Hurricane Katrina

a comment in a CNN article:

"You can do everything for other countries, but you can't do nothing for your own people," he added. "You can go overseas with the military, but you can't get them down here."

That's my feelings exactly. I know it doesn't work with the snap of a finger, but there really ought to be something more efficient/effective going on in New Orleans right now to help the THOUSANDS of victims who are trapped without food, water, shelter, transportation... it's ridiculous. My mother called and asked me if I had heard about this hurricane.. and of course I had... and she doesn't understand why our government/anyone seems to be doing more to help. heh. It's about as cold as you can go as far as accusing your gov. of something, but in my opinion this comes dam close to ethnic cleansing and it disgusts me. I feel like I really need to do something.. I don't know what I can do.. but I really feel strongly about this... I want to launch a campaign at school to assist with aid (which will be miniscule in relation to what they NEED)... but SOMETHING.. I don't know where I'll find the time.. but man.. I don't know.. this just breaks my heart.
