Today’s topic is:
Recently various petitions have been circulating the Diabetes Online Community, so today let’s pretend to write our own. Tell us who you would write the petition to – a person, an organization, even an object (animate or inanimate) – get creative!! What are you trying to change and what have you experienced that makes you want this change?
When I first read this prompt, nothing really jumped into to my head to write about. I am new to the Diabetes Online Community and am completely in the dark about what these circulating petitions are all about. So I spent most of the day trying to think of something to write about. After reading a lot of really good responses from some of the other bloggers I follow, I think I have figured out a good petition to write. Maybe a blogger has written one similar to this, but I don’t know nor do I care because this one is near and dear to me and my situation.
We the undersigned, would like to formally address all the Viruses of the world. We believe that it is a right, as citizens of Earth, to be able to live a Diabetes free life and would kindly ask of you to no longer trigger autoimmune responses cause our immune systems to target our pancreases. It is too late for people like me, you have already done your damage. But it is not too late for younger generations and future generations. Spare them your wrath and allow them to have healthy pancreases so they can remain ignorant of the struggles associated with diabetes. So hear me viruses, leave our bodies alone!
