From Denver musician – and former USMC member – Ted Winslow on Fb: Day 1 of 22 . I was nominated to do 22 push-ups a day for 22 days in an attempt to raise awareness for veteran suicide. 22 US veterans commit suicide every day. # 22 kill. Thanks USMC Col. Andrew Bain
My first nominee is Marine Jordan Drazin
The rules are simple:
● Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
● Every day record yourself doing 22 push-ups and post it, copy this text and the hashtag to each post.
● Everyday nominate a different person, try to choose people you think will want to do this and / or have the ability to do it.
● And finally, this is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a serious matter that more people need to be aware about. Our veterans are brave men and women who put their lives on the line for us. Its sad that so many good veterans feel that suicide is the only way out. We encourage you to reach out to the Veterans in your life and remind them that they have your love and support or they may lose their battle. Please spread the word that Veteran suicide is not the answer.
Ted posted a cool video of himself on Day 1 (October 2nd ) – which is really funny because his doggies decided to help out!!!
