American French Fry Brother

My two cents on the buzz around the American French Fry Brother. I think it’s great that this young man was so generous. Yet I don’t think it’s necessary to use this incident to shame people into acting with more generosity.  I do think that connecting with the marginalized is the best way to help.

Just telling the story will spur some people to open their eyes and give when they feel the time is right. It’s good to see some foreigners getting credit for doing good.

This week we’ve been a bit under siege I feel since the school has installed cameras outside the foreign teachers apartment building and motion detectors by the new patio. The motion detectors don’t turn on lights so they have no use. I suppose they would detect a skirmish or intruder.

    I hadn’t heard about this video, but I’ve been out of pocket for the last few days. Thanks SO much for sharing…. I needed that.
