All 50 state statics

For the past month and a half I have been posting the state statics as an eye opener. When you say the numbers it is like no one listens. But if they are seen it seems to open their eyes. When I request the Proclamations and Resolutions from my elected officials. I hear....I did not know that. :(  Or when they do a Proclamation or Resolution reading and presentation and read the numbers. They have to pause and then the look of shock on their face and Council members and those at the meeting as well. During this time some will speak up and share their Journey as well. :) No matter which state you live in one man losing his battle to prostate cancer is one life to many! #CountMeIn #ProstateCancerProclamations  #ProstateCancer
