Vain Generosity

Dave Hare reflects on a tragic scenario. &#8220The truth is, providing to the poor is practically generally impractical. Attempt as you may well, you can’t manage other people, you can not make them use the revenue the way that you want them to. You can not make the medicine function, or the surgery to take, and even when it does, you can not make folks remain alive.
