One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well.
The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally he decided since the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
So, the farmer invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.
They all grabbed shovels, and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, when the donkey realized what was happening, he cried horribly.
Then, the donkey quieted down. Everyone continued shoveling.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well, and was astonished at what he saw.
With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
The donkey would shake each shovel of dirt off, and take a step up on the dirt as it piled up.
As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.
Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well, and trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.
But each trouble can be a stepping stone.
What happens to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it.
We can get out of the deepest wells just by not giving up!
Sound absurd? Well now that we have your attention we want to tell you about something just as absurd but real. The Los Angeles City Council is planning to meet in a few days to consider a ban on the use of electronic cigarettes indoors and wherever smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes is prohibited. This would mean that you could no longer use blu or any electronic cigarette device in public.
Don’t worry; we have some simple steps you can take to help stop this!
First, sign the petition below to give your support to stop this ban. Signing up is simple and only takes a few seconds.
The second and most important step you can take is to show up! Come out on Monday, February 24, 2014 at 2 PM in room 1060 at City Hall at:
200 N. Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012.
Finally please email or call your local council member using the list below. Tell them your personal story about how electronic cigarettes have changed your life. Most importantly let them know that you do not support this ban on e-cigs.
