That’s the problem with this and other Countries..

Random acts of kindness are just that:  Random.

It’s a true shame when kindness, trusting, helpfulness (other than online cyber-friends), and just being polite to your fellowman become the exception—not the rule.

I have become a partial hermit because of this.
I’ve been “taken to the cleaners” so many times from trusting and promised expectations, that my “wardrobe” is cleaned, pressed and starched better than new!

My trust of new acquaintances has waned as of late—this being the reasons.

The time will eventually come when many will back on these days and wish they had tried a change- and long for the era when people communicated with each other and wern't viewed as a threat or competition towards their lifestyles-- and it will come....

It’s still nice to see something like this come to fruition—

Even if it has to be posted on a board with nothing in common with the cause, besides Craig's opening post and with the exception of the wonderful people here willing to step up and voice their say.



Vote?

Of course I did-


This is truly the only right thing to do…


Cheers..

You people are awesome. In one day he went from 61 votes to 104, putting him in the lead.

Let's keep this up. If he's watching his vote count, he must be very excited right now.
