An INSPIRING forwarded STORY...

One day, when I was a freshman in high school,

I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school.

His name was Kyle.

It looked like he was carrying all of his books.

I thought to myself, "Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday?

He must really be a nerd."

I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.

As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him.

They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt.

His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him.

He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes

My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye.

As I handed him his glasses, I said, "Those guys are jerks. "

They really should get lives.

" He looked at me and said, "Hey thanks!"

There was a big smile on his face.

It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.

I helped him pick up his books, and asked him where he lived.

As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before.

He said he had gone to private school before now.

I would have never hung out with a private school kid before.

We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.

He turned out to be a pretty cool kid.

I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with my friends

He said yes.

We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him.

Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again.

I stopped him and said, "Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday!

"He just laughed and handed me half the books.

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends.

When we were seniors, we began to think

about college.

Kyle decided on Georgetown, and I

was going to Duke.

I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem.

He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship.

Kyle was valedictorian of our class.

I teased him all the time about being a nerd.

He had to prepare a speech for graduation.

I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak

Graduation day, I saw Kyle.

He looked great.

He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school.

He filled out and actually looked good in glasses.

He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him.

Boy, sometimes I was jealous.

Today was one of those days.

I could see that he was nervous about his speech.

So, I smacked him on the back and said, "Hey, big guy, you'll be great!"

He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled.

"Thanks," he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began

"Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years.

Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach...but mostly your friends...

I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them.

I am going to tell you a story."

I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the story of the first day we met.

He had planned to kill himself over the weekend.

He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home.

He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile.

"Thankfully, I was saved.

My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable. "

I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment.

I saw his Mom and dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile.

Not until that moment did I realize its depth.

Never underestimate the power of your actions.

With one small gesture you can change a person's life.

For better or for worse.

God puts us all in each other's lives to impact one another in some way.

Look for God in others.

You now have two choices, you can:

1) Pass this on to your friends or

2) Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice number 1.

"Friends are angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly."

There is no beginning or end ? Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow is mystery.

Today is a gift.

Costly Diabetes Drugs—Are They Worth It?

Hi Alexander

It's Julia here,

I hope you had a great weekend, today I want to share with you an
article that I read and found rather disturbing.

Did you know that the overall cost of drugs for type 2 diabetes
almost doubled between 2001 and 2007?, yet whether these newer
drugs improve care and outcomes isn't known, a new study finds.

Researchers at Stanford University and the University of Chicago
reported that spending on diabetes drugs nearly doubled between
2001 and 2007, to $12.5 billion. They concluded that the use of
newer diabetes drugs was largely responsible for the rise in the
astounding cost per prescription from $56 in 2001 to $76 in 2007. |
Total spending went from $6.7 billion to $12.5 billion.

Recent studies have shown that these new drugs may not have any
advantage over the older, less expensive ones.

"In our considered opinion, these newer drugs don't have any
particular advantage," says David Nathan, the director of the
Diabetes Center at Massachusetts General Hospital who chaired the
panel that developed the recommendations.

Some diabetes experts report that when it comes to prescribing
initial therapy for Type 2 diabetics, some doctors tend to follow a
"treatment of laziness" -- for example, prescribing medications if
they perceive difficulties in the patient's ability to change dietary
habits or lifestyle.

There are times when patients with diabetes are treated with drugs
when it's not really necessary. Oral pills should be used in Type 2
diabetes only when diet, supplements and exercise are not effective.

So, the bottom line in diabetes control still hinges on patient's
ability to manage the disease themselves.

The decision you need to make is "can you take things into your own
hands or you can rely on the treatment of laziness?"
