My father, @thedavefleming, nominated me yesterday for the 22 day push up challenge to raise awareness to the fact that 22 military vets take their own lives everyday. This is a tragedy and the push up challenge is a fun way to raise awareness for something quite serious and must be addressed.
Day 1 is now on the books!
Today, I nominate my ol' lady, @vforvondetta. You start tomorrow!
The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days start the following day. * Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups. Try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups or that you have to stop and take a break that's fine but try to get them all done in one video. * Every day you must 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, have fun with this. This is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware about. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and its sad that so many veterans feel that suicide is the only way out. #helpourvets
