The Warriors' Stone
as children, we gave valentines to our classmates.
growing up, we learned about "Heart Month" - a time to focus on heart disease.
feeling invincible, we found our very own heart-mate, our one and only valentine.
later, we learned about BAVs and aneurysms, and wondered why we had never heard of it.
one went into the OR and the other waited as our heart-mate had open heart surgery.
some remained in the fight to overcome BAV and aneurysm.
Yes, February is still about valentines, chocolate and flowers.
For some, it may be the month their hearts were saved.
And, for some, this month our hearts are broken.
