    1. I’m in San Leandro, CA. I am sure that if we haven’t met, we will eventually – I’m a member of the CCAR and a graduate of HUC/LA.

      Thank you for the way you cut through the various liberal excuses for failure to give to those in need. I confess that I had allowed myself to become paralyzed by them, and a kick in the pants was in order. Thank you for delivering such a kick gently and with the appropriate texts!
