Giving Those with Disabilities a Friend with 4 Paws

Posted by Sevenly on Feb 24, 2014 7:49:03 AM

Anyone who has ever owned a dog knows firsthand that the saying, “A dog is a man’s best friend” is more than just a saying. It is easy to recount family canines from childhood and to start listing the reasons why your dog was and is near and dear to your heart. They are the first to welcome you home from a long day, make better walking buddies than an iPhone, keep feet warmer than blankets can and can be one of the most loyal companions you will ever have.

Let Me Tell You About LSTN

Posted by Nick Jacobs on Feb 11, 2014 1:11:19 PM

My mom makes the best biscuits and gravy in the world. Hands down. I can hear The Jackson 5 playing loudly in the background as my mom cooks for my brother and I. The smells and the sounds are impossible to separate. It seems that of my favorite memories involve food or music; and usually both.

Sevenly Selected As One Of Facebook's Top 10 Stories Of The Last 10 Years Of Facebook

Posted by Sevenly on Feb 4, 2014 8:23:04 AM

There was singing and dancing in the hospital room after Loic came out of surgery. He sat on the bed with his legs in hard casts stretching out in front of him, while his mom joined a roomful of doctors and nurses clapping and singing a traditional African song. The joy in the room starkly contrasted the tension only moments before, when Loic’s mom released her son’s hand and waited to hear if he would be able to walk and run again.
