Day of the Dead Bead

Michael, USA

Dia De Muertos, or Day of the The Dead, is a time for us to honor those who have passed on. It is a lively and cheerful time to reflect on the life and memories of those we have loved, and it is a time to draw them closer to us, knowing that they are always nearby. This glass bead features items associated with this tradition. On a black sparkling background, with see a row up the center, which alternates with sugar skulls, and marigolds, both of which play a big part of this time. And, at the sides of the bead, circling the silver tips, we see bunting, in shades of purple, gold, and red.

My name is Michael Nylander, and I have a disability known as Strumpell Lorrain Syndrome, which makes it difficult for me to walk, and has me requiring the use of a walker. Still though, I do not let this stand in my way. I am the type of person that is always making others happy, and always reaching for my dreams, no matter what. I feel it is always important to reach for ones dreams, and to not let anything hold us back. Life is an adventure. And that adventure can be wonderful, if we always remember to reach for our dreams.
