30 Seconds

30 seconds is all it took.

All it took to bring tears to my eyes.

And a wave of memories rush over me at once.

Maybe because it has touched my life so closely.

My mother.


My aunts - two of them.

My friends - countless.

People whose names I know well.

People whose names I may have never heard.

I stood up to Cancer.

Did you?

Will you?

It took only 30 seconds for the tears to flow. It took only 30 seconds for the memories to flood.
