Live Strong Bracelet:
Seeing Yellow, Spreading like Wildfire
Why is the Lance Armstrong
Live Strong bracelet spreading
like wildfire? Recently, my young daughter and all her friends
have started wearing these yellow rubber bracelets. It seems that
everyone is wearing one!
The answer? Two words: Itís simple and
ingenious. Inspired by the Nike bands worn by basketball
stars and Lance Armstrong's record six Tour de France victories,
the Live Strong Bracelet is everywhere, because people look up to
Lance Armstrong. And for a only a buck, we can raise millions of
dollars to battle cancer and have something symbolic and stylish
to show for it.
The Live Strong bracelet is a fad, it's a
movement, it's a remarkable phenomenon!
The Bright yellow Live Strong Bracelet is an inspiring symbol of
victory over and against incredible odds.
Besides being the color of the Maillot jaune, the yellow jersey
worn by the Tour de France winner (so often worn by Armstrong):
Live Strong bracelets represent power and strength manifesting
under the most adverse circumstances. Specifically, the overcoming
of cancer, which miraculously occurred for Armstrong, as well as
seeing him powerfully pushing his bicycle through the most arduous
and steep mountains to victory during the grueling Tour De France
again and again and again.
Again and again -you will see the live strong bracelet everywhere.
These live strong bracelets have a visibility that is a sign and
testament to fearlessness, empathy and service to those in need.
Live strong bracelets say, "We are not afraid of you Cancer,
you cruel thief of life. We will not hide, we shall not be driven
underground; on the contrary, like the golden sun at dawn we will
rise and overcome your darkness."
It sounds a bit sentimental, but the concept of the Live Strong
braclet hits me in the gut. Lance Armstrong has climbed those
mountains, again and again so we don't have to.
Isn't it beautiful? Why not buy five live strong braclets and
give them out to your friends? Heck, buy twenty! Since when has
twenty dollars been too much of a sum to give to the battle
against cancer. Think of it; A million people, a million dollars.
I've seen cancer in action, It has taken my father too early and
like Lance I wish he was still here, with a new lease on life. A
Lance Armstrong Live Strong Bracelet is like wearing a vision; an epiphany on your
wrist -It is another link in a golden chain of beautiful,
compassionate, authentic support. It's a victory lap en masse.
On my wall at home there hangs a giant poster of Lance Armstrong
thundering to his second victory in the Tour De France. I have
often looked to that picture and my live strong bracelet for
inspiration and motivation.
What is it that makes Lance and livestrong bracelets so
inspiring? On the flat open roads, he blends in like any other
cyclist, but up high in the mountains, where it gets grueling and
agonizing...that's where the yellow for courage, strength, incredible persistence
and the livestrong attitude comes out, like Clark Kent, the everyman
running into a phone booth and emerging as superman.
Wearing the yellow Live Strong bracelet
symbolizes Lance Armstrong and all the qualities that make human
