    Have you ever been in a situation that you feel like doing the right thing, even when others might do something different? Everyone has courage, but what is rare is when people actually show it.

Sure enough, she found bucket, soap and cloth as expected, and half an hour later, she was considerably…

    While the office lady and my mother were talking I explored the building from the window in the office. This place doesn’t have walls!
