Here is an article from Slate.com by Blake Bailey. He and his family are currently in Gainesville, Florida as Katrina refugees.
Here are some things I saw in this article:
1. It is apalling that the Presbyterian Church (who should be representing God) is offering a house in such poor condition. And, that they are not attempting to help the Katrina victims by forgoing the rent. Maybe they can't do that financially, but at least they could do something.
2. The man from California who offered to pay their rent for a year and build them a house. How amazing is that?! He said it was to help restore Blake's faith in humanity and God. He is attempting to do more than just do social good, he is attempting to demonstrate a godly lifestyle.
3. Where is our government? They were late getting to New Orleans, and they are now taking their time helping people get back on their feet. I knew John Kerry wasn't the right person for the job, and now I know George Bush wasn't either. I know it is not completely his fault, but it seems that we did more, faster for tsunami. Do they have a party of "the lesser of two evils"?
