Soup kitchens, etc.


Just got back from the GK disaster relief operations in RFM gym on Pioneer. So tired. Like they say in the movies, I’m too old for this shit. The younger people there, however, were a cheerful hardworking lot. You guys are wonderful human beings. If this is what youth means, then I hope you never grow up.
