I want to clarify that this is not a political message that bashes one side while embracing another. This is about asking fellow citizens to please take action on behalf of those who at this point cannot.
I don't often find myself watching Oprah. Today I did and I have to say I am OUTRAGED by what I have seen of her report about the continuing impact of Katrina in Mississippi and Lousiana.
Oprah was joined by Anderson Cooper and a young Asian-American lady who is a reporter that I am not familiar with.
During the show they shared information on FEMA trailers that are sitting in fields of mud while families within a couple of miles of these trailers are living in what looks to be military issue tents surrounded again by mud, gnats and other bugs...of course many of these folks are going to HAVE to leave the tents in the middle of March.
Folks, this is an outrage!
GOP/DNC I could not care less, our government needs to do what needs to be done to help these people...the trailers in storage in the field of mud are already paid for and sitting there EMPTY..why are we not getting these to people?
I am asking you to join me in contacting your Senators and Congressional Representatives to petition on behlaf of our fellow Ameircans who are forced to live in these conditions (through no fault or cause of their own) with no hope of any change anytime soon...PLEASE!!! Out of compassion out of humanity...out of what is right and just for these people, PLEASE contact your Senators and Congressional Representatives and ask them to take whatever means necessary to get the tools and resources available to these folks to provide them relief.
Additionally, here are two names I received to contact at FEMA from my Senators office. These folks are people who can help move these trailers from the storage lots to the folks who need them.
