In Los Angeles - it seems like people just don't get it. When 9/11 happened everyone was in shock people were concerned. Where are these people now? I have friends who seem like they could care less. People at work wonder why I am upset!
THIS IS NOT JUST A NEW ORLEANS PROBLEM! Or a poor person problem in the south. This is an American Crisis which is affecting our whole nation! 9/11 was horriffic and affected thousands. However, Katrina pales it in comparision and it is undeniably the worst catastrophe in recent history. It will affect all of us from from farm products, gas and basic needs! People need to get their heads out of their asses shut off their Xboxes and get out there help volunteer and give!

I just don't know what to say. The situation in New Orleans is just unbelievable. New Orleans is not like any city I have ever been to. It's Culture, music and food was unbeatable. I really hope that it can rebuild itself and come back stronger.

My wedding was set to be there next April. Now my fiance and I have to start from scratch. However, thats nothing compared to the thousands who have lost everything. Three days later we are still trying to get ahold of friends to see if they are ok. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people who are suffering and trying to get out of the city. I feel helpless.... even though I live in Los Angeles I think I will call red cross to see if they have any operations that they need help for in Los Angeles. Maybe they will be shipping meals and clothes out.

In the meantime here a few links to help pass info along to the rest of the world.
