Something cool that Xerox is doing by showing they are committed to helping people across the nation express their gratitude to our troops overseas. To do this they have setup the web site, www.letssaythanks.com , where you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and send it to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You do not get to pick who gets the card, but it will go to some member of the Armed Services.

www.letssaythanks.com

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! This would make a great assignment for the kids in your Dojo to do as a community activity. This is a great site. This is a great program.

Please send a card today, it is FREE and it only takes a second.

Unfit - An American Problem!
Reprinted here with the permission of our friend Mike Belkin.

This cartoon does a great job of pointing out the perspective of many people today. They lack the long term vision of their health and the impacts their decisions today will have on their health tomorrow. As human beings we tend to have a lack of perspective about ourselves which gives an illusion of our world instead of the reality. Illusions are attractive but dangerous if you loose site of reality. Illusions allow us to ignore dangerous situations (overeating, drugs, laziness, etc) and fall into a cycle of self abuse. Find your reality today and To thy own self be true!

This is by far one of the best anti-drug ads that I have seen.

It makes a strong message is a funny and memorable way, drugs kill brain cells. I could go on but think I’ll let the video do the talking 😉
In case you missed the message…Cannabis, High for a night, Slow for a Month…maybe even longer…
