For many months, I have been following the story of a little boy named Ethan Powell who had leukemia. Last week Ethan passed away and today at 3p.m. his parents asked everyone to release a blue balloon from their home in his memory. Below are a couple of pictures of the balloon released here in Missouri. This story really touched me not only because he was an infant, but seven years ago I lost my older sister to leukemia.
Balloon Beginning It's JourneyMust look closely, but you can see the balloon in the center of the picture.
