US: Wow, just wow

(Washington) Jonny Kim born 1985 in Los Angeles to South Korean parents. After graduating from Santa Monica High School in 2002, Kim enlisted in the Navy as a seaman and made the cut for the elite SEAL team. Earning his way onto San Diego-based SEAL Team Three, Kim served as a sniper, navigator and point man, among other roles, on over 100 combat missions in the Middle East, earning Silver and Bronze stars. In 2006 while in Iraq, two of Kim’s closest friends were shot on the same day. Kim was serving as a medic and treated one of the friends who had a facial wound. Neither friend survived. The deaths of his friends left him with a “feeling of helplessness” and led to his decision to become a doctor. After earning a mathematics degree from the University of San Diego in 2012, Kim went to Harvard Medical School earning a medical degree in 2016. One year into his residency at Massachusetts General Hospital Kim would learn he had been chosen as a NASA astronaut candidate out of a pool out of over 18,000 applicants.

Here's a chocolate shop:
Fancy a good night out with the kids:
What happens if you can't be asked to go out, why you order in:
Hey I'll admit that some people in Gaza will be poor, but there are poor people the world over.but its not the concentration camp full of starving people the media likes to push out. Oh if you have time watch this video from Gazan Vlogger  Khaleel Moeen where he video blogs about shopping in Gaza. From the looks of things he has a decent dentist, which will help with all the sweet stuff they stuff themselves with in Gaza, Which helps explain why Gaza has an obesity problem
