time, people, healthier
There comes a time when a people must decide to live healthier lives. The consequences of the use of tobacco, alcohol, illicit drugs, caffeine, and junk foods are today nationally and internationally known. The year of decision, 2011, is a call to all Americans to decide to abstain from the use of these harmful substances. Too many of our people, young and old, are suffering. The harmful effects of these substances are making it difficult for healthcare to be more available in our country. Every nation has its national pledge of patriotism and loyalty. Let the following National Health Pledge help us to be a healthier and wiser nation. If you choose to abstain from any of the following: tobacco, alcohol, illicit drugs, caffeine, and junk foods, please sign this National Health Pledge.
Your signature will prove to be an encouragement for those who are battling with and suffering from these health-destroying substances. I would ask you to do one more thing, namely, visit our website www. nationalhealthpledge.com, and read about the KNEWSTART Program. It is one thing to refrain from things that are health-destroying, it is another thing to participate in those things that are health-promoting. There are nine golden laws of health that will help us live healthier and longer. These nine health laws are: Kindness, Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunlight, Temperance, Air, Rest, and Trust in God. These laws are actually laws of action. If we practice them, we receive their rich benefits.
So let us all do our part to make this a healthier nation. Remember, in the words of President Kennedy, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country".
