Tsunami relief
by Gigi Pilcher


December 31, 2004

I heard the President's message regarding U.S. financial assistance for the Tsunami
disaster. As a result, I have donated to one of the non-profit organizations that will
be assisting the victims.

While governments can and should use some tax dollars for helping out in situations such as this one, I believe that we, as individuals living in one of the richest countries in the world, can and should be counted on to donate.

We should never leave it solely up to the government to "take care of it" for us.
