You can feel the strength that comes from a warm embrace, a long chat with an old friend or even a simple word of encouragement over the phone. This year, reconnect with the people who are missing from your life, but not from your heart. A direct path to them is waiting for you. Find it at PeopleFinders.com.

Thursday, February 18, 2010 – a tragedy occurred today in Austin, Texas. At approximately 10am, a 53-year-old software engineer named Joseph Stack flew a Piper PA-28 Cherokee plane into the side of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) building. The building housed nearly 200 Federal employees.
Witnesses to the crash noticed the plane was flying unusually low, but said it did not appear to be out of control. The plane’s gas tank was full, and it erupted into a massive fireball after striking the side of the building. Plumes of thick, dark smoke billowed into sky, and debris continued to rain down from the building long after the collision.
Family, friends and strangers – you can brighten anyone’s day with a random act of kindness. Your good deed may have an even greater impact when it is completely unexpected. There are many things you can do to celebrate and participate in this day that is designed to make people happy.
