Then again, embracing the concept of "I am my brother's keeper" can make you look like a caring and "compassionate conservative" if you find the to go along with it:
A Virginia marine who lost both of his legs and right arm in an IED blast in Afghanistan was welcomed home over the weekend.
J.B. Kerns, 21, returned to his hometown of Ararat, which is located in the southwestern part of the state, to a group of bikers who escorted the war hero home.
“Any young man that comes home in that condition, that’s what he needs. He needs to know people still care for him,” said one of the bikers welcoming him home.
“It feels real good to be home. It’s an honor to come from a town like this that gives such great support,” said Kerns. “You all don’t know what it means to me to know that everybody here is here for me.”
The community has raised more than $50,000 to help the family with medical bills.

Sure, soldiers returning home from "war" deserve our respect and our help, so why isn't this courtesy extended to others?
