Memorial Day

Memorial Day 2017 is Monday, May 29th.

Memorial Day is an American holiday dedicated to the memory of all war dead. Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) is grateful for all of the men and women who have served in the U. S. military to protect and defend their country and to promote freedom, so that I can dress as a yard safety super hero and promote yard safety awareness.  I recognize that freedom is not free.  Often times, American citizens extend the concept of honoring war dead to all dead. I want to take a moment of silence to remember family members, friends, and fellow Americans who have passed away. (SILENCE)

Also, I must remember the individuals who have died while grass cutting - killed by outdoor power equipment. (SILENCE) The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that there have been over 3,000 fatalities during the past 30 years. In recent years, there are still about 150 lawn mower fatalities each year. This is one reason that the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man (sm) campaign exists. It is unfortunate that war sometimes results in loss of life while fighting for your country as a true patriot. Again, I want to thank all of the American soldiers who have served and are currently serving their country. Furthermore, it is really unfortunate to die from a fatal outdoor power equipment accident. Wake-up America! Indeed, you can die from cutting grass. Think before you cut. It can kill you. BE SAFE! (tm) I hope that you enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend because the WAR DEAD and the LAWN MOWER DEAD WILL NOT. Again, I am very grateful for the FALLEN WAR HEROES, and I recognize the LAWN MOWER DEAD.  I remember DECEASED FAMILY and FRIENDS.  I respect and honor all the lives of the DEAD.  THANK YOU! (SILENCE)

21 Lawn Mower Salute! (SILENCE)

Thank you for serving our country. Thank you for the memories! (CELEBRATE LIFE)

Happy Mother's Day

I am grateful for my mom. My mom has influenced Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. She has a long history of reaching out to help other people. She seems to always put other people before herself in a Christ-like fashion. Also, my mom has really cared for Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man. She really helped me immediately after my lawn mower accident. It was a very difficult and challenging time for several reasons. My mom took care of me. Likewise, I have inherited a will to rescue people from having a yard accident. If not for my mom, the many yard safety innovations that Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man has introduced to the world would have never happened.

Also, I want to suggest to all mothers the importance of adding yard safety to the skills and tools that you give and teach your children. Each year, children represent about 20% of all people who get hurt from outdoor power equipment related accidents. Furthermore, I encourage all mothers to give their children the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man yard safety tips, to become better prepared and more knowledgeable about using outdoor power equipment. I recognize that motherhood introduces considerable responsibility. Please visit the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man website to learn more about yard safety. I do not want your baby to get hurt.

Happy Mother's Day!

Cinco de Mayo

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man celebrates Cinco de Mayo. I continue to create the Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man piñata of yard safety awareness.

Cinco de Mayo ("The Fifth of May" in Spanish) is observed in the United States and other locations around the world as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.

It commemorates an initial victory of Mexican forces led by General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín over French forces in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. However, the Mexican victory at Puebla only delayed the French invasion of Mexico City, and a year later, the French occupied Mexico. The French occupying forces placed Maximilian I, Emperor of Mexico on the throne of Mexico; Maximillian and the French were eventually defeated and expelled in 1867, five years after the Battle of Puebla (Source: Wikipedia).

The reference to the Battle of Puebla is seen as a symbolic cultural link to those who had to overcome insurmountable odds while facing adversity. In neighborhoods such as East Los Angeles, the Mission District of San Francisco, East San Jose and elsewhere throughout the Southwest, Cinco de Mayo is most accurately characterized as a day of celebration to honor a culture that fuses Mexican heritage and American life experience (Source: Wikipedia).

Rescue Rick the Grass Cut Man recognizes the important contributions of many people of Mexican decent who work in the green industry. I want to prevent any Mexicans (anyone) from getting hurt. No mulched and shredded Mexicans!  I do not want anyone to die or get hurt!

Be yard safe! Think yard safety! Think before you cut. It hurts! Be a yard safety crusader!
