    A girl in the next car over was counting out change. She sees my window down and asked. Do you have a quarter I can get from you? I, reached in my wallet for one.But instead gave her a $5. She was so happy as her and another girl ran into the store. They both yelled . We get to eat today! They made me feel happy.

    Great story as usual, but just wondering... is it wise to give out the money in $100.00 denominations? Don't most small businesses refuse bills over $20.00?

    Me: "I'm not gonna cry, this time."
    One minute into this story: ugly crying.
    Another inspiring, encouraging piece of beautiful journalism!
