My cousin's husband has a daughter who is in Pakistan with an aid group teaching the Pakistani women something or other. Even though she lives in a compound with others and has a guard when they go out of the compound, I would still think it is not completely safe.

Stupid little moths flittering too close to all the world's violent flames. I'd exempt journalists such criticism, though I've met a few of them who harbored death wishes unrealized, for now, but missionaries, NGO's, and other do-gooders playing Russian roulette on the planet's violent landscapes...well, if they get their heads chopped off they'll get no sympathy from me. Stupid is as stupid does.

These bleeding hearts in the OP had to travel halfway around the world to hand out clothing to poor people? They're 3.5 million homeless living in tents right here in America! They need clothes too.
