Veterans/Remembrance Day and the #Meth Project

Today's post is rather unique as it'll encompass several different things...

However, please take a moment today to remember the veterans that fought for us so many years ago and thank them for all that they have done for us. :)

If you haven't done this yet, please do the following...its really quick and I appreciate all the votes I can get. Its almost over, just click and when you see the picture load with the little people above it, click the one farthest on the right (The 5th one aka "Awesome"). Thank you!

Now, to the meat of this post. I decided to post this and help out a friend over at one of the companies I work with because I believe its a good cause. Drug use, I have found, is something that affects people of all classes of society and all sorts of people. Its not limited to any one. However, I'm not here to judge. I just want to help educate and warn teens of the dangers of meth usage.

The Meth Project is a non-profit organization focused on warning and educating teens about the dangers of meth use. They have developed 4 videos that show teens reflecting upon the questions they might have asked before ever trying the drug. In "Losing Control," a teenage boy reflects on how his Meth addiction has driven him to steal from his family and turn violent on his little brother. Please keep in mind that these videos are contain strong content and emotions and may not be suited for everyone.  

Methproject.org is a highly interactive website designed to encourage teens to ask questions about Meth. No sugar-coating. Just factual answers to important questions. 

Three other campaign videos were produced and directed by Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky, director of Black Swan and The Wrestler should you wish to watch them. 
ER 

Its a good educational source for those that want to become educated and hopefully, as a result, stay away from meth usage.
