Have we FORGOTTEN???

Last nite and today, the TV shows are filled with Hurricane Katrina videos, remberances and so forth. I can say that the more I watch the MADDER I GET! Its been a year...and what have we accomplished? Really? These people still do not have homes, nor jobs, money has been stolen by people who no one checked on to see if they REALLY lived in the places hit......
neighborhoods still show the houses, just as they were a year ago..bodies are still being found...garbage is still strewn all over the streets.
Where is the US Government? Where is the help one year later? People say we have forgotten the people of Louisana, New Orleans..and the other Gulf States that were hit soo hard by these storms, and yet, another hurricane season is upon us...and we are still where we were a year ago? President Bush..they showed him touring once again...and he says "we should be PROUD" of how far the Gulf region has come...EXCUSE ME????? Is he still wearing those rose colored glasses???? Is he just not seeing, or DOESN'T WANNA SEE...WE ARE ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS...what happened here did NOT happen in a Third World Country...it happened here in the UNITED STATES...Color should not have a play in this...These people did not ask to lose thier family members, their livilhoods, their homes, and yet...nothing is being done?

This I can not accept...WE ARE THE UNITED STATES...are we not proud? of our people in the STATES? no matter what the color, race, they need our help...and will continue to need our help in rebuilding their schools, neighborhoods, churches, and homes.
people need to give of their time, money, clothing prayers for these people. Anything will help!

I ask....

DO NOT FORGET these people, and what they have gone thru...Their zest for life, and hope should teach US ALL A GOOD LESSON~! That we need to learn from them
