Musings of the Chronologically Challenged™ Fourth Generation
Sunday, August 28, 2005
As night approaches here on the East Coast, our hearts go out to the Gulf Coast folks who are facing such an awful night. Here in North Carolina, we've been there and done that, but fortunately escaped a Cat 5. The possible scenarios now being discussed on television foretell of how much help those folks are going to need. Let's send our prayers in advance and prayers after the terrible hurricane has passed. Please also pray for efficient, well-organized after-storm programs to be ready to receive and distribute aid with tangible items that will be needed. If pick-up centers are open near you, send all you can. The first few days of aftermath will be hellish for the victims. Check your local community town halls, schools, and civic organizations for information on what you can do to offer assistance with immediate needs. Or call 1-800-HELPNOW for more information.

THE WISDOM OF THE NATIVE AMERICANS
"No person among us desires any other reward for performing a brave and worthy action, but the consciousness of having served his nation."
