If you are looking for a cause to wrap your energy around, I have a really good one for you. Kick Butts Day, is March 18. This the day that has been set aside to protest, stand up and speak out about kids and tobacco, one of the fastest spreading, and one of the most deadly drugs in this country. Many of today’s youth will die early due to tobacco use. I quit more than 35 years ago and will guarantee you that it is a whole lot harder to quit then it is to start.
