gun found

A gun that is 132 years old was found resting against a tree in Nevada's Grand Basin National Park.  It had apparently been there for over 100 years.  The colors of the gun had blended in with the surroundings and made it look like part of the tree.  Part of the wooden base was buried.  It's not in great shape but should be able to be preserved.  gun

beautiful girl, beautiful dress

Kristen went to her Junior Prom and found the perfect dress.  It made her feel like a princess.  When it was time for her Senior Prom, she put the dress up for sale and posted a picture of her wearing it.  She hoped to raise money so that she could purchase a new dress.  Unfortunately some people are so cruel.  Negative comments were posted about her and the dress.  She stood up to the online bullies and her community rallied around  her.  They posted positive comments and also raised $400 so that she could buy a new  princess dress for her Senior Prom.  Kristen
