Cancer Warriors and Cancer Survivors, There is a Moving and Inspirational Dedication to You in Downtown Boise (Photos)
The Boise Greenbelt never ceases to amaze me. I am constantly exploring what the 25 mile pedestrian trail has to offer and always seeing, discovering and finding new things. The other day I came across a moving set of quotes and artful pieces to encourage, relate to and inspire cancer survivors and cancer warriors who are still fighting. A couple of people in my family have passed after a long hard battle with cancer. My grandfathers battle was a hard one to watch and after one heck of a fight, eventually passed from it. Walking through and absorbing the words and the weight behind them was moving and I couldn't help but get emotional.
The Richard & Annette Bloche Cancer Survivor Plaza is located at the far end of Julia Davis Park across from Whole Foods. It was designed to take visitors on a reflective journey through the 'Positive Mental Attitude Walk'. The walk takes you on a path surrounded by inspirational and instructional messages. The area is also surrounded by very deliberate and thought out plants for their textures, sounds, fragrances and vibrant colors. One of the boards describes their significance saying: blue for peace and trust, red for vitality, orange for optimism, yellow for contentment, green for growth, and white for purity and wholeness.
I would encourage you to visit the plaza yourself. Until you make the visit, here are the visuals to be experienced.
