This is a story about a man who made a small mistake, one that anybody would make (he was in possession of a small amount of drugs). He was sent away to prison for a long time. When he got out, he was not able to get a job or rent an apartment because of his felony status.
He complained about people not reading his facebook first and wanting to have a actual voice conversation over the phone. Then he explains how he feels about social media is basically separating us more then what it should have been doing. Bringing us together.
*That's why I don't use facebook!*
People should care and love each other more.

Most Helpful Girl
our societies have been driven by FEAR and personal gain for way to long sadly. Fear and gain are the drives for most of people. They still choose between two evils by mere cold calculations of what is best for them if they can gain, otherwise - run away. Unfortunately, this model of behaviour is way to common. There are a lot of good people out there amongst homeless people as well.
People get surprised in unbelieve when you offer something out of kindness and concern for their wellbeing, abilities, or any other need. I have been recently doing few things for my neighbours - like offered them help with walking dogs and a bit of gardening, since one of them has a broken arm and can't do these things until her arm heals. The lady insisted on me accepting money for my help, which I didn't want, but the envelop was basically handed to me and I couldn't back out of that without a fight, so I accepted with grace :) Then I realised that they would only be comfortable with my help if they can pay for it! I am not a professional dog walker or a gardener. They did it in a nice way though. I think we are both very appreciative of being able to help one another. They asked me few times after (still walking the dogs) if I want any more money - had to politely decline and explained that I was actually gaining some exercise and a break from my computer based work.
It is crazy that people think that they can get help only if they can pay in some form or shape in return!1
