Hurricane Katrina One Year Later

Count your many blessings, name them one by one.
Count your many blessings, see what God has done....

A song we used to sing in Sunday School, and one I should chant as a mantra every day. The updates on the damage to Louisiana and Mississippi one year later are grim to say the least. People still with lives shattered, waiting for the Federal Government to deliver on their promises. Broken houses still in pieces on every street. The mold must be unbelievable, and from that the illness.

It makes me crazy that we are fighting in Iraq at huge expense to the tax payers, a place we aren't even wanted, when that money could be used to help victims of Katrina get back on their feet. How is it that camera crews are not capturing the success the EPA is reporting? It's time for a government overhaul. From the top down. Woosh, everybodies new. Illogical? Yes. At this point, I don't care. I want leaders that are honorable.
