Those that cannot respect the common man or woman have no sense of nobility and honor.

To be from a place of privilege the noble cause is to want to give back to the community.

Yes yes, pray the God-fearing survive and prosper. But sometimes it's not enough to be God-fearing, just not enough to make it over that bar.
