some more.

I thought of all the images around us which portray beauty. Since I am a teacher , I thought of my high school students. I thought of the pressures from movies, T.V., magazines and especially peers. I want my students to know that they are beautiful for who they are inside.

“I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well.” Psalms 139:14.

I did not feel this way when I was in school, and I know times have not changed. I thought what better way than to set an example by my actions and not mere words. My hope is to let others know they are beautiful, regardless of their situation.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
