Don’t Give Up Your Dreams

Every teen needs to understand that prescription and over the counter drugs are not experimental or recreational!  This is a video created by a father about his son.   Albert was a great guy and friend to my son.   We will always miss him!


I hope everyone will share this video with others.   Gary wants people to keep Oct. 30 in mind.  He’s working on a Fall Back/Take Back campaign and hopes to get a million pills off the street that date.  I think that is an awesome goal!  If even one other father doesn’t have to go through what this father and group of friends did, the video will have been a success!  Thanks for sharing this with us Gary!

Here is a link to a story about Albert by Chanel 11.

Having grown up with “old school” vampire movies like Dracula, I have a bit of a problem with a lot of the new age vampire movies.  I mean come on, what fun is it when vampires walk into the sun and sparkle (Twilight)? Really?  Well, I have to admit that a LOT of the old school vamp rules apply in Daybreakers, but not all and some new weird rules (even for vamp movies) are thrown in to boot!
