I went to our local blood center to give blood today. I found out that all of the blood that we give here stays here, so that isn't going to help victims of Katrina.
We gave change at the local mall. It probably wasn't $3.00 all together, but it was all the change that we had. I would like to have given more, but bills are heavy this week, so right this minute I'm not able to.
We took cans of food to a canned good drive at my husband's job, then I heard on TV that they don't need food, just money.
I really want to help these people, but I feel pretty much useless at this point. The media has turned it all political, and into a racial thing, and I'm thinking, "Stop putting a spin on it and report the facts." We're all intelligent enough to have our own thoughts and opinions on the facts. It would be nice if we could get them. I don't care about anyone's opinion, I just want to see these people get the help that they so desperately need.
So, now I'm feeling down, because I feel useless, and wish that I could do more. So I am going to pray for each and every person there. Please, pray with me.
