Hi chet bake ur speech is effective and right:
Unfortunately, how many people can live free? If you are an office clerk, you have to stay in office for more than 10 hours a day, you may have 1.5 days off if you are lunck. "Free" is too expensive for someone who don't have money to support themseleve and their family.
thank you cuz u remember me about freedom.
goodluck
our life is like a night mare

Here I am, GOD."


This was shared to me. And I love it. I'm sharing this to all.


This is really special! :)

When I opened my book this morning, the message below caught my eye.

"Being told you can't do something motivates you to prove them wrong."

Maybe you'll find this inspiring as well... :-)

Hello lovely friends, today (and forever will...) this inspires me... :-)

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."

-Mother Teresa-

Please reflect on this and let's all listen to our innerself. And maybe you'll come to understand why I find this inspiring.

Tobacco is a filthy weed,
Which from the Devil does proceed;
It drains your purse, it stains your clothes,
And makes a chimney of your nose

You build a successful career, regardless of your field of endeavor, by the dozens of little things you do on and off the job.
