Back to Kids' Voices Liz DeMello
I have been making and distributing gray ribbons. I wrote the following poem to distribute with them.

Ribbon The Gray Ribbon

The gray is for the gray clouds hanging overhead,
All of the finger pricks are the color red,
The silver is for all the dreams and prayers that we send,
Please wear this ribbon in hope that diabetes will end!
