The other day, I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things. While walking through the parking lot, I noticed a man stand on his shopping cart, and give a few pushes before jumping on. He smiled and laughed the entire way, loving life. He was about 50 and wearing a business suit. GMH.

Today I saw a video on the news about protesters being beat to death by police.
When one man was thrown to the ground, about to be beaten, a woman stepped in front of him (risking being beaten herself) and told the police to stop.
She was pregnant.
People like her GMH.

Today, my aunt dragged me along to the mall to go shopping. While in the store, she critisized me, calling me fat and comparing me to ‘Ugly Betty’. When I walked out of the store, a boy held the door open and whispered ‘I don’t know what she’s talking about’. GMH.

Today, I found GMH. After reading all the heartwarming stories, I walked into my room, and tore my suicide journal to shreds. I’m shaking out of happiness. GMH.

Freshman year, there was a crippled girl bound to a wheelchair. For 4 years, she did physical therapy and progressed to crutches. When we graduated a few weeks ago, she handed her crutches to an officer and walked across the entire stage. The applause from the seniors was deafening. She cried the whole way. GMH.

My family & I got separated in New York City when I was little. Scared, I sat crying on the sidewalk as tons of people passed by. A homeless man picked me up, comforted me, & carried me to a police officer, who found my parents. He had a long beard & I asked if he was Jesus. He laughed so hard he cried. He GMH.
Featuring a traditional Collegiate Gothic brick-and-stone exterior, the Stayer Center for Executive Education will become the home of the Mendoza College of Business Executive Education, supporting and serving working professionals through the Executive MBA degree programs, as well as custom and open Executive Programs. In contrast to the building’s classic exterior, the interior will sport contemporary design and finishes that convey an inviting and forward-thinking environment.
The three-story, 54,000-square-foot structure will occupy the land just south of the Mendoza College of Business. The facility will include a two-story grand concourse, chapel, five classrooms, small team breakout rooms, an executive lounge, a multi-purpose room and administrative offices. The building design features two-story windows, which will connect students, participants and staff with the campus and allow natural light to stream into the building.
Groundbreaking is tentatively planned for fall 2010 if total funding is achieved, with a completion target of spring 2012.
