    fire Burning the trees And I see fire Hollowing souls I see fire Blood in the breeze And I hope that you remember me Oh, should my people fall Then surely I'll do the same Confined in mountain halls We got too close to the flame And if the night is burning I will cover my eyes...

    When I was 19, a Hispanic man bought my lunch

    for me once because my debit card was declined. I also got stuck in pensylvania that year, and a family helped me and my friend get help by letting us stay in their house for an hour, and use their phone on our way down to South Carolina. This was at four in the morning too on...

    And I Appreciate It.

    When a friend helps, you are grateful and happy that you have such a friend.When a stranger steps up and lends a had just to be kind, no reward expected, that is a different story. What a blessing to have such friendly strangers.

    I don't mind my friends or my husband using hun for me but not total strangers/random people. I don't like babe as it reminds me too much of crappy TV shows like Geordie Shore.
