    If my tears could quench their thirst,
    I wouldn’t feel so helpless
    in soothing their misery,
    flood survivors with no water to drink,
    in hot-sweaty, suffocating heat,
    gathered in herds, waiting
    with no food to eat,
    For help from a system
    that has already betrayed them.
    Floating corpses in backwater bilge,
    mute victims testify of budget cuts into the levee
    that pay for foreign war.
    Had God sent the winds
    to remind us of our sins
    to atone through pain,
    because we have separated too far from him,
    and we must return to humility once more?

    Who are you talking to Dave G?
    Expecting the government to do their part does not negate our responsibility as fellow human beings.
    We are our brother’s keeper.

    It may still be worthy of note that our White House has allocated several more billions of our tax dollars to their insider corporations (HB – KBR – etc) on the pretext that they will restore the cities. They will, however, simply pocket most of those dollars. The White House will prevail upon churches and caring people to do what needs to be done. I don’t suppose this is something we are supposed to be talking about here; not all of us, not those here only to defend the most harmfull Administration ever. Some will mention such facts still, however, even if it is yet one more thing our corrupt government does not want us to talk about. Yes, I understand that some cannot deal with this as their purpose is only to try to protect these criminals. America is waking up to all this though despite all eforts at deceiving us. The truth may yet prevail despite all your eforts to supress it.

    This was an interesting and informative show as well as a bit disheartening.
    We need the reminder that these people are still in great need of support and assistance but also need to know that there are good people out there who are still faithful in their efforts to help!
    Samaritan’s Purse is one such organization!
    See this link… and others on some of the practical ways they are helping.
    Franklin Graham, President of Samaritan’s Purse said that Samaritan’s Purse is committed to helping the region rebuild in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Volunteer crews equipped by our Disaster Response Units will be in the storm-ravaged area for months to come, making emergency repairs that help families stay in or return to their houses.
    “I expect that Samaritan’s Purse will be here for another year, maybe longer,” he said.
    As your guest Ms Brown pointed out – it is the small churches in the area who have come to the rescue and it is churches like this that Samaritan’s Purse works with!
