Just thought I would share that I grew up in a military family. My father served our country for 35 years. I was taught to get an education and then provide for myself. Not to expect others to do it for me. I was taught to assess situations and be prepared for many different outcomes. I was taught to take ownership of my actions, not to place blame on others for my shortcomings. With that said, my husband and I continuously give throughout the year to charitable organizations and ask of nothing in return. I am sorry but it is not my job to provide a jacket to every child in this county. Maybe you should reevaluate your view. This thread has gotten way off track, I am done.
