That's a lot of Benjamins @ 01:19 pm

"If you had a padded expense account that allowed you to spend $1 million dollars a day on whatever you wanted, it would take you 1,918 years to spend as much as we've spent on Iraq and Afghanistan through March 2008 (approximately $700 billion)." - Iraq Insider

I really do not think that a price can be put on freedom, nor on safety from fear and tyranny.

While I agree... there is a lot of fear and tyranny in the world, we can't save everyone, nor should we try.

According to the words of Jesus Christ, while He was personally present on earth, we are instructed to do all we can to heal the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, care for those in need. The Good Samaritan did not pass by the wounded man on the side of the road. He stopped, gave aid, took the man to an inn and paid for his care from his own pocket, although the man was not known to him, nor of a tribe with whom he felt kinship. We are expected to do the same, wherever we can and by any means we can. Just because we cannot do this for every needy person on earth does not release us from attempting to assist all we can.
