Motivational Bookmark: Just Take Another Shot
Life has no remote. You have to get up and change it.
Instead of thinking outside the box, get rid of the box. — Deepak Chopra
Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and, if things don’t work out, just take another shot.

Stroke Warning Signs
Stroke is a medical emergency. Every second counts, because time lost is brain lost. Know these stroke warning signings and teach them to others:
Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body.
Sudden confusion and trouble understanding
Sudden trouble speaking.
Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes.
Sudden trouble walking.
Dizziness or loss of balance and coordination
Sudden severe headache with no known cause.
If you or someone you’re with exhibits one or more of these signs, call 911 immediately. Get an ambulance with advanced life support sent to you immediately.
If a clot-busting drug is given within three hours of the start of symptoms, it can reduce long-term disability for the most common strokes.
