If thanking a veteran for his/her service, doesn’t seem like quite enough to you, consider mailing care packages to currently deployed members of the military. A friend of mine (a U.S. Army Veteran) has coordinated care package donations the past two Novembers. With the support of our local VFW and YMCA we collected enough snacks, socks, toiletries, etc. to produce 25+ care packages in 2018. This year we gathered enough items to fill more than 70 boxes. - Local merchants gave money to cover shipping costs. - Youngsters at a local daycare made pictures to enclose in each box. - A nearby military base identified which troops will receive these care packages and provided the necessary shipping information. - Our local post office helped to identify the most affordable, reliable...

Dear people with physical disabilities I don't understand but I can imagine that you can’t move or have trouble moving and people might see you as a burden and it can be hard to hear that but I don't think that.I hope that you have a good caretaker or that people are kind to you because I know that people can be cruel this isn’t okay. Care takers shouldn't be in it for the money they should care for you because they care for you! My mom has seen this before she was giving a massage for one of her patients and her caretaker was so cruel to her she said that she wouldn't help her get out of the wheelchair and wouldn't help her in general and said “I didn't sign up for this” and was so just mean to the woman. I imagine it’s hard not being in control of your body and you might feel like...

Dear people who lost their homes due to natural disasters, I’m not calling you homeless. I wish I could understand what you’re going through. I’m so sorry. No one should ever have to go through this. If I would do anything to help you out, I could. I really could. I’m just really glad that you’re safe, and no harm has come to you, whoever reads this. I hope you have all the help you need to survive this tragedy. If not, I promise I will do everything I can to help you out, even if I can’t give you too much. 150 million people each decade have to evacuate their homes due to sudden natural disasters and get displaced from their homes. Currently, the country with the most evacuees is China because 14 million people evacuate their homes each year due to disasters. I am...

Dear people with blindness, I see you. I can't imagine how hard it is to not see. You have to walk around not knowing what might happen or what's happening. People have to help you walk so you don't hit objects like furniture. I know what struggles you go through, but there will always be someone to help you out. In fact about 39 million people in the world are blind and that number is rising. Also, 37% of blind people are employed. That means it is possible for you to try to live a normal live and make money. Mark Twain said, “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” This shows just because you’re blind doesn't mean you can't have fun or enjoy life. There will be someone who will show you kindness. You do matter to society, even if people think you are...

Dear Well-Meaning Straight People, Okay, first off, I want you to know I’m not mad. I’m not judging you. Rather, this is supposed to be a helpful letter saturated with advice and the best intentions for you. Honestly, I’m helping you so hear me out. Like every other gay person out there, I was petrified to come out. And the worst part was having to do it again and again to each family member and friend. So, you can imagine how relieved I was when that was all over and I knew they all accepted me; I was now free to live my life. Except, it didn’t stop there. It still hasn’t stopped, and it never will. You see, the thing they never tell you on all the Buzzfeed “Am I Gay or Overthinking It?” quizzes is that you never stop coming out. You have to do it every time you start another...

My hand, feet and scalp sweat a lot, AS IN A LOT. I'm typing this letter with my hand covered in sweat. I'm wearing a refreshing clothes, lying in my bed at my well ventilated room. Why the heck am I sweating? I sweat a lot and it's more than you know. Sometimes, eventhough it's cold I sweat. When I'm writing in a paper, it have becomes wet. I remembered when I have to sign my name in every event I attended there were times that my hands are very sweaty and it became a lot worse because I was nervous that people on the desk might see my hands and become disgusted as I make the paper damp with my sweat in my hands. I don't even apply lotion anymore because it triggers my sweatness. But whenever I feel so really really dry I apply a teeny tiny amount and apply it and pray to God that I...

Before I start this letter I would like to say that I have been in some relationships and I have failed in all my relationships. But, when I look back I see nothing but winning instead of failure because I learned some things that I can work on my next relationship until I find the right one. In this letter, I will provide some tips for the male daters out there in Hong Kong. I will give a couple of tips on how to improve your dates or in your case your first date. The first tip is whenever you go on your date in Hong Kong especially your first date you want to bring a rose for your loved one.

August 5, 2019 David Asscherick 85 Phillip St Chinderah, NSW Dear Friends and Churches of the NNSW Conference, It has come to my attention that there is a newly created website which has posted my June 19, 2019 letter to the North New South Wales (NNSW) Executive Committee (EC). I’d like to say several things about this specifically and about the Nominating Committee (NC) situation generally. Firstly, regarding the website, I know nothing at all about it and do not know who created it. I don’t even have suspicions about who it might be. What I can say is that I was not asked permission for my letter to be shared in this way. Furthermore, had I been asked I would not have granted such permission, as my letter was not intended as an open letter. If the creator of this...

In all honesty, I couldn't imagine myself actually driving a car in an actual traffic. To me, driving was something other people managed but not something that I could pull off in a million years. Well, things change and as you probably all know, once you fight away the fear and start learning something properly, it gets easier. I want to address everyone who's like me; someone who completely disregards the possibility to drive a car. Honestly, you can do it. It may seem scary at first, and it is, honestly. but you'll get a hang of it. Your focus suddenly sharpens and you actually can follow the rules with ease. You just need a bit of practice; that's why we have driving schools and instructors. Since I was always so nervous about driving, I actually started almost a year ago. No, I...
