The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have too much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.
Coming to age in the 60s almost requires you to have been classified as a “bleeding heart liberal” at some time in your youth yet I like to think that my leftist leanings were well tempered by my early indoctrination into the writings of Ayn Rand, so at best I consider myself an independent thinker, at worst, a capitalistic philanthropist.
Politically I refuse to get involved in the name calling and blame laying. I think the best of intentions are corrupted by politics and the worst offenders can be used by the Almighty. My two cents isn’t going to change the outcome so I keep it myself. I believe those who are convinced they know a better way should do their best to make it happen. Those of us who don’t have clue should stay out of the way, keep out mouths shut and pray for those who are out there doing something.
With that said, I will get to the point of this article.
No matter what your political bent, if you are reading this, you likely have a heart for those less fortunate than yourself and an interest in the people and needs of San Felipe.
Right now, as you read this, the reserves put away for the summer food distributions and aide for the families with severely disabled children (in San Felipe) have dwindled down dangerously close to the bottom and it is only August. Volunteers Without Limits still has two more months (at least) of HOT weather before their gracious friends from the north return to San Felipe.
