Republican Americans. Democratic Americans. Independent Americans. Please take a couple of minutes and look at these photos from the recent RAM (Remote Area Medical) session here in my state of Virginia, where hundreds of people queue up all night to get the only medical care they get all year, because it's free and they can't afford it otherwise. Please leave a comment on how this makes you feel when you see it.
Please consider that I have FB friends in Iceland, France, Canada, New Zealand, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, England, and Bolivia that are seeing these photos and are making impressions about America and how our country treats poor people. Leave your thoughts about that, too, if you are so moved.
