Kids around the world are showing their true colors with inspiring stories that rise above the pain caused by the pandemic of 2020. Here are just a few examples of what the younger generation are doing to build a better tomorrow. 
Jeffrey Chuong, Bryce Liu and Omar Busaidy parents are health care workers. During the pandemic, they saw the strain on their parents that Covid-19 was causing, but they also saw the rest of the medical staff being overtaxed as well. They wanted to help. Because of the workload, the hospital staff had problems in getting something to eat. The boys created Food for Heroes. The GoFundMe project has raised over $4500 for food and delivery to health care workers in Houston, Texas.
Just imagine what you could do.

The Shiny and Dull Side of Aluminum Foil
The Shiny And Dull Side Of Aluminum Foil
Vocabulary
Story Audio
Aluminum Foil has mystified cooks and chefs around the world. Which side should you be using when cooking your delectable dishes? Everyone has a different answer.
So, have you been doing it all wrong? Finally, you have an answer to the question, and guess what, the mystery is truly a figment of your imagination.
According to Reynold’s, the manufacture of aluminum foil, there is no right or wrong side. The dull and shiny side occurs during the milling process of making the foil.
“Where the foil is in contact with another layer, that’s the ‘dull side. The ‘shiny’ side is the side milled without being in contact with another sheet of metal. The performance of the foil is the same, whichever side you use,” the company explains.
So, relax grandma. Christmas dinner will still be the wonderful meal you remember as a girl.
