      The suffering of animals is fairly relevent as well, but since we
      have no real, put forth ability to reduce this long time standing of
      suffering people (at the hands of haves), we'd be hard pressed to
      reduce the suffering scenerio of animals as well. This presentation
      just happened to be from a supposed 12 year old (I have an eleven
      year old that has done some similar presentations quite on his own.)

      *v* That's a good point, Jason. It's actually very typical
      of that age group as their creative efforts are often
      directed to emotional areas of life. The concrete is being
      expanded to the abstract and the area of compassion for
      others is being explored.

      Presentation from adults describe similar situations and a need for
      help in those areas. If all this is so well known and typical, then
      the answer should be pretty typical and well known as well.
      Apparently belaboring intent is the answer? HaHa.
