9. I know we do....
My son will stop and talk to the down and out, help them in any way he can. He quit a good job to stay home with his twin daughters, and works a couple part-time jobs in the evenings when his wife is home.
The only drawback he has is the spouts some of the Republican talking points--I think just to get to me, though.

I feel that our future looks a little brighter with kids like these around.
