Unlike what I've been reading in blogland today, I'm seeing real live care around where I live. I've been hearing real live stories about people helping people all over the south. Just as in 9-11, we were unprepared. We will always be unprepared for huge catastrophies. Why? Because we think things will always be the same. We CANNOT predict the future. I don't understand all this blame I'm reading in the blogs.
I've seen SO many people around me LEAVE--federal employees from the USAF and the Border Patrol who are sending boats and volunteering their time to help. Everyone around my town is doing something to help and I've been sent emails from people I know who are SOOOO grateful for the help and support.
People will see red if they want. People will see hope if they want.
I'm fervently praying for us all.
