As I was looking for more information on the Nashville flood, I came across this video:
While the subtle jabs at us stung a bit, I understand the frustration. There are many questions, but I will leave those for the people that deserve the answers more than me. I do find it amazing that such a tragedy could occur and virtually go unnoticed, until just recently. I am just as angry about the 11, who died on the BP rig out in the Gulf. We seem to hear about the long term environmental impact, whose at fault and the money that will be spent cleaning or penalizing the offending company. What have we become where we ignore the plight of actual humans over ideology and politics? Frankly, I am more dismayed by the lack of attention to human lives than the recent major events that have taken place. We need to take a long hard look at ourselves and decide which direction we are going to take. We can’t unite, if we don’t exist.
Again, please visit Suburban Turmoil for ongoing information and heroic stories of the Nashville Flood, as well as information on donations and how you can help if you are in the area. If you can’t do that (And believe me, I understand the sick feeling that overcomes someone from this area looking at this massive flood), then pray. It is the least you could do for your fellow Americans, hell, your fellow humans.
