    Don't forget Cuba. Mr. Castro offered physicians and medical staff and supplies. If I remember the news correctly, it was 1200 doctors!

    It should also be noted that this aid was offered immediately when the disaster hit and we were all told that the USA could handle it.

    The USA has not been ignored by the world.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    We just sent $1000.00 to the Humane Society to help with animal rescue. They must not be ignored either. God gave us responsibility for the animals in Genesis.

    Tiny Ireland sent €1 million euro today ($1.25 million).

    The EU has issued an official appeal to her member states to aid in the relief.

    Argetina and Cuba have been at the forefront of offering practical aid in the way of doctors and reduced costs oil.

    I am deeply touched that nations which have so little for their own will share with the wealthiest nation in the world.

    I think it is important that we accept these funds, not for our sakes, but for theirs. No man should be denied the right to help his neighbor. There is a dignity in being able to say, "I helped."

    God bless people from places that have so little and yet give so much, and God bless those who have much and give much.

    All aid should be gratefully accepted as long as it comes without a "sermon" attached.

    I don't even mind the sermons. We have given millions of sermons to other nations. Its their turn. ;)

    I remember on 911 when Rudy told a Saudi Prince to takes a hike along with the 10 Million dollars he offered as assistance, because of the "sermon" that came with it.

    If you want to help, help. If you want to preach, preach. But please don't expect that one gives you the right to do the other.

    It is usually those with the least that give the most. I read somewhere that the poorest give more to charities than the rich.

    It is a blessing to see others wanting to help the US. And I am glad that the animals have not been forgotten, either. I know that it would make me extremely upset if something happened to my dog. She is like a child to me.
