Day 14: Today!

Today is November 14...World Diabetes Day!

We haven't seen the sun here in Winnipeg in what feels like ages. So, what a nice surprise today when I woke up to a beautiful sunny day with a blue sky!

The international symbol for diabetes is a blue circle. This symbol was originally designed when the United Nations formed the resolution for diabetes which is a campaign to address the diabetes epidemic that is set to overwhelm health care systmes around the world. The circle is meant to symbolise unity, which is required to make a difference. The colour blue was used as it represents the sky and the UN flag.
