An eyewitness of Hurricane Katrina in McComb briefly tells what he has seen… but don’t miss the part about what he has NOT seen!
WHAT I HAVE SEEN
The poor and the wealthy hurt by the storm
Black, white, Hispanic, oriental and Indian all hurt by the storm.
Christian people giving, giving, giving.
Churches going all out to minister in Jesus' name
Neighbors going door to door helping one another
Thugs and hoodlums going door to door looking for someone vulnerable.
Ice and water being fought over as police tried to keep the peace.
People coming up from New Orleans taking over empty houses because
shelters are full.
Out of town volunteers coming with food and staying for now a week still serving it.
The Churches all over this part of the country doing what Christians do in a crisis.
FEMA doing a wonderful job in getting help to us
The Red Cross doing a great job in the shelters.
The Salvation Army doing a great job in the community.
Four Hundred crewman from everywhere bringing power back to our homes, churches and businesses.
Lines at service stations a block to a mile long.
National Guardsman patrolling the streets of Mccomb along with Kentucky policemen protecting us from the hoodlums and thugs of McComb, Pike County and New Orleans (the most dangerous city in the world before Katrina.)
Drug dealers working outside shelters.
Doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel working tirelessly, even sleeping at the hospital to do the job that God called them to do.
WHAT I HAVE NOT SEEN
The ACLU setting up a feeding line.
People for the American Way helping in the shelters
The NAACP doing any work whatsoever
The American Atheist organization serving meals in the shelters.
Jesse Jackson directing traffic at the gas stations.
Operation Push doing anything at all.
Move ON Org doing anything except yelling how badly people are treated.
I could go on, but you get my message. Its the Christian people with love and compassion who do the work. The gripers in Congress should come on down and get in line to pass the water and the ice.
Are you listening Hillary, Chuck, Teddy, Dickie Durbin, Osama and all the sorry complaining loafers we call Senators and Congressmen. They don't have a clue as to what this life is all about here on the gulf coast.
Boy I feel better now.
