Most Important Inventions

My grandpa's most important invention during his lifetime is the computer and the smart phone.

My other grandpa wrote his answer in an email to my mom, "The most significant invention created in my lifetime was the heart-lung machine, which enabled surgeons to perform open-heart surgery, and without which I would have probably died 15 or more years ago. So, you see, it's the most important invention TO ME. You might explain that the heart-lung machine circulates the blood throughout your body during surgery, while the surgeons perform the heart operation. You will recall that I had my procedure June 10, 1992."

Helping the Homeless

I am sad for other people that are homeless. It's because they have to live out in the rain and they have to stay really wet and they have almost nothing. But, there's mostly people in there that doesn't have homes in New York City. It's really sad for them. Click on play below (or click here) to hear me share.

Helping the Homeless Here are some ways we help homeless people and people who don't have a lot of things:

1. Have a canned food drive.

2. Send gifts to kids through Operation Christmas Child so they get things for Christmas.

3. Help 1Mission by building a house or raising money.

Have you ever been to 1Mission?

How do you help the homeless?
