      ... can, we provide therapy to those like at "Happy’s” when and where we can, we play with the children and teach them where we can and we provide hope and belief for those we can, through Gods grace.

      These are the obvious things we see each day, and this suffering is everywhere and as much as we want to help, we feel overwhelmed by the needs and disease and sickness everywhere of so many. But then there is the silent suffering of ...

While some areas definitely look rather run down, the city seems to have made a lot of investment to clean up the business district and revitalize the city center.

      ... to hear her perspectives and see so much of myself at that age. So willing to watch everything that came out, but so lacking in the great films of history.

      The dance floor was an odd space right by the stairs up to the patio. There were a couple large steps up to the small upper ...
