I ran into my pastor, Bishop Green, when I was coming out of the post office. He was just as surprised to see me as I was him.

Beginning in August of this year, 2013, the Post Office will not be open on Saturdays because every Saturday it is open, it looses 25 Million dollars a day. By closing it down on Saturdays, it will be saving over a billion dollars a day.
The last Saturday that I went to the Post Office was last month. It was so crowed and everyone there seemed to be edgy. The line was the longest I ever saw at the Post Office.
For people who can’t get to the Post Office during the week, and depend on the Post Office being open on Saturdays, it’s going to be even harder for them.
The main reason for the Post Office troubles seems to be the internet.
His name is Charles. He is from Ghana. And this is his Story.
I was born healthy. However, at the age of 3 I got a disease called Polio. There were a lot of people catching it and dying. My mother took me to the doctor who gave me a shot which probably prevented death but left me crippled. I’ve been walking with crutches all my life.
I came to America a few years ago to get an education. However, I am not in school currently because I overstayed my visa. Now I am working to become legal so I could apply to school. After I finish school, I plan to go straight back to Africa. I don’t want to live in America.
Yes, education is much better in Africa but it’s also expensive. Here, in America, anyone can go to school. All you need is determination. I want to go to an university on the internet and get a free education.
With the education that I obtain, I would be able to help my people out more. I am the director of an non-government organization. With my organization and education background, I will be better off. My organization helps people with disabilities and those affected by disasters. It also has an orphanage, farming and tourism.
I aim to go to school for journalism and with a radio and TV background would be able to publicize my organization. I would like my organization to be between America and Ghana.
