Good morning fellow Exer's! Welcome aboard to Freedom Train on this first Saturday morning in April! Yesterday was of course the First of April, and I hope no one got fooled by the nicodemons! This morning the Train is going to salute a group of people that for the most part are not heard from! The Train is still making it's usual run to Freedom from tobacco, but today we are going to ask a different group of people to speak up!
It was recently brought to my attention that there are a lot of folks out there who a fighting a lot more than the addiction to nicotine, that brought us all together here! There are a large number of people who are also fighting health problems related to smoking! Most of us are aware of our fantasic friend Kellie, who chronicles her fight with her writting at: http://asiliveandbreathe-kellie.blogspot.com. BTW Kellie is 2/3 of the way to being a Quad Squad member! 667 days today! We are all very aware of out friend Thomas who does so much for COPD awareness! What we do not know is how many people are suffering in silence. How many out there feel shame because they fell victim to health problems because of their own poor choices? How many are out there feeling that they have no voice here? You do have a voice! There is an opportunity to be a part of something so much larger than yourself! You have a place here. Come and celebrate the life that you have! Live every minute of it! Find the joy that we share here, and share your experence with us! Find the joy of helping yourself by helping others! "Collateral Kindness" is alive and well! It is riding the Freedom Train, and we want, and need you to be a part of it! There is joy to be found in every moment of life! Come and share that with us!!
This Train is bound for FREEDOM from the shackles that bound us to tobacco!
"IF YOU ARE NOT RIDING WITH US, YOU ARE MISSING THE TRAIN"
ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL ABOARD!!!!!!!!! Tommy
