The Responsibility of American Vapers I want to place a few thoughts out here for consideration, discussion and possibly some kind of action. Not sure I have any answers much less all answers. That is not why I am writing this. My goal with this is to simply unload a lot of negative feeling, mauled over into hopefully something positive. Look at how vaping has changed our world. Many people might not see "much" change vaping has brought. Well, if you save one life you've also saved one world. Vaping has saved lives, scores of them. Vapers ought to feel proud in encouraging others to get away from tobacco. That aside, vaping in America will set the standard for vaping all over the world. The U.K. at the present seems to be raising the banner of saving lives higher. Glad they are doing that too. Still, I think many can agree that America sets the stage and we genuinely need to step up and do so. Flat out, our leaders here in America are not doing well at all. There is so much corruption and heading down the wrong things to do we can barely keep sight of what is right. One thing that is right is saving lives. Since vaping does that we need more of it in the world. We don't need less by having India ban it and be following what it sees in America, "save the children". What American vapers need to do is find a way to help bring vaping back to India. Yes, I know we likely ought to mind our own business too. Also know there's a lot of difficulty to doing such a thing. What else do I know? Well, America should be held in high honor. We're not. There is a lot going on right now, not simply the vaping. I'm not going to get into it other than to say allies need to know allies are there when needed. "Don't give up the ship!" - Capt. James Lawrence USS Chesapeake ("Dying command" in engagement with HMS Shannon -- War of 1812) It seems as though America is content to give up the ship. We toss aside allies. We create lies about something good that get believed all over the world. We neglect our responsibility to help save the ship we call Earth. American vapers need to step up and end this nonsense, get us back on the right path. Our fault India made the ban, our mess to clean up. Our leaders won't, that should be clear. And no, I'm not here to lead, nor follow. Walk beside me. No idea where I'm going but that's okay too. I know we'll get there quicker. Apologies for a bit of opinion without any clear solution/s. I've just felt really bad regarding a lot going on, vaping is part of that. I can see that it is going to come down to each individual. Add the individuals up and you got a crowd. Two people, it is said in many words of wisdom, can move mountains. Thought I could voice a call out to that spirit.
