    Something To Think About.....

    Advertisement



    In a time when the economy has taken a down turn and a society that has become so self absorbed that we forget about the things we take for granted. Despite this, there are still selfless people out there that are willing to give you the shirt off their back. This is a fine example right here:

    Best wishes to Brenden and his family.

    Thank you for posting that. It helped me realize that I can be a whole lot more selfless. Here I am whining about my medical problems and look at the strong, brave 11 year old. This story is so inspiring.

    Amen, anela. Thanks for posting, Noob!

    We all need a reminder that despite our own ailments or problems, there is usually going to be those whose lives make ours pale in comparison.

    I thank God every day for my beautiful wife and children and all the blessings I have!

    Very touching, young and thoughtful. Sometimes we all get caught up in the everyday stresses of work family and the worlf and forget that there are ppl fighting for there lives. I loved that at the end of each day they said 3 positive things from the day. Let's start a thread. "List something positive about your day!". What do ya think Bes noob? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Here is another update about Brenden Foster. Unfortunately, he left this world just recently but he also left something in each every one of us that has heard about this story. As we get closer and closer to the holidays I hope that each one of us and can take a moment to give back to someone in need.

    Thank you so much for the updates. Yesterday, I found myself wondering if he had passed on. Such an inspiring story! We need more caring people in this world, more people who want to help others.

    Thank you Brendan, you inspired me more than anyone I know.
