This title alone conjures up images of a fight, and I suppose in actuality it is referring to one. However, I'm not speaking of a physical fight, but what I'm referring to is the fight against tobacco. The conflict still continues to this day. Although today it is verbal - "Stand Out. Speak Up. Seize Control Against Big Tobacco" - these are the words of Kick Butts Day 2009. Which just so happens to be today, March 25, 2009.
I know we have all heard the tobacco message numerous times, but it bears repeating with statistics like this! So here’s to Kick Butts Day, and may the youth of today continue to kick butt on and off school grounds.
Kick Butts Day began in 1995 by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, and works to help parents, teachers, health advocates, and youth leaders educate kids on the harmful effects of tobacco products.
