Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
Last week, I forgot my flash drive in the computer lab at my school. I got an email from one of the workers in the lab, letting me know that I had left it.
I thought it was no big deal, until it occurred to me that in order to identify me, they must have had to actually look at the contents of the flash drive.
Which means they might have seen this
all before finally getting to my school folder.
