My sister-in-law used her miles to get me a hotel room the night before an early am flight. She arranged a shuttle service to pick me up and bring me home (an hour away from the airport).

A hell of a two-week stay! Aloha. – Carol

I had to go to the hospital immediately. I had so many plans in the upcoming months. I was a Girl Scout Leader, a Service Unit Manager (which handles many troops in the area), and worked full time. All of that stopped that day. read more →

According to NBC News, Rajesh Kumar Sharma teaches at least 30 children every day. Most of the children come from neighboring poor villages.

For two hours every weekday, Sharma leaves his day-job at a general store in Shakarpur — his brother fills in for him — so that he can teach the children, reported Yahoo News.

My brother holds a sign “will work for food”. He is not homeless but mentally ill and gets very little money to live on. The meds they give him causes many side effects, swollen tongue, constant leg movement and paranoia, so he quit taking it and drinks to make himself black out so as not to have to deal with it. He is the kindest person. read more →
