To be able to say ‘Been there, done that’, means way more coming from a poor person than it does to the *Marcus Van Buelenheimer III’s* of the northern states.

Look at all the dough churches donated to Katrina or to the Pakistani disaster, or to Tsunami relief. Look at what the churches do in the inner cities.
