It is hard enough in today's world to live without having one indiscretion you had at the ripe old age of let's say twenty years follow you and hunt you down.

The term crimes against humanity has come to mean anything atrocious committed on a large scale. This is not, however, the original meanin...

brian_eggleston
Korashk

(1) But sitting at home doing nothing all day is unhealthy and demoralising. What the handicapped need is stimulation, dignity and companionship together with plenty of exercise and fresh air. The fact is, working on a farm will give them all of those things in addition to the...
