14-Year Old Starts "No Cussing Club"

I was eating lunch the other day at a restaurant, and I was sitting in a booth adjacent to a group of teenagers who looked to be around 14 or 15 years old. I was startled when I kept over-hearing them repeatedly use profanity. It shouldn't have come as a surprise to me considering most of today's teenagers' role models from TV and music routinely use profanity every chance they get.

That's why this video I saw today was so encouraging. A 14-year old from California started a "No Cussing Club" about a year ago, and it has now spread to his entire town, where the mayor has declared a "No Cussing Week". What a great story. One of my favorite quotes from this interview is when the host asks the boy why he thinks teenagers, and adults for that matter, shouldn't cuss. His response, "Well, first of all, it makes you sound really unintelligent and it just lessons you." Well said.

If you're prone to cussing on a regular basis, why not give it a try. Try not cussing for a day and see how you feel.

Make it a great day!
