If so, you probably owe thanks to the American Lung Association.
I am especially thankful that the American Lung Association in West Virginia fought to preserve our ability to breathe clean air in workplaces, restaurants, and other indoor spaces in our state. The ALA has been here for decades fighting for our clean air.
We in the mountains of West Virginia enjoy crisp, clean air that smells wonderful in the spring. The lilacs are blooming in my back yard right now, scenting the air coming in my open windows. That reminds me how lucky we are. But we didn't get here just by luck. It has taken years--decades--of hard work. Yes, we still have some issues, and we still have work to do, but we also have come a long way.
So, take a minute today to take a deep breath. And, if you are so inclined, take another few minutes to make a contribution to the American Lung Associate to help ensure that the ALA is here in the future to protect the air we breathe.
