To help another is to help self.

Some stroll into coffee shop with look of contentment.

To be needed by others is to be proud.

Kindness to others benefits myself as well.

Republican victory today,shot self in foot.

In school, we rarely learn about reality of life.

Employees wear plastic gloves, I prefer dirt on hands, healthier.

I am an “on time”person.

Life was simpler without all these choices.
