Day 3 of the 22 pushup challenge
Nominated by: Keith Martin:
Dedicated to: My creative writing students–student solidarity!
Today I’m nominating Brooklyn Falkenberg. I know you can do this, Brooklyn!
22 push-ups a day for 22 days to raise awareness for combat veterans. There were, at one time, 22 vets a day committing suicide, and this is a small way to raise awareness for that issue. It’s not that bad now — but it still bad. You start tomorrow! (You CAN do this!)
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 freedom and it’s sad that so many veterans feel that suicide is the only way out.
