A warrior such as Dr. Ben should not be suffering from anything that involve materialism. A person's health issues may be out of human control. But for him to be going without the basics, is a disgrace to any of us who learned and benefited under Dr. Ben.
If the Egyptologist Dr. Hawaas fell ill, and needed assistance, the white/Arabic world would not see him suffer and want for nothing. Yet the very best of ours has to live like that?!?!?!?!?
Dr. John Henrik clarke complained of the same thing, when he allowed his health to be run down all for a people who did not appreciate his work.
It's truly sad. One day hopefully when I graduate from school, I will start a fund that is for our retired scholars.
