1. It is really sad but a person like him will probably never even think about that.
He sounds a lot like my father, an abusive, long-term alcoholic who is a teabagger.
People like my father never stop to consider how their behavior affects others. They are completely and totally self-centered in a way most normal people (like us) can't even begin to comprehend.
In his mind, most likely his children exist to serve HIS needs.
I've learned people like that - like my father - only look like human beings on the outside. It's as if they are pod people, not fully human, lacking a soul, unable to feel empathy for others or act as a decent person.
Yeah, this guy does an heroic job - but I'll bet you anything he does it not because he wants to help others, but solely for the money and glory.
