Random acts of kindness

I've had an awful week.

But not as awful as some folks I know, and, even more, some I don't.

Re: Should donated money be used for house rebuilding of those who were not insured?

It takes all types to 'make' a community. It's the people in the community that we want to help.

Re: What % came on a reccie or holiday 1st?
