Away from apathy - Marc Morial makes sense

I wonder if the apathy is in part the answer to avoiding facing the issues that are before us. I find much of the reality too painful. I already feel as though the bureaucracy has taken over and I am powerless to make a difference. Apathy is soothing in this case.
If you have not seen Marc Morial's speech you should listen. It will help you feel again. He asks us to face the "super catastrophe" of Katrina. He also asserts a Katrina Bill of Rights: Rights to reconnect, vote, return, rebuild, work. Listening to Marc, and the detailed and thoughtful approach he presents, pulled me back in. There is much to be done and much that can be done.
