A work buddy sent this to me yesterday.  Can anyone verify?
 
 
The  Media (Accidently?)
Missed  this one!!!!

Please  read this:
The  troops oversees would like you to send it to everybody you know. 
 
 
Don't  know  whether  you  heard  about this  
but  Denzel  Washington  and  his family visited
the  troops at   Brook   Army Medical Center ,  in  
San  Antonio ,   Texas  (BAMC) the other day. This
is where soldiers who have been  evacuated from
Germany  come to be hospitalized in the United
States, especially burn  victims There are some
buildings there called  Fisher  Houses.  The Fisher
House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay,  
for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying  
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled  
most of the time.

While Denzel Washington was visiting  BAMC, they gave
him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He  asked how
much one of them would cost to build. He took his  check
book out and wrote a check for the full  amount right there
on the spot. The soldiers  overseas were amazed to hear
this story and want to get the  word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts  to hear it
 
 
 
 
 
 
The question is - why  do:

Britney spears
 
Paris Hilton

Tom  Cruise cid:44897D76-5887-465F-9F65-610DB3667E14and  

other Hollywood fluff  cid:18DF97AB-D7A0-4FE1-8491-8AF3CAC86153

make  front page news with their ridiculous

antics
and Denzel Washington's Charity      
doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro  section of
any newspaper except the Local newspaper in  
San  
Antonio

True...
Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance.

There are some who do not fear death... for they are more afraid of not really living

The story's true, but it isn't current.  I saw this in an email 2 or 3 years ago.
