Now, there may be some nay-sayers who don't understand what greek life is all about. Trust me, I was once one of them before joining my freshman year of college. I met and became sisters with many wonderful women - I'm not saying we all loved each other and were BFFs, but for the most part everyone
A sorority does not mean you are buying your friends, its not being hazed, its not being told who you can and can't be friends with, it does not mean you're rich, it does not mean you're better than everyone else. It means that you have a group of people with similar interests that you can rely on, it means sisterhood, it means giving back to your community, it means putting other's needs first, it means you are never alone.
So, Saturday took me back to my collegiate days of chanting and cheering. The young, the old, the collegiate, the alumnae all joined in to sing and show our pride. There were girls present that had received a bid just the day before and there was also a women celebrating 50 years of sisterhood - how amazing that someone stays so active in an organization for so long. That is my aspiration - to celebrate 50 years of sisterhood, to be a part of such an amazing organization, to support such a wonderful cause (breast cancer research) and make an impact in our little sorority world.
I can just imagine what collegiates think to see someone celebrating 50 years - crazy to say, this coming December will be 10 years for me! I'm a fifth of the way there! The kids in college think I'm old at 27 - heck, I say life is just beginning!
