  1. I’m not a Christian and I often have issues with people who call themselves Christian because they seem to be more concerned with acting like they’re the chosen ones rather than living the main message of Christ which I do believe very deeply and which I see is to love your neighbour, help the helpless, feed the hungery, clothe the naked and house the homeless and help them on their way to helping themselves. This woman is beautiful and amazing. I see her as a woman of courage and love who believes that change for the better can happen anywhere to anyone and it doesn’t depend on money….just belief, love and courage and the willingness to put those things to work.
