APS Awareness Month ~ Day 14: If you've ever been wondering why the dragonfly was chosen as the official symbol (or #mascot) of #APS, today's graphic will explain! The #dragonfly, although delicate looking, is strong and fast. It represents living in the moment and living every day to its fullest. We believe this is the PERFECT symbol to represent APS patients!! What do you think? Please share today's graphic along with the hashtags #GOBURGUNDY and #APSAWARENESS on all your social media accounts! Please come back tomorrow for a new graphic! — thinking about dragonflies.
