I'm really upset. My father used to give regularly to a big name charity till he read about how the president of that charity was taking a one year vacation trip around the world. When the enemies of America killed so many innocent and good people with their Sept. 11 attack on us I thought we would rise above selfishness and all do the right thing. Now I see on TV and read in the news papers how little support the wives, husbands and children that are the survivors of those lost are getting.
I'm a poor man financially, but when I heard that there was a fund being set up for the survivors my family contributed all that we could. Just like many other Americans. Now it looks like the survivors may only get 10 or 20 percent of that amount that I sent. I don't think I'll ever contribute to another charity again. There's just no way to hold them accountable except in the world of public opinion.
Thanks for letting me make mine.
