Another Awesome Life Well Lived!

Just when I thought I had read the most inspiring story ever (last post), I came across the story of Anna Kurzweil of Kansas City. A lifelong teacher and student of learning who put faith and others first in her life.


A world traveler (working in a leper colony!) gifted educator, writer, and poet, she counted her wealth in the friends she made, the family she loved and the faith she treasured, not in her bank book.  But oh how her bank book told its own story!

Upon her death, the faith-based charities she honored were stunned to learn they would be the recipients of Anna’s $2 million estate!

Another amazing life well-lived and a benefit to mankind in general and their local community.

    The thing people don’t get is that ordinary people like this could not become millionaires if we started having things like “free college” and “free healthcare.” Imagine someone on a middle class income needing to pay $500 per month for universal college and $1500 per month for universal healthcare, each and every paycheck. Even if they were very frugal with their money, they would have nothing left to save and invest.

      Yes, the Surprise Millionaires are the best advertisement for a free market economy you could possibly have!
