Day 15 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Day 15 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Today Dave took this video in front of the Trump Office in Rosenberg. Yes, this is who I believe will make a great President for this Country of United States Of America. As I say “If you don’t do different nothing will change” and if you vote for Hillary you are voting for more of the same or worse.  You may not like him but I believe he will be the change America needs. Also good for the Veterans. Obama has had 8 years to make a difference for the Vets and it did not happen. Just saying.

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate 
Jesse Terrell to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.

Did You Know – 11/2/2015

  1. Global Warming – Hmmmm maybe notDid you know that NASA reported today that the amount of ice in the Antartica is growing. (Varney – Fox news)

The new Antarctic sea ice record reflects the diversity and complexity of Earth’s environments, said NASA researchers. Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, has referred to changes in sea ice coverage as a microcosm of global climate change. Just as the temperatures in some regions of the planet are colder than average, even in our warming world, Antarctic sea ice has been increasing and bucking the overall trend of ice loss.

“The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent,” Parkinson said.

Poem Friday 11/09/2012 – I will Not Be Able To Hold My breath For That Long

The excitement over, the election done
The President of America, Obama won

Disappointed, yes, I thought Romney was ahead
We got another four years of Obama instead

Watch out Bruce Springsteen and Jay Z
I believe your income will be taxed big time, you’ll see

When it does, your lifestyle cut, don’t come moaning, do we care?  not us
Because I think you have helped put America under a bus

Did you not learn when young that nothing is free
Free health care, I know that is never to be

I come from a Country that has that system in place
Who pays for it, You will, because money does not come from outer space

So all you rappers, rockers and film stars and wanna b’s
You have helped persuade others away from the realities

There are no free lunches, you can see that in Greece
The place is rioting a long way from peace

America was a place of invention and free enterprise
Exciting, a land of promise, adventure, risk and no compromise

As you can tell I am disappointed and yes rather sad
Because America’s demise will affect the rest of the world, that is bad

I hope for this great country I am very wrong
That it will become the power it was. Loud and strong
But I will not be able to hold my breath for that long
