During College and Medical school, when I was studying to become a physician, (as did several other girlfriends physicians) I put my life on hold to pursue a medical career. Diana's early fairy tale life became the life that little girl's dream about, her tragic death the death that motivates many people to change, to create charities in her memory, to help those that she had helped during life, to create websites in the hopes of helping others deal with their losses.
that Diana had yet to realize the healing qualities that she possessed,
the ability to reach out with a touch, a hug, a smile, to help someone
with the strongest "medicine" known, the power of love. She was able to
break through barriers with those who were infirmed,
those who had been injured by land mines, those with Cancer or AIDS.
To quote the Princess:
the biggest disease
the world suffers from in this day and age
is the disease of people feeling unloved
and I know that I can give love for a minute,
for half and hour, for a day, for a month,
but I can give.
I am very happy to do that and I want to do that.
Diana, Princess of Wales
response to Diana Princess of Wales Tribute albums, the phenomenal merchandising
since her death (some charitable, much not), the anti-land mine treaty
signed in her memory, to quote from a People magazine article,
"She's gone, but she's like the gift that keeps on giving, her touch goes a long way."
This website was created to honor the memory of all of these friends and a Princess who could make someone feel better with a gentle touch, a spoken word, a warm embrace, to help people heal from their losses, find a way of giving back, and eventually move on with living.
