It's probably a good idea sometime today to reflect on what has happened in the southeastern United States and to remind ourselves that we are a great people in a country with an amazing capacity to deal with these kinds of problems. As Americans, we will be asked to do our part to deal with these unusual circumstances, and as one nation I am confident we will. Those Americans who live in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Southwestern Florida should today take comfort that, as your fellow country men, we will do our very best to rebuild and restore those areas which have been so devastated.

There is a better day coming. Today, for so many people, that fact may be hard to accept, but it is true. If you are in the areas affected by this natural disaster, you are not alone. Your family, the American family, stands with you. If you are not located in those areas, the American Red Cross could probably use a few bucks (while not a huge fan of the Red Cross, they are probably the most effective private organization at least in the early days of this type of natural disaster). If you have a moment and are qualified, give blood. It costs nothing and it will make you feel pretty good. Finally, don't be afraid to remind your representatives that it's okay to ask us to make some sacrifices to aid our fellow Americans. America is a nation with broad shoulders and a strong back, for us any burden, when shared, is a light one.

I used the Salvation Army for my donation. They do great work also and they already have teams in the area.



Cheers,

Very well spoken...and..who NEEDS other countries...we've stood alone before...we will again, and we will reach out and help one another now...because THAT is what Americans DO and that is what makes us different AND special among the countries of the world!

We should be Americans Everyday. It's unfortunate that a peril event has to bring this realization.

you might also remind them that--since the war in iraq is projected to reach 204.6 billion dollars by end of fiscal year 2005 (not counting the cost in blood)--we can certainly appropriate whatever's necessary to help our fellow countrymen in the wake of this devastating storm. had katrina been the code name for an al qaeda attack, rather than mother nature demonstrating her power, every congressman and senator would be falling all over themselves vote for whatever it takes to mount an appropriate response. and in this case, an appropriate response would be everything and anything it takes to help these american victims.

yeah, i'm using this tragedy to make political commentary. but wait and see how some of our elected officials use it as such... not to mention those who will abuse the system and unfairly profit from this catastrophy. maybe pat robertson and jerry falwell will find someone or some group to lay blame on--you know, katrina was God's righteousness going after some sinner or group of sinners--and call for deathsquads to be dispatched.

sorry if any of this sounds unempathetic. i'm not unempathetic at all. i just can't stand hypocrisy and screwed-up priorities and both of those things seem to be on-going hallmarks of our current government.

They also run the largest casino in my mom's home town.
Not that I'm against that.
I'm just against in conjunction with the infernal begging they do at Christmas.
They just hit a nerve with me, sorry.

I do however applaud your efforts to help.

what baffles me is how a city can be below sea level and relying on levies to hold the water out. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

they should rename new orleans to atlantis.

one could easiley argue that i live in earthquake country. i don't have my house stradaling the san andreas though.

mankind's arrogance is baffling much of the time.

Hmmm.... I wonder if France, or Germany,... or China,...or any Islamic nation will send us a buck to help us out now..

What am I thinking...never mind.. Those cheap bastards,...all they know how to do is bitch about us....even after we have been so selfless in our aid to other nations in times of need.. They know how to say "Thank you United States" but they also know how to say "[censored] You Americans".

BTW,... gas is at 3 bucks a gallon,.... I heard some guy at the gas station mention that by the end of the week, we might be paying 4 bucks a gallon..

Oh well... let the second great depression begin.
