12. Smiling, I never stated that you should give "all" or "any" of your funds,

but rather I noticed within your post - what I considered a very normal "contradiction"... while "some of us" have a quality of life, there are so many that do not. While "we" enjoy our quality of life, we are faced on a daily basis with the inequality of life.

No, I was neither condemning you, judging you, (where is that spell checker?), or even making a statement directly about you... I was making a "comment,... where I don't have an answer" about all of the "we' that still have some quality of life. We go about our lives and have become used to the idea of seeing the homeless, some through personal choices, some because of mental illness (thank you Ronald R.), other through just bad luck. But we are used to it and have come to accept it as 'normal'.

I don't want you to do any more than you normally would, that would not be fair to you or yours; but rather, I am glad that you commented on it, because it forces us to think... what answers we will discover will be the direct result of our personal life journey - what we have put in, and what we get out.

It is confusing to me now...


Happy Holidays.
