yay! his gift is the gift that will keep on giving for generations to come for choosing to give it to a nurse! She will undoubtedly use her gifts, the one he gave her and the one she will give many, through caring for the needs of her patients! Score! Watch as the dominoes fall infinitely and in a positive direction! Hip hip to the good samaritan!

Better than money is giving people your time. Visit an elderly home and hang out with the older people, you'll see what I mean. I had people in wheelchairs up dancing, folks that been silent for years laughing and telling me stories, and people who refused to eat solid foods......eating. Being around pleasant youth bring out the kid in people.

Here is a story.
A child is born on planet earth. Man goes to it and says "You will not receive any knowledge and education unless you give me this piece of paper called 'money'. "
Child says "As a human being, I'm entitled to learning about this universe and science and medicine. What is this piece of paper you refer to ? Why is the paper needed ? I don't have it." Man replies "Then you shall be denied all source of knowledge and schooling and education. Sorry."
Another man goes to the child and gives her some pieces of paper. Child is confused, but happy. Man 1 is happy. Man 2 is happy. Everybody appreciate Man 2.
 ---- Far far away, an Alien seeing all this from another planet is confused and asks his partner - "I have the same questions as the child. Why is the paper needed ? We never use any such paper and are still scientifically advanced and loving and affectionate. And why is Man 1 behaving differently from Man 2 ?"
( You can complete the story in whichever way you want.... but try to answer the questions before. )

Shit like this pisses me off. Because you know there's someone out there that was in her situation and is still in that situation. I bet there's even people she works with that still haven't paid off their debts but some old fuck paid her bills. Just imagine how they feel. It's ridiculous.

It's not a heart-warming story. It's actually horrifying that she needs a wealthy Samaritan to pay for her education. What a twisted country the US is.

wladwladwladwlad (1 year ago)
No. I just think that education should be free for everyone, not just available to rich people and those lucky enough to find a samaritan to pay for it.
