As we were driving down a long stretch of deserted road, we came upon an elderly...

At home, television, school, street, church. Every day we deal with different people in all that influence and are influenced, we must appreciate what we see and not to be taken away by bad examples.

Brandon Ellis from Kenai Alaska FEBRUARY 24, 2011
Sometimes it is not that we go out of our way to teach somebody a good value but to just be there to lead them by being ourselves. Good habits as well as bad habits are enough to change someone’s life if we do our best to always be a good example then we should have nothing to worry about.
