Alzheimer's Awareness Month and Election day!

Hello again everyone! It's November, have you all adjusted to daylight savings?  I know I enjoyed my extra hour of sleep on Sunday!  November is a very important month for us as it's National Alzheimer's Awareness Month.  Currently, Alzheimer's is an incurable brain disease that affects countless elderly across the world.  Memory loss is only the tip of the iceberg with this disease, it can completely rewire a person's behavior as the brain begins to fail. 

There currently is no cure but there are treatments available, but with your help we can fund research into a possible cure, or at least a greater understanding and more effective treatments.  If you would like to help fight Alzheimer's and Dementia, spread the word and donate to a charity of your choice that's working towards curing Alzheimer's.

Today is Election Day! Did you know millions of Americans don't vote?  Whether it's laziness or just the hopeless feeling that your 1 small vote doesn't matter.  Sometime's it's hard to see just how important your one vote is. But if you feel your vote doesn't matter, odds are someone else doesn't feel their vote matters too, and it just keeps going until a large chunk of the populous isn't making their voice heard.  The mid term elections could be the most important votes you could make, even compared to voting for the president! You're more likely to experience policies by the senate and governors than you will from the POTUS (President of the United States).  I don't care what your political standing is, you have your own viewpoints, so shouldn't you cast your vote for the people who best represent you?  Vote for change if you want change, vote to keep things the way they are, what ever it is, you have the right to make your voice heard, it's one of the many blessings we have in the United States.  If you are legally allowed to vote, you should exercise your right to do so, and if not voting is what you truly want then go for it, but ask yourself, "Is there anything about the country I'd like to see change or stay the way it is?"  If you answered yes, then you should go vote, it'll only help the chances you'll see the changes you want to see.
