Ya know, I Want to be angry. I Want to rant and shake my head. I want to cry for everyone involved, who've lost loved ones and homes.
Reading all the posts, the stories, the news. I'm amazed but not surprised that such a situation could actually happen in the ol' USofA. All I'm gonna say is, what did we expect?
I'm past berating Bush.
It's but another in a long line of failures.
And another prime example of why I don't put Faith in men, or their words.
What Does sadden me is the immediate reaction to this disaster. You'd think that in the face of such devastation, everyone would bond together, pulling to make things better. No, there's got to be looting, rape and armed gangs terrorizing the streets. And you want to tell me the world's getting better?
I wonder what one of the "lesser" countries of the world that we're trying to teach "how to live right" would have done in a similar situation?
More on a personal level, I know it can't be easy not having electricity and water for a week, and my heart goes out to everyone I know in Florida. Super praying and hoping that you guys are making it alright.
We'll be helping out with the relief effort here in San Antonio. Apparently something like 25,000 refugees are being sent over so we're committing our time and manpower to do all we can to help out.
But what a shame.
