Bubba Smith's Action Sets Example for Others

September 20, 1986

It is always a remarkable achievement in the world when someone stops to look at what they are doing and alters their life and income based on their principles. Bubba Smith saw the cause-and-effect chain that he was a part of and decided to remove himself from it, easy money and all. Hopefully, others will follow his excellent example.

It has always puzzled me to see a professional athlete appear on the screen, giving our young people a message on the evils of drugs and then this positive signal is sometimes immediately followed by a group of former pro athletes singing, dancing and laughing about the virtues of another drug, alcohol. It just doesn't make any sense to me. Bubba Smith realized it and got out. Hopefully, others will follow his enlightened example.
