"The moral test of a government is how it treats those who are at the
dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the
aged; and those who are in the shadow of life, the sick and the needy,
and the handicapped." VP Hubert Humphrey
National Women's Health Week is a week long health observance from May
8th 14th coordinated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services' Office on Women's Health (
http://www.womenshealth.gov/about-us ). It brings together
communities, businesses, government, health organizations, and other
groups in an effort to promote women's health. The theme for 2011 is
"It's Your Time." National Women's Health Week empowers women to make
their health a top priority. It also encourages them to take steps to
improve their physical and mental health and lower their risks of
certain diseases. Those steps include:
Getting at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate physical activity (
http://www.womenshealth.gov/FitnessNutrition/stayingactive/ ), 1 hour
and 15 minutes of vigorous physical activity, or a combination of both,
each week 
Eating a nutritious diet (
http://www.womenshealth.gov/FitnessNutrition/eatinghealthy/ ) 
Visiting a health care professional to receive regular checkups and
preventive screenings (
Avoiding risky behaviors, such as smoking (
http://www.womenshealth.gov/quit-smoking ) and not wearing a seatbelt

Paying attention to mental health (
http://www.womenshealth.gov/mental-health ), including getting enough
sleep and managing stress

May 8th 2011 is Mothers Day. On Mother's Day, the Sojourners e-magazine
suggests  an alternative gift that can celebrate mothers and other
special women in your lives. It's a gift that empowers a mom working her
way out of poverty in another part of the world. Mother's Day gift
cards, starting at $10, empower women to build businesses, send their
children to school and save for their future. Using the gift card, your
mother can choose a woman client to help fund, and then track her
progress via email updates from Opportunity International. Once she
redeems her gift card, your mom will receive updates on that client
throughout her loan cycle. To learn more or to buy a gift card, go to
http://www.opportunity.org/give/giftcard  To learn more about
Sojourners, go to SojoMail at sojo.net 
…Or closer to home, you can make a donation to Feeding America and let
that be your Mothers Day gift at http://feedingamerica.org/
