Social Workers Rock!

Our local free weekly poses a question to passerbys once a week. This week's question was:

Should we stay the course in Iraq?
After two "yes" statements from two poor souls headed for basic training, I read this:
No. We should have pulled out long ago. I don't agree with the war. I don't think we should have gone in the first place. We're just wasting money that could be spent on social services.
She was then asked by the reporter what kind of work she did.
I'm a social worker.
My heart gleamed with pride. I would have said it the exact same way.
I too am a social worker, and am very proud to say it.
