Message:      One other perspective...

Let's not get caught up in this media frenzy and the blame game, let's just help these folks out. We may not be able to do anything about the past but we can surely do something about the "right now".

We have friends with 17 relatives staying with them...there are many household in this area in the same situation...In Texas, free food stamps for 2 months, just show your Louisiana driver's license, no questions asked. Our volunteer firestation is collecting and handing out food 24 hours a day. Churches housing displaced people. Children from Louisiana already temporarily enrolled in Texas schools.

This is happening all over Houston, Beaumont, Lake Charles, Lafayette, Baton Rouge and all the smaller towns in-between. Not to mention all the towns in Mississippi, Alambama and Georgia pitching in.

"THIS"...is America.
