Politics: Pam Finlayson's story of the compassion of the Romney's

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

A very moving testimony of Mr. Romney's compassion.

I didn't watch all the coverage of the convention so I didn't know about this until late today.  As a bit of a political news hound, I've check around the various news web pages to see clips and read analysis of the event.  I only came across this touching story when I looked in Foxnews.com.

Perhaps video of this speech and associated backstory can be found at somewhere on cnn.com, msnbc.com, abcnews.com or cbsnews.com but I guess it wouldn't surprise me if they weren't highlighting it because it puts Mr. Romney in a positive light.

John Adams and John Quincy Adams
George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Non-profit of the month: August 2012 - World Vision

There are small non-profits with a local area it works in.  There are big ones with a wider reach.

One of the big ones that has been around a long time (since 1950) doing good work that I've supported over the years is World Vision.
