Noted and shared. That was a wonderful story. It seems like people without much are always doing the most to help people with less. Maybe it's because they have been there or are almost there and they do not judge and consider the people less fortunate as "takers." Thanks for sharing this story Cal.

The sad thing is that bringing attention to her kindness will probably result in her being deported. It seems that its only people who have been through hard times who recognize the needs in others. Sometimes it only takes a small act of kindness to push someone off the downward spiral and give them dreams again. Kudos to her!
