    Not Exactly True

    Raised in a broken home, I learned to hate dependency. My mom made less money per month than the rent. She wouldn't accept government assistance, but she almost expected friends and relatives to "loan" her money. Frankly, it embarrassed me. At 14, I begin bailing hay at $1.40...

    I live in a 5 person family. We aren't poor, but sometimes pay checks come in late and we scrounge for money. I was saving up for a new mattress because my springs are poking through mine and leaving red marks on my back. Well at one point a short while ago my dad was sick and my...

    Dear God... Why Me?

    I have always been that guy to help others who are in need, sometimes to a fault. For the past few years I have been a caregiver to a very sick friend. They are on life support and reside within my home. Fastforwarding... I finally landed the job I struggled for a year to get...

    An Answer To A Simple Question

    I just thought I would share how an answer to a simple question that I asked inspired me. A young lady who I don't know answered my question regarding willingness to sacrifice by saying she would sacrifice all just to make someone smile. My cynical mind doubted the validity of...

    I'm that guy who always holds the door for others. Even if I have to put myself in an awkward position that actually makes it more difficult for them to enter the door.
