Fanatical at Liberty

Category: solving world hunger

This past tax season a couple walked in our office and they were drenched in sweat. We had already done their taxes and they were just waiting for their refund, in which case I knew something was wrong because I had spoken with the wife just the day before.

Homeless Helper I was driving home and noticed a man at the exit holding a sign asking for prayers and food.
