Time heals all wounds

In the past couple of weeks,what has haunted me the Most during this time, has been hearing of the Killing and molestation at gun point, of others, including children, by a few really terrible men - while others, men, women, and children, were forced to witness these actions (while they were crowded into the Dome during the hurricane) . What an unforgetable nightmare that must have been to witness...

I am skeptical of many organizations and places to donate money, but I have been active with 700women dot com through amnestyusa dot org
Some times I can send money, and usually I click on a link that sends my name along with others to send letters of support or add my name to a petition. I believe these people are doing many good things for others, so I thought I would pass this along, just In case you might also be interested.

I have been involved (for a couple of years) in these organizations in hopes that this will help a good cause and to bring bad people to justice. I don't have a lot of money or time to donate, but I feel this is something I can do that will be of help - to support really good causes.

Also in this time I have been quite distraught by the images of all of the animals that have been displaced by the hurricane. So it is helping me to feel better by giving to the humane society and to the Noah's Wish website. Both of these organizations are hekping to take care of the animals and their sites have some very good information, especially Noah’s wish. This has some really good information about their organization and lists of things to have in case of emergency, and an amazing list of links to many other web sites that will provide you with helpful information about being prepared for disasters. We can learn from others mistakes ‒ now.
I wish I could do more to help... If I were independantly wealthy, I would join Noah's wish or another place like it, so I could be of help to the animals...

Thanks unlistedone That is really sweet of you to say!

I don't know what it is about this last tornado. I have heard of many tornadoes and floods, and other natural disasters before, I have donated before... but this is just so terrible, what these people are having to go through. The only way they are going to make it is if we all do what we can. The only part about this that is Good, is when you see others giving and helping others.......
I do get to give blood later, they are setting it up at work, so we can all do it easily!
I sure wish I could do more
