I agree wholeheartedly with your message, with small quibble. As one living below the poverty line, statistics like the ones you quoted only make me feel bad. The reality of my life is that I live in America and it costs a lot more to live in America than it does in some countries. Even for a simple life with just the basics. So while we would like to do more for the worlds poor, and for those are more more poor that we are in this country, it really isn't going to happen. We will be lucky to keep food on the table and buy a few presents for the kids. Not every American is greedy and materialistic, some of us are just trying to get by.

Kim, a wonderful point. Thanks for the reminder. And this, of course, is the reason so many are protesting in the various "Occupy" movements.

And for what it's worth, I experience the Quinn family as one of the most giving families I know. Thanks for leading the way in service and obedience.
