KATRINA,OUR COUNTRY, OUR DUTY!
Ten years ago I was doing what most of us do. Watching the Katrina hell on the t.v. play out. When they showed Americans, Human Beings, flowing dead in the streets and suffering in that dome. I heard a former president speak to me from the dead. “Ask not what your Country can do for U, but what U can do for your Country”. Will, for me it’s scary not to respond to that enter call. I knew what I had to do. So I tracked down the local Red Cross and begged them to let me help. Of course, they did. Off To a Red Cross relief station in Texas. Twelve of us worker, six hundred pityful souls. I won’t both U with the sorrowful things I saw and these people told me, but, I will the beauty. Eleven angels I meet there. Humble, kind, hard working. Well, every time I looked at them I had to blink because I am sure I saw a glow around them. I was approaching 60 yet I grew up those weeks in spirit. I tell you this today because WE, watched, and said O That’s so terrible, but we just can’t and but should, try pushing our-selves away from our desks, the steering wheel, the table, the TV. Be that American that does what our late president said. Do what you know U can for our Country when the next bad happens. It will be the experience of your life.
Thank U for letting me share this great event in my life. Renee
