I learned from store owners that he suffered schizophrenia and was pretty much a loner. He was always very polite to me when he came...

    She was new to my school and we despised each other for the first year. Looking back on it now, I think it was only because we were so alike.

This is touching.

If you see someone new at the school you just walk over and say hi.
Chris Napolion, Vicksburg

This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
