Which is, in reality, the case with most of us, in spite of the Left's self-delusion about having a monopoly on compassion. Conservatives devote their own time and resources; liberals frequently think their job is done when they've succeeded in foisting another taxpayer-supported program on everybody (and recall the paltry charitable contributions made by rich liberals like John Kerry).
But there are few enough, of any political persuasion, who are willing to go as far as conservative blogger Suzanna Logan. She recently turned down a job in Washington, D.C. in order to do volunteer work with poor children in Atlanta over the summer.
Our Lord's appeal to us to help those less fortunate than ourselves was (and is) directed to each of us, as individuals, because charity benefits the giver as well as the ones who receive; His words were not a demand for the impersonal socialist welfare state. So, I offer my heartfelt commendations to Ms. Logan for her selfless devotion to those truly in need, and I wish her the best of luck.
