Shaynoos: Katrina, Katrina
Posted on Friday 2 September 2005
It's 1:30am, and I can't sleep for the 3rd night in a row. I am sick with grief for the suffering of people in the southern US who have been killed, injured or made homeless by the hurricane. Why can't more be done to help these people? The stories on the wire are more desperate and sad with each passing hour. Come on, world, wake up and help!
A few weeks ago, we had a series of explosions in London that would barely reach the first bar on the scale of destruction we would need to measure what has befallen those in the path of hurricane Katrina. Yet we received a massive outpouring of love, concern and offers of help almost instantantly. I dare not lose hope that aid will be given to all those in need. Do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the immensity of this devastation. Please, if you can reach out to these people, please help, in whatever way you can. Sometimes a prayer is all we have, sometimes our time, room in our home, our money. What would you trade not to be in their shoes? For the love of humanity, help them. Whatever you have to give, give it now!
