Positive Attitude Nominates our Fans for the ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed. Recently you may have noticed the latest “Ice Bucket Challenge Movement” to hit the social media realm.  To date, it has helped to raise 31.5 million do...

Pay it Forward: A Heart Warming Story of Generosity and Kindness

It’s easy for people to become selfish and caught up in their lives, especially when times are hard.  We look out for ourselves, and our best interests, and at times we may find ourselves in a situation where our own needs, or the needs of our family may come first. On average, you’ll come in contact with hundreds of thousands of people in your life time.  Some are friends and family who will stay with us throughout out the years, and some may briefly pass though our lives called acquaintances.   The the others who we may not know well at all, we call  strangers. Strangers come from all walks of life, and are typically initially judged on appearance or behavior, without any real knowledge of who they are, where they come from or what they’re about.  You won’t even k...

Wearing a Smile

  Our friend Jared Hicks wanted to share his story with us.  We couldn’t be more proud to share it, and his wonderful song with you! [divider]   A few years ago I lost my buddy Jack to cancer… Wait, wait before you get all sad there’s more to the story! Jack knew me since the first breath I took on this earth. He was always in my life in some aspect or another. When he first got sick, I was mad. I didn’t understand how this could happen to a guy like Jack and what I also didn’t understand was how Jack didn’t seem a bit worried. He continued on with life as if everything was perfectly normal. What was even stranger was he almost seemed happy about it. You would never see him when he wasn’t smiling or laughing no matter how he felt physical...

Homeless Teen Becomes Valedictorian and Teaches Classmates That You Can Accomplish Anything

Senior Griffin Furlong, despite losing his mother to cancer when he was six and living in homeless shelters his entire life, often going hungry.  Despite having this hardship all of his life, Griffin went on and achieved a 4.65 GPA, earning him the title of valedictorian at First Coast High School.  During his speech he went on to inspire classmates, teachers, friends and even strangers that when you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything.

Independence Day Quote Tribute

In honor of Independence Day we’re devoting today’s words of wisdom to our founding fathers! We hope it inspires you to reflect on what this day is really all about.  Enjoy! We celebrate Independence Day out of recognition for the brave and symbolic action our founding fathers took by proclaiming their immutable divorce with the tyrannical British government. “May it be to the world, what I believe it will be … the signal of arousing men to burst the chains … and to assume the blessings and security of self-government. That form, which we have substituted, restores the free right to the unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion. All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. … For ourselves, let the annual return of this day forever refresh our recollect...
