Leaving the Syracuse Crunch hockey game in downtown Syracuse last Friday night, a bright building stood out among the usual skyline as my dear wife Karen and I walked from the Onondaga County War Memorial to our car parked in our favorite little lot a block away.
It loomed, in fact, I’d say.
I grabbed my iPhone 6 and stalked it as we made our way.
When it peeked between the Cathedral at Columbus Circle and the old Mitzpah Towers across the Street, I liked that perspective.
I caught up with Karen exclaimed my fascination for the beauty of my newfound glow.
She explained how it was pretty in pink for breast cancer awareness month.
It first came ablaze at this time last year, according to a column on syracuse.com by my friend Sean Kirst.
It certainly changed the tenor of downtown in the moment.
Karen also said that there was also some discussion that some folks don’t like the pink awareness concept, saying it’s an empty gesture and doesn’t do anything to advance breast cancer research.
I said that I thought everybody talking and thinking about breast cancer research cannot hurt the efforts.
Do you like the bright pink building in downtown Syracuse, and why or why not? Do you think the pink awareness project helps breast cancer research, and why or why not?
