On the other hand Roll-in Showers are designed to be a  waterproof area large enough to accommodate a person in a wheelchair to remain in the chair to shower.

I've helped elderly people cross the street even when they didn't want to cross.

I have shown an indigenous tribe in the Amazon how to use the internet after they thought computers were scary machines.

I know the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars.

I stopped to tie my shoe while running with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain.

I love my parents and want them to be safe and happy in our home.
