We should be an active participant in any decisions about our health as in any decision about the politics and government we are in.
Our grandchildren depends on us since their health is also dependent on our health. Their future depends on the people we vote into power. We have to share our voices and help in enactment of government regulations or laws. We have to choose health over sickness when we choose to eat unhealthy toxic food or lifestyle.
We should know what helps us be healthy and know what our government is doing for the good of the people and voice out our opinion when the good of the people is at stake.
We should have our voices heard, so be mindful of the things around us, of the toxic environment that affects us, of the government actions that affect our future and the future of our children and grandchildren.
We should care for our bodies and our government who should act for the good of the people and not be selfish rulers.
Hillary Clinton thanked her staff, her family, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama as well as the volunteers and activists on her campaign.

“To all the women who put faith in this campaign and me, I want you to know nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion,” she said. “We have still have not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling. But some day, someone will.”
“To all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every opportunity in the world to pursue your own dreams.”
Clinton said she was grateful to the country.
“I count my blessings every single day that I am an American, and I still believe, as deeply as I ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strengthen our convictions, and love for this nation, our best days are still ahead of us.”
She concluded her speech saying, “I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. And you should never, ever regret fighting for that. You know, scripture tells us, ‘let us not grow weary of doing good, for in good season we shall reap.’ My friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary and lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do.”
