CARRELL: Why shouldn’t we help our neighbors?

I read some negative comments following the article (TNT, 3-25) about friends raising money to offset some of state Sen. Mike Carrell’s medical expenses. It’s sad that neighbors can’t help neighbors without someone vilifying us. Isn’t that what we should be about?

I suppose some would say it is better that we sit on our hands and demand that others take care of our responsibility. Maybe if I demand that you take someone else’s property to give to me in my need I would somehow be a more worthy person. DeTocqueville would not believe what he would see in today’s America.
