The difference between charity and philanthropy is the distance of the soul . . . To be philanthropic is to give something, to be charitable is to give one’s own heart.
- Maya Angelou
The world is filled with stories of everyday
people who find themselves in life or death
situations and miraculously live to tell about it.
They overcome life-threatening illnesses, they
survive their houses being destroyed by tornadoes,
they are saved after being swept away by flood waters
or after losing their way in a storm.
But these stories are more than tales
of survival; they are inspiring stories about
the faith and hope that sustain us in
times of trouble.
Mr. Inspiration comes to Sin City (not so much anymore) and we're glad to receive him. Also, Whitney in heaven.
A climber has his faith restored and his life saved when he survives snow blindness and an avalanche on Mt. Everest.
