You are correct.

I have seen many, who themselvs are living on the margins, have little to nothing to show to their credit, yet helping to bear the hardships and crosses of others near to them as family or friends, at remarkable and most humbling degrees.

I once went out, when I was able to, and hired two guys who lived at a Group home, to help me do various work around my yard for the day. I agreed to pay each person by the hour. 

Shortly after the start of work, one of the guys felt sick and said that he could not continue to work. So, I had him sit down and rest comfortably, under my front porch, while his friend and I continued the work through the early afternoon.

Throughout the work, his  friend would stop frequently  to go and check on his friend.

At the end of the work day, I paid each worker,  according to the hours that each had worked, and an amazing thing happened. The gentleman that worked throughout, took his pay, split it up, and gave one part to the other, who quite early on, was unable to continue the work, and by no fault of his, and hence,  was unable to earn the expected total wage.

In short, he worked for himself and for his friend who was unable to work and to have earned as much.

Without any doubt in my mind, the men were disguised angels, with a packed message and model, for altruistic living even in the midst of apparent emptiness, and extreme lack.

Nice story FactoremBlue Angel, thanks for sharingThumbs Up

    Tyler, do you have a link with the statement from the attorney?

    I tried to post a link and Lottery Post just warned me I can't do that. so look it up on the NY Post, they article is about Pedro's child support but if you keep reading his lawyer address the rumor that he would pay all his neighbors rent.  Pedro's Lawyer says that he never said he would do that.

    All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

      I think the Lawyer told Pedro, to tell him to say that. Sort of as a disclaimer. What?

              I think he should pay their rent anyway, if they ask him nicely.

                Bless his heart.

                Fernandez, who is also handling Quezada’s trust, said the now-retired deli owner from the Dominican Republican has other benevolent plans.

                “He wants to set up a foundation for homeless children in the Dominican Republic and here.”

                    I don't know sounds like the lawyer is doing all the talking now to protect PedroWhat?

                    "After the hearing, Fernandez dismissed rumors that Quezada had offered to pay his neighbors’ rent for a month or two."

                    “While his heart goes out to families in need,” Fernandez said, “his family comes first.”

                        That's a shame, I really thought he would do his poverty stricken neighbors a blessing.

                          Right now Pedro is only thinking about his family needs which is rightfully so. Now later on he may pay his old neighborhood a visit.

                          “While his heart goes out to families in need,” Fernandez said, “his family comes first.”
