As you may have realized there are many things happening in this country that really make me very angry but when I woke up I decided that there are some thing that make me very happy as a Libertarian and American to see.
Without going into the governments failed response to Katrina I would like to thank the private groups that are working to help the areas hit by Katrina. There are so many examples of people traveling from all over the country to help the victims of this tragedy and I would love to give all of them but here are a few examples that I have time to give.
“HOUSTON, Texas (AP) — About 2,000 Muslim volunteers helped victims of Hurricane Katrina at the city’s downtown convention center Sunday, the fourth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.”
I may not agree with Al Gore’s politics but it deserves to be told what he did to help victims of Katrina.
“KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Al Gore helped airlift some 270 Katrina evacuees on two private charters from New Orleans earlier this week.”
“Gore was acting at the urging of a doctor who saved the life of the former vice president’s son. Doctor David Kline operated on Gore’s son, Albert, after a life-threatening auto accident in 1989. He was trying to get in touch with Gore. Kline was stranded with patients at Charity Hospital in New Orleans.”
I would also like to say thanks to all the volunteers who are helping with this tragedy, I only had time to give two examples but I would like to say thank you to everyone helping.
