B.K Randi

Lost the use of his right arm 20 years ago in a textile mill accident, his tennis scholarships for college, and still gained his arm back through physical therapy. He was compensated with $2000 for the incident.
Lost the lives of both of his children 20 years ago for reasons that he will not disclose to me beyond the fact that it was not his fault.
Has been divorced for 18 years.
Works at Flo's.
Is the happiest man I have met in my entire life.
Is enough reason for me to remember that making money is still not the most important thing in the world, but for some reason I can't help but feel bad for not being a provider even when I don't have a family.

Money does make the world go 'round. But it does not make it a happy place.

What a vicious conundrum.
