THE PEOPLE SPEAK – Russian orphans deserve our help

We Americans like President Putin of Russia a lot and we want him to like us. If one or a few of Americans and half a million politicians said something he did not like, he should just forget about it.

America and the rest of civilization will always be indebted to the Russian people. If not for them, the world would be speaking “nazi” now. For every American who died in combat during that heartbreaking conflict called WW II, 40 Russians died.

As for the issue of the beautiful 750,000 orphans in Russia, each of them deserve a mother and a father to love and honor, who will also love and honor them. All of those orphans are descendants of some of the bravest and most enduring people who ever lived. Their potential for the future is unlimited.

I can visualize angels: White, Black, Hispanic, Indian, Asian, Middle Eastern, and multi-racial and their prayers. “May every adult be given the wisdom and ability to ensure that every child grows up with a healthy mind and body and joyful heart, educated and prepared for life.
