    In an interview with NPR, Bach says it felt like a calling from God.

    "It was a very, very profound feeling and experience. It's kind of hard to even describe in words," she says. "Like there was something that I was supposed to do."

    At first Bach wasn't sure what that was, beyond a sense that it should address some need that wasn't already being met by existing charities.

    Funded by money raised through church circles back home, Bach rented a large house in one of Jinja's poorer districts, called Masese, and began testing out options, including starting a program to serve a free hot meal to neighborhood children. Twice a week about 1,000 of them would line up by Bach's house to receive a bowl of food. Bach named her charity "Serving His Children."

    According to Bach, word of her feeding program spread through Jinja. In the fall of 2009, she says, she got a call from a staffer at the local children's hospital asking if she could help out with several severely malnourished children.

    Bach says the staffer told her that from a medical standpoint, these kids had been stabilized. They just needed to be fed back to health. Could Bach take them in?

    Bach says seeing a child in this state — impossibly thin arms, ribs poking out, sunken eyes — "was almost an out-of-body experience. And a sense of, 'Oh my goodness, this isn't right. This needs to stop.' "

    She says she agreed to help the children. And before long she came to feel that this was God's plan for her: turn the house into a center where malnourished children and their mothers could live while the youngsters recuperated — complete with free rations of the special foods they would need, the medicines doctors had prescribed and lessons for the mothers on nutrition ... and the Bible.

    You really want to do something you're unqualified to do? Just say God called you to do it. People won't doubt you very much.

    No, that was Fishy. I didn't jump in on that because everyone else already handled it. I wasn't going to come in with a 450 splash off the top rope when he was already the victim of a Stone Cold Stunner and a Pedigree already.

    Modesto denies permit for straight pride rally, citing safety concerns and no liability insurance.

    Bummer. Kind of wanted to see these morons put their idiocy on display and be outnumbered 15-1.

    Re: Nice Planet: Screw It, I'm Outta Here

    Idk what thread to put this in but I went to my friend’s wedding a while back and met some of her family. Her nephew is autistic but he was probably ten years old or so and had a great time at the wedding dancing up a storm. Fast forward to now and she gave me an update about him, apparently his dad took him to a bunch of Trump rallies and now hes kind of a loner and part of the incel community. And apparently the last time she saw him he said some really awkward creepy stuff to her (I didn’t really get the details on that but I can only imagine.

    I don’t have kids but that sounds like some stellar parenting right there.

    That's just great. Though TBH you'd have a hard time spotting who's autistic among Republicans these days.

    Woodbury is next to GD Oakdale. It has a lot of middle and high income earners, good schools, not a terrible place

    That party is literally a who's who of autists, sociopaths, daddy issues, and just straight-up arseholes.

    Pretty much. DX would know more, since he actually lives in goddam Oakdale.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
