Inspirational Jul 12, 2007
Thomas Cannon's story is one that should inspire everyone to be more generous with their time and money. There's no shortage of stories about people who went from rags to riches, and this is not one of them. Instead, this is about a man who didn't mind rags and gave away the riches. His life example challenges us to reflect on what we really need to be happy, and shows us just how much happiness can be gained from freely giving to others.
