Happier than Most!
You don't have to be rich too be happy.

The elderly are lonely too
Be kind to the seniors

See Something, Say Something!
I honestly believe, we need to take a stance sometime!

The sun goes away, midnight arrives

Never say Goodbye, again!
Earth is not our permanent home.

My Faith came at an early age
Faith is seeing the light with your heart

Fake News
The Leader of the Free world lies way too much!

I am Grateful
There is always something to be GRATEFUL for!
