hope for humanity

So, this page caught my eye when i was reading People’s Magazine. This couple right here is Allen & Violet Large. Allen is 75 & Violet is 78. They met in 1964. Ever since 1983, they have purchased two lottery tickets every week. Last year, Violet called the lottery hotline to check out the winning numbers, & turns out they won. They won $11.2 million dollars. & guess what they did with it? They donated it all to doctors, their own country, family. & kept none for themselves.

They say they are content with their ’87 Dodge Diplomat Suburban & their 148 year old Victorian home. Here’s a quote from Violet near the end:

“Money can’t buy happiness.” “We have everything we need; I have Allen and he has me.”


i just can’t tell how very happy i am. there’s hope for humanity after all…
