#139 Amazing Grace
As I checked in a customer, he began giving me his sad history - trying to find a job, save up money for his daughter’s class ring. A lady overheard us talking and flipped out her cell phone, calling her daughter at work, before giving the man some information. A few days later he came back to tell me the woman gave him a position! The kindness of people is truly amazing.
Beautiful. Love the title too!

Do you remember how we treat library books?
We hug them like they're our best friends!

Oh my goodness :( :(
THIS COUNTRY GIVES EVERYONE AN EDUCATION, AND IT IS F-R-E-E. HIGH SCHOOL IS F-R-E-E, AND IF YOU EXCEL, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ATTEND COLLEGE FOR F-R-E-E TOO.
PEOPLE LIKE THE GUY HOLDING THE SIGN IN THIS PICTURE REFUSE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR CHOICES AND ACTIONS. THEY MAKE THE CHOICE TO IGNORE EDUCATION AND HARD WORK, AND THEY CHOOSE INSTEAD TO GANGBANG, BUY GUNS, COMMIT CRIMES, DO DRUGS, BUY $400 TENNIS SHOES, GET TATTOOS, WEAR GOLD TEETH, AND LIVE LIKE THUGS. THE PEOPLE THAT IGNORE EDUCATION AND HARD WORK DIG THEIR OWN GRAVE.
EITHER YOU GET IT OR YOU DON’T: EVERYONE ON THIS PLANET CAN C-H-O-O-S-E TO GROW INTELLECTUALLY, WORK HARD, AND CONTRIBUTE SOMETHING OF VALUE TO THIS WORLD.
Reblogging for the beautiful rant above
So you just wanted to let us know…?
*patron calls library*
Patron: So I have a book that is overdue, but I am going to return it tomorrow.
Coworker: okay, would you like me to renew it so you won’t get anymore fines?
Patron: No, I already renewed it. I’m going to return it tomorrow.
Coworker: …Okay then. Anything else I can help you with?
Patron: No, that will be all. Bye!
This is how many children that died in their Hunger Games, without even being mentioned throughout the three books. All these children were under 18. All these children had parents. All these parents’ hearts sank to their knees during their child’s reaping. All these parents saw their terrified child off at the train station. All these parents heard the sound that signified their child’s death. All these parents received their cold, dead child in a wooden box. All these parents’ lives ended there. All these parents could say or do nothing. All these parents were merely thanked that they gave up their child. Thanked.
And the media focuses on the love triangle.
