It’s Sunday morning and the faithful have gathered. Instead of being with the group at Hometown Friends Church, I’m with a crowd of 40,000 believers in Stumptown. The common belief at this gathering is that something needs to be done about breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is an annual event. It was six years ago that I walked the 5K with family for the first time. The event followed right on the heals of Cindy’s breast cancer diagnosis and surgery. I’m grateful for all the private dollars that are going into cancer research and treatment.

“Where’s the outrage?” was a sign a participant carried. I'm curious how we as a country justify spending more tax money in Iraq than we do on fighting cancer.
