New Orleans

I just saw on the news that many New Orleans Police officers have walked off the job and two have committed suicide. Shoot outs over interstate bridges and crime running rampant. British Students made it back home from the superdome. They said the situation was horrifying. My heart breaks for all of these. Now we're on to the finger pointing. I know there are things to fix and words to hand out, but I don't see how this is helping to do anything but slow down the process and change the focus of view off of the people who need the most help. Around 6000 victims are coming to Columbia, SC over the next several weeks. Our church is trying to help. If local Red Cross chapters are helping in your area, considerhelping them. If not, please consider giving to the relief.
