Tomorrow is the big day. California primaries!! I hope everyone will make time to get to the polls and be prepared to vote.
I started this blog at the end of February after hearing about Prop 29. After reading that the effort to raise taxes on cigarettes had been beaten 14 times in a row I wanted to do something. I have known a handful of people that have battled cancer, some shared here on the blog, and wanted to do something for them.
So, I made it my goal to post for the next three months. I did it, almost every day. If I learned anything, it is that believing in something is worth fighting for and I pray that Prop 29 passes tomorrow.
Thanks for supporting my efforts, friends. One last post tomorrow...
Don't forget! Yes on 29!!

Once upon a time there was a state and her name was California. She smelled of honeysuckle and oranges. She was a happy and bright state. Everyone who came was impressed with her beauty and she soon became known as the Golden State. Decades passed and this dear old California began to feel weathered and worn. She loved all her people, but through the years sensed a change. It was a gradual change, but it was not for the better. It was an unhealthy change full of money and greed. It was polluted air and poisoned children. It was innocent deaths and costly consequences. And it broke Mother Earth's heart to see her sweet California suffer so. But then one day there was an opportunity! A chance for her people to bring back her smile! She silently pleaded for good to prevail. For a healthier future with clean air and a cure! A cure for a disease that takes HALF of her people!! She waited and waited until she heard the results and then beamed inside when her people came through. For now money would be spent in all the right places and children were given a chance to be kids. Clean air was abundant, healthy people were thriving and California, once again, became happy and bright.
Californians for a Cure. Yes on Prop 29.

Primaries are in one week!! JUNE 5th.
Some people may still not know about Prop 29! Everyone is busy...it takes literally a minute to write an email, text, blog, FB status, tweet or pin that you will be voting YES on Prop 29. Add a $1 tax to every pack of cigarettes sold and that additional money will go directly to cancer research.
Please don't read this and go on doing what you will do next. Choose to act.
