Secret Garden

One of many quiet nooks I’ve found lately to ponder the heavy conversations I’ve been mulling over at work. We are knee deep in national health issues and trying to figure out what policies and programs could do something to change the sad fact Americans are eating and smoking themselves to death. Personal choice and responsibility have never been more important to our nation, our security and our future.

If you’d like a non-traditional take on what has led us down this path, this guy thinks it all started with Nixon. (This is both hilarious and frightening by his research.) The program is long, but well worth consideration. It is also inspiring me to shake up my own eating habits and take more responsibility for my health.

I’ll be standing in front of a class of graduate students preaching about the importance of such choices too soon; better to do so being my very best. I think this may be the best motivation I’ve ever had.
