Lowest of low

I cannot, nor will I, get political. But I just have to say that I cannot understand the depths people have sunk to in New Orleans. Snipers outside hospitals, rapes, not giving children water, leaving old people to die on overpasses. Blame it on whomever you would like but how can we fix it? How do we give the water to the babies and the old people? Those reporters better start looking more dehydrated. I can't do stand to watch it anymore.

I wanted to reach through my tv screen and smack them when they said "people are dying in front of us"...and they did NOTHING??? Hello - most of them have been trained in first aid - it's required - to run those big satellite trucks. Did anyone else notice most of the reporters looked refreshed, and like perhaps they had eaten something? Just wondering.

I know--it's horrific to watch. And to watch it on television, so far away, makes a person feel even more helpless. Heartbreaking. This whole Katrina thing is going to be difficult to process for so many Americans because it is blameless in and of itself. We've been programmed to want to blame something. We always need a nemesis. It's the weather. There's no enemy there--no terrorists, nothing. No one to point fingers at. It just is. Unfortunately, it's going to get so much worse before it gets better.
