Where is America

You know what's sad about this whole Katrina situation is the response of the general public. I mean it’s as if Americans have given up, save those who are directly affected and those who are in closer proximity etc. I talk to people about it all the time and I can't find anyone who really has a genuine concern or intention to make it better. It’s like all people want to do is have candle lit vigils, and talk about doing something. At some point awareness and concern are pointless. I feel sometimes the only way people (who don’t really feel connected to the struggle which is Katrina) will begin to help is if the opportunities are brought to their doorsteps for them to either accept or reject. Expecting people who are not connected to Katrina emotionally (or more), to take any sort of initiative in bettering the situation is a little bit much.


  • I was talking with someone recently who attended yet another march in Baton Rogue on behalf of evacuees. Apparently, even local evacuees themselves are getting tired of all the talk or concern without solutions.
