No one is obligated to help ANYBODY, but it's the kind thing to do, to help someone out of the goodness of your heart. I don't believe that you should write their story for them, but if somebody asks for help, then by god, you should help them! It surprise me how many un-giving people there are here. Why must we be like? Why can't we spend our time giving? What better things are there to possibly do then giving to others? I certainly can't think of any.
