Subject: [Leica] kittens, landmines, children, and where you spend your money

i'm sure from time to time we all experience things that move us emotionally 
and personaly -- this happened to me in romania when i met some of the kids 
living in the sewers there. the lug ralled and, if i remember correctly, we 
raised four thousand dollars to try and help. i'm also a sucker for a kitten 
in need. 

as artists and storytellers we -- everyone here -- has the power and maybe 
even the obligation to try and make the world a better place. whether $2,000 
is better spent on landmine victims i'll leave for people to decide on their 
own. but i hope that everybody here will, from time to time, try and help 
something out -- children, kittens, whatever -- with your images, with your 
time, with your dedication and make the world a little better for your 
presence on it each day.
