see!.. pick the right person and the right things happen.

This is why Maria was chosen. I've been saying all along... she gives the most, not needs the most. Her efforts are compounded by others just because it was her.

Now this is a story.:)

All you haters... go away..your not needed on this story.

WAY TO GO MARIA!

perfectly put..

"The Ruiz family was nominated to receive the home because of their efforts to feed, clothe and shelter needy families in Juárez. Maria Ruiz was named a Top 10 CNN Hero late last year."

Key words. "NOMINATED" and "EFFORTS" toped with "HERO" to lots and lots of kids regardless of what side of the border they were conceived.

I'll be making a trip over there tomorrow morning with my donation. I have a lot of clothes I don't wear any anymore and I have food in my pantry that I can gladly share. What a great worthy cause!

I still believe one of the other finalists should have been chosen. Someone in Sparks, Sunland, Agua Dulce or San Eli. Maria lived in a 2 story home...this is ridiculous!!!

SparksSunlandAguaDulce person.. you are right! A sparks family should've been chosen since so many families in this area dont have clothes/food & even proper utilities.. I'm tired of seeing trailers moved into empty lots w/ no water, gas.. electric cords being shared from 1 trailer to another & a fence made out of car hoods!!
Ty Pennington come give this whole barrio a make-over... we really need it!!

P.S.- Also send the guy from Animal Planet to neuter all the dogs!!

Hey, since your the only one in Sparks to have a computer maybe next time you can nominate one of your neighbors.
In the mean time be happy for one of our own El Pasoans that has done more for others than even her own family.
This is what we all should do ........take care of each other. Instead of always being negative when good things come to those that deserve them.
Again GOD BLESS the Ruiz family and continue doing what you do.

Would those be right Angles or acute angles?
