Hurricane Update
edit_button


It seems to have been a little while since Hurricane Rita and Katrina devoured parts of the United States. But, the devestation is still there. With Christmas just around the corner, please say a prayer for those people that may not have a home this year. Let us all unite with the true poverty of Christ.

I received this news in an email:

1. Of the 84 elementary schools in New Orleans, only 16 are open now-and 43 have no projected re-opening date, stranding 25,000 students.

2. Twenty-three New Orleans parishes have been destroyed.

Firstly let me wish you and your famil a Merry Christmas.

It does seem strange that many have made rebuilding the casino's a priority.
I also get the feeling that maybe some of the 'power brokers' dont want certain residents to return to their home state that have been badly affected by Katrina.

Just a few thoughts on the issue...

Peace of Christ to you Moneybags.
