|"Those soldiers..." Seriously? No, I don't want you to go there; even that was too much. Those soldiers who are risking their lives and their only comfort found in a dog was never given a second thought until it found an American soldier willing to love it.
When will we ever find the time to reach out and help someone or something else, if we don't start now. Don't guilt others into believing what you think should be done. There are still some people who are not stuck into thinking that 'we should come first', and I hope it stays that way.
Why does anyone help anyone outside of America? Why do people go to third-world countries and devote themselves to helping those who cannot help themselves? My dentist recently went on a missions trip with other dentists and doctors to a third-world country. Why did they do that? They did not have to, there are many people who could use their help here in America-and pay. They did it because they CARED. They did not limit themselves to what they saw around them in America. They reached out, and freely gave their own time and money to HELP others. Why can not those who love animals do the same? Please do not put down others just because they have a desire to do something that goes against your own personal beliefs.
