I donít begrudge anyone a living, but making money by damaging the health of millions, or even billions, of people is a bit extreme.

    There is no doubt ...
  5. Never can say Goodbye.

    My friends mother passed away last night.

    Akram and I have been friends since we were 14. We weren't best friends, more like classmates that kept together. We even chose the same major after highschool and continued our friendship in college.

    About 8 months ago, there was a hit and run and her mother was hurt badly in the legs. It wasn't anything serious, she was in pain but the doctors said it was because of the shock, they couldn't find anything that would indicate ...
