God Bless and stay safe. I see the reports coming in of people stuck on the interstates and highways for hours and hours only to move several miles. It really makes me wonder when these evacuations are planned are they really thought out on a widescale ... as in 1.8 million people trying to leave all at once!
I will keep my prayers with all of these people and hope that everything turns out for the best! Just know that WE will rebuild ... as an American who believes in the power of GOD things will be better and I am prepared to adjust my budget to help rebuild these historical areas of our country. High Gas prices, taxes, donations WHATEVER it takes!
90_berlin_joe .... Please try and understand for the most part people live where they live based on economical reasons i.e. Jobs and cost of living and then following that is many different reasons i.e. Family ties, historical value and down right personal attraction. No one moves to these areas going "Hmm I think I'll move to N'Awlins or Galveston for the hopes of getting a Cat. 5 Hurricane to wash away everything I own and in return to get a $2000 debit card from the government!"
It saddens me to see the lack of consideration during a very trying time for your fellow Americans, actually it's rediculous and should have been kept to yourself.
Just my $.02cents
