Hello readers, I hope all is well. Just a quick fact, on the 27th of this month, it will be American Diabetes Alert Day. In light of this growing epidemic, I thought I would talk about this video I came across recently. In this Coke add you will see a common shipping truck passing out free Coca Cola. At the end of the video the camera pans out and the question "where will happiness strike next?" is revealed. I can understand coke attempting to gain more customers by giving a free promotion, but what are they saying about the people who they are visiting? Can they not afford happiness? Are they even happy? Is it coke or is it the fact that free things in general make people happy? All of these questions are valid, but Coke will not answer them. Coke, like many other man made beverage, is full of sugar and should only be consumed in moderation. Coke is not to blame for our weaknesses, we are, and until we take charge of our bodies, the media will do their best to put what they want in it.
