As mentioned in an earlier post, thanks to the hard work of the non-profit Canadian organisation May12th.org, we were treated to a spectacular show of powerful colour and light on the evening of May 12th 2013 as Niagara Falls turned blue for ME / CFS, purple for Fibromyalgia and green for Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.

Niagara Falls is breathtaking all by itself. Mr B and I were lucky enough to visit the Falls back in 2006 (before ME / CFS was part of my everyday life). The sheer power and force of the Falls’ water is incredible.

But seeing Niagara Falls all lit up in honour of the illnesses that cause so many of us so much pain, is simply amazing.

Did you stay up to see the show live either in person or via the Niagara Falls Live Webcam? Sadly with the time difference to the UK, I was asleep, but thanks to the stunning pictures taken by May12th.org, I don’t feel like I missed out at all.

You can see all the photos  here, the Facebook page of May12th.org.

A huge thank you to the May 12th Organisers who did all the hard work and made this happen. Do check out their website and Facebook page for more info and of course the all important pics!

For now, here’s another photo. This time Niagara is lit up in blue for ME / CFS.
