Poem from a friend

My friend Dean Blehert of sent the following poem entitled "On The Importance Of Knowing How":
Beware of those who want to help
but don't know how,
for they will learn to hate
those they fail to help.

Plenty of truth in it -- you can feel the truth of it reverbrating when you view any groups that obviously started out trying to help and now hate those they failed to help, such as the psychiatric industry and the big drug companies, and the do-gooders in Congress throwing money at the war on drugs, trying not to leave any child behind. Educators are falling more and more into this trap as well.
