Mary Landrieu on the Devastation of Hurricane Katrina

"Having toured Sri Lanka with Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist after the Indian Ocean tsunami in December, it saddens me to report that the devastation I've seen here at home is equal to that which I witnessed half a world away.

"Our nation came to the aid of the tsunami victims then, and to hurricane victims in Central America before. I am deeply moved to see us come together with the same love and fellowship today, as millions of Americans have rallied to support their brothers and sisters on the Gulf Coast."
-- Mary Landrieu, United States Senator from Louisiana, about the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005

via The Washington Post article "We'll Need Your Help"

We seem to always rush to the aid of other countries when they are in need but where are they when we need assistance? It's time that we look back over history and realize that all they do is take from us but never seem to return the favor.

I think it's better, instead of complaining about why other countries are or are not providing assistance to us, to consider what we can each individually do.

The most influential person is the one in the mirror.

"I am deeply moved to see us come together with the same love and fellowship today, as millions of Americans have rallied to support their brothers and sisters on the Gulf Coast." It's nice that she finally finds time to come together with love and fellowship. After infighting with State officials about how this would "make her look" maybe she has seen the error of her ways. Hopefully the people of LA will vote her out when they get the chance so she will have more time to devote to this new found love and fellowship.
