Stop changing our clocks twice a year.

Twice a year, (especially during the last eight years, since my first non-clock-reading child was born), I have wanted to start a petition against a government-mandated time change. The shift in time that occurs twice a year diminishes the average citizen's quality of life. I realize it does not seem very significant, but I am convinced that this disruption in our lives can affect mental health. It is obvious that time-change is inconvenient for everyone, but studies also show that people are more prone to accidents and injury. Studies show a substantial increase in depression and other life-altering mental illness. Surely everyone reacts differently, but most everyone I know at least feels excessively tired for about a week following each time change. Even if exhaustion is the only problem, isn't that enough? We have to be forced to feel that way two weeks out of every year? According to the research I have done, none of the reasons for Daylight Savings Time are relevant anymore; however, it seems to be popular. I am begging our government to reject the semi-annual time change and stick to one time or the other.

      It is obviously a time saver to keep clocks as is and the presented research is correct.

      Our hospital spends a great deal of time correcting the time changes on medical records that have errors. Ridiculous. Not to mention the time of engineers that have to go to each clock in every building where clocks are out of reach or locked down to change the times and the temperature controls on the auto run A/C and heat and auto lighting that must be reset. Please send this to anyone you know. End DST.
