February promotes awareness of to important issues.

Firstly it is Black History Month. Later I may post something more involved as to why I think Black History month is important. If you don't agree, ask and we can discuss. Needless to say I feel that it is valid and important to be celebrating African American history, both as a society and as individuals trying to expand our horizons and better understand out fellow man. And in the spirit of spreading knowledge, I leave you with linkies. Go forth and increase your brain.

Octavia Butler was a brilliant author. If you have the time I highly recommend The Parable of the Sower, a very different post-apocalyptic telling. -- http://www.biography.com/articles/Octavia-E.-Butler-38207

February is also American Heart Month. Heart disease is the #1 killer of both men AND women in this country. More than All cancers combined. No one is exempt. So go out and do something for your heart today.
