“Over spring break, I did a three-day project where we slept outside in tents and volunteered helping the homeless at the Salvation Army and other organizations. At the end, we attended a Planning Commission meeting on the Lawrence Community Shelter renewal.”

“I helped a younger student with some personal problems she’d been having, because I could relate to her problems from my experiences when I was her age.”

I called the cops after watching someone hit another person's vehicle and drive away. I got their license plate # and county. I'd love to be there when they get that visit from the cops :) Dillons' parking lot is scary.

I took care of my friend's toads and cat when she had to go out of town.

Someone needed a bowl about an hour ago, so I got them one.

I'm concerned about Miles' response. Any homeless person who takes $5 from a 12 year old kid should be ashamed of himself.

I cleaned up my cat's puke so my wife and daughter didn't have to.

I warned a homeless person not to let anyone use his name to open a straw-man bank account.

Could i write Spanish? I think so... (I am spanish, but i read daily LJWorld. I like t very much). Maybe my comments will help someone to improve their Spanish...

La ðltima vez que yo ayude a alguien fue saliendo de un centro comercial en coche. Delante de mÃ- una chica no era capaz de subir la cuesta del parking. Constantemente se le paraba el coche (se le ahogaba, decimos en español). AsÃ- que me pidió si, por favor, yo podÃ-a sacar el coche de aquella cuesta en su lugar. Lo cierto es que su coche no tenÃ-a buena mecánica y sólo pude sacarlo de allÃ- frenando y acelerando a la vez para, una vez que el coche alcanzase un nivel de revoluciones adecuado, soltar el embrague y salir pitando...

Signatura: Angel, from Spain!
