Silver linings…touches of grey

Hum.

So this whold “doomsday” attitude never was something I enjoyed clinging to. I’m not going to say that I’m okay with our present state of government. At the same time, nothing unites people like a common enemy.

If the American people continue to react to Bush as they have been -perhaps our country WILL improve in the next four years. Maybe citizens will start paying attention to polotics and taking part in this country’s workings. Reading journals by , , and has made me realize that we may just be a generation of activists waiting for a cause. If Bush and his frightening regime are going to be at the head of our country -we’re gonna have to be on our toes to protect what rights we have left after his first four years.

It’s funny, I haven’t seen much to remind me of it. I’m going to have to find some way to make a difference my OWN self in the coming years.

My toes are cold. There’s no heat again. You never know when it will be on. Tuesday afternoon while I was playing hooky I was FREEZING. Then it got really hot during the night. It felt warm when I came in earlier tonight, but once again it’s “colder ‘n a well-digger’s hind end” as my father would say. I better sleep. Early day tomorrow.

REMINDER: The Great American Smoke Out is Nov. 18th!!!!! Just thought I’d pitch that.

  1. The smoke out……
    …..is that when you smoke a lot, or stop smoking? In the past, I always just smoked a lot anyway because it was a special day about smoke, but since I’ve “quit” I don’t really know the true meaning of the day.

      The Great American Smoke out is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and is supposed to get smokers to quit for the whole day. I believe the point is to show smokers how easy it is to quit or something like that. I’m working on determining the actual objective still.
      I have to try and promote it here in Dekalb -smokerville usa, full of college smokers. I’m trying to get creative. So far, I’ve been so busy with everything else I haven’t instituted the ideas I’ve been planning on trying. I have some good ideas though… more later.
      Congrats on quitting, I did too last summer. Isn’t it nice not to need them?
