Thank-you for your service in Iraq, and I really do mean that. I am also glad to see someone whose life is dedicated to making real changes in the real world. I've never volunteered at an animal shelter or a nursing home. Just soup kitchens and homeless shelters. Now that you've mentioned it though, there is a nursing home across the street from me. Once I get over this sinus infection I'll knock on the door and see if they accept volunteers. Thanks for the inspiration!
