Like most people who have been following the tragedy of Katrina, I am upset and angry. There is so much I want to say on this (I'm muttering scathing oratory to myself most of the day) but I'm too emotional and I doubt I could really express how I feel anyway. I am at times furious at the officials who's job it was to plan the safety and well-being of the citizens along the Gulf coast and the leadership vacuum in the days that followed. I am also at deeply saddened by the loss of life and suffering that has occurred and continues to occur (and I fear we haven't yet learned the worst of it).
Many of these survivors have lost more than I can imagine. I don't know what I can be do to help these people other than giving money to help with the disaster relief. If you haven't already, please just give something. It's easy and you'll be done in five minutes.
