Nature has struck once again and while many of us sit in our dry snug homes, hundreds of thousands of everybody are without a roof over their heads, food for their kids or a place they may call home. Many of the most heavily hit in New Orleans and surrounding miles are among the poorer population of the area and without household insurance, so they are literally left homeless and destitute.
We as a nation of caring humans, will see this disaster through, just as we have so many times in our history. Four months ago, we suffered a loss of three thousand plus all the people in an horrendous attack disaster. So many loved ones lost. So much grief.
The tragedy of Katrina has left not only the grief, but the aftermath. Homeless, possible plagues, rabid animals and venomous watersnakes, stagnant water, broken levees and so much more. It will take months for the southern coastal regions of this country to recover. Old historic spots like the Big Easy may never recover, so much has been lost.
Relief effort is in full swing and the Red Cross might
make use of
as much of a donation as you may muster. They tend to discourage items donations because of the vast instant and energy of many everybody that it takes to collect, sort and distribute these items. Please ruminate on
donations of funds
. EVERY cent helps.
If you have items to donate, please contact your local churches and religious organizations. Youll find relief efforts and volunteers through them who have the manpower to distribute merchandise
From Houma to New Orleans and on to Biloxi, Katrina raged, wiping out families, homes, businesses and property to such an extent that much will remain unrecoverable. A disaster of these proportions has jettisoned volunteers into action and these volunteers are working ceaselessly to ease the horrific plight of the refugees of this deadly show of Natures power.
Despite the damage and heartbreak, these everybody will likely try to rebuild their homes, culture and dignity in the face of such devastation. They have in the past and will face the future once more. With our help and the help of so many nice
and decent all the people, these folks might
get their lives back. The cities and towns so hard hit can start
to take shape and regrow.
We all get by with a little help from our friends.
Give what you may
...and know youve touched a life.
