I don’t feel like I can add much to the discussion of the New Orleans disaster. I’m sadden by the tremendous loss of life, by the conditions the survivors had to endure at the Superdome and the convention center, and sickened by the looting, killing, accusations of racism, and opportunism of all kinds.
It’s pretty obvious that all levels of government failed to respond fast enough to the aftermath of the hurricane, but I don’t feel now is the time to cast blame. There will be plenty of time for that in the coming months and years. Now is the time for action. Keep praying for the victims and their families and consider donating if you haven’t already.
