The Aftermath of New Orleans

We Must Support One Another


For most of us out in Jland the disaster in New Orleans has been very horrible indeed.We have not been able to understand what has happened and there fore we don't know what has been going wrong. Today I discovered two things: 1. the Red Cross was told that 30,000 people would be coming to the arena and that is what they brought supplies and water for. Instead, 50,000 people showed up.


2. We didn't have enough National Guard people at all to help us. As I am writing this, the Louisianna National Guard has been called back from Iraq to New Orleans. This explains alot of terrible suffering that we have seen take place...


I want to tell you people from Louisianna and Mississippi that we have been carrying you in our hearts. We have been sending you positive thoughts and we will continue to do so. We are attempting to send you money and things. Let's all continue to care about each other. Let's encourage each other that we are tough enough to survive this. you can tell your grandchildren that you got through this tight squeeze okay and they will be so proud of you.

More people did seem to get some help today, atleast they were given food and water, which is better than what they have had in the past 4 days. There is still so much more that needs to be done. I just pray today was the beginning of getting these people the help they desperately need. I appreicate your concern and e-mail.

It was good that all across America people were opening up their homes for the displaced people of New Orleans. I've heard some negative stories since then, but still, for the most part, it was a good thing. Certainly, they continue to need assistance. This isn't going away within a year.
