What I Have Seen Since Katrina:
The poor and the wealthy hurt by the storm, Black, white, Hispanic,
oriental and Indian all hurt by the storm.
Christian people giving, giving, giving.
Churches going all out to minister in Jesus’ name Neighbors going door to
door helping one another Thugs and hoodlums going door to door looking
for someone vulnerable.
Ice and water being fought over as police tried to keep the peace.
People coming up from New Orleans taking over empty houses because
shelters are full.
Out of town volunteers coming with food and staying for now a week still
The Churches all over this part of the country doing what Christians do
in a crisis.
Fema doing a wonderful job in getting help to us The red Cross doing a
great job in the shelters.
The Salvation Army doing a great job in the community.
Four Hundred crewman from everywhere bring back the power to our homes,
churches and businesses.
Lines at service stations a block to a mile long.
National Guardsman patrolling the streets of Mccomb along with Kentucky
policemen protecting us from the hoodlums and thugs of McComb, Pike
and New Orleans (the most dangerous city in the world before Katrina).
Drug dealers working outside shelters.
Doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel working tirelessly, even
sleeping in the hospital to do the job God called them to do.
WHAT I HAVE NOT SEEN:
The ACLU setting up a feeding line. People for the American Way helping
the shelters The NAACP doing any work whatsoever The American Atheist
organization serving meals in the shelters. Jesse Jackson directing
at the gas stations
I could go on but you get my message. Its the Christian people with love
and compassion who do the work. The gripers in Congress should come on
and get in line to pass the water and the ice.
Boy I feel better now.
