Removing ashtray at CPH a breath of fresh air

It was refreshing to no longer see the dirty ashtray that sat in front of Central Peninsula Hospital, where one goes to become well, God willing. The people seem to have a relaxed and resolved views over the Tobbacco-Free Campus. Bieng a non-smoker, it became apparent to me, to initiate, to be persistent in discussions with hospital CEO Rick Davis on the matter of the ashtrays, and what they are representing to the very people who are affected. Rick and I had several productive conversations, knowing my thoughts turn into things, things turn into actions, the Universe, if you will, I was compelled to press on. Persistance began the engaging and the gathering of the Committee Members, as so the song is sung. Happy lungs make happy people. Be well. Shalom.
