My hat is off to you Laurey! You were so friendly and gracious when I met you at the Power of the Purse luncheon a couple of years ago. I had no idea you had battled cancer, and I think you are really special to make this cross-country ride in hopes of raising awareness to ovarian cancer. I hope you have a safe and successful journey!

Laurey, I don't know where you get the time or the energy to do all of the things you do and you do them with a great attitude. My thoughts prayers and spirit will be with you on your ride. I wish I could ride along with you. You are truly an inspiration. Thanks!!

Can you prove it doesn't?
I can twist Bible passages to support any nonsensical belief, so how is this one any different?
