  1. This is what happens when we put love above all things. You never know who is having a hard time and I am glad these young men knew they needed to be leaders and not followers.

  2. I remeber seen a lot of kids like this in school even kids who would not have enough money for lunch it suked or gild trips if you can help do it there is still a lot of very poor people in the U.S
