Hurricane Katrina

Hopefully I don't offend anyone with my post, but I need to vent on my feelings!

I understand that the Hurricane is devastating, believe my I have been very emotional over it. To think of all the people that lost everything and the kids who are sitting in dirty diapers just breaks my heart. I often post on a message board called Babycenter and everyone on there is just blasting President Bush and gas prices. I understand how expensive gas is and how hard it is going to be for us but at least we have cars to put gas in. At least we have food, shelter, clothes, and know where our family is. All of these people are complaining about gas prices but they fail to think of the people that are left homeless and who barely have food. If high gas prices is the worst thing in my life then I am pretty lucky.

Also, everyone is blasting the President. I would just love for those people to be President for a day and see what they do. What did they want him to do, stand in front of the hurricane and push it away. He may have made mistakes in his reaction the storm but he is trying to help and it is a big disaster he will get us through it.

I feel people just need to take a moment to think of all they have and what the people in the path of the hurricane don't have. Everytime Emma gets to do something, like take a bath, I tell her how lucky she is because there are kids out there her age that don't get baths, food, diaper changes, or toys. We are very lucky to have what we do and I want to help the victims of this horrible disaster anyway I can.

If you were thinking of getting me a birthday present please just put the money towards a donation to the hurricane relief. They need stuff more than I do, I have all I need in my family and friends.

George Bush doesn't care about black people.
