TC, I've thought the same and wondered how many other small towns are out there that we aren't hearing about. Bless you all, I continue to pray for everyone who was in the path of Katrina.

There are many things about all of this that are troubling. No thinking person would think everyone in LA is a looter. I also just wanted to say that many did choose to stay for various reasons. Be it stubbornness or what have you. But many also had no means to leave. Regardless, the situation is what it is now and everyone should be saved and helped. I just wish the few idiots would realize they are hindering progress.

TC, glad everyone could help and that Momma of Cakes set you straight!! LOL. I can't even imagine what you all are going through over there! It is just horrible. I have to say even though they keep showing the looting on tv, the thought never crossed my minded that all LA people were like that!! I am pretty positive that if it happened here in KC it would be happening for sure! I think there is so much more good going on there to help the people. I just wish they could get it there a lot faster!! Prayers are with you and everyone else there. I hope you get in touch with your friend very soon!! Be safe!

It does seem to get worse and worse, I must admit. I watched Larry King Live and one of the reporters was on the roof of a police station. He was saying that one police station only had 40% of the police show up for work, the one he was on the roof of had 60%. Apparently the police are not feeling safe and who can blame them! The reporter was on the roof because the police directed him there, they were "defending the police station against snipers"! Well, that is a bit out of hand to say the least. I hope that they soon get reinforcements from all of the other security folks. Guess we had better start praying specifically for the doctors and nurses and medical personnel, the police, the firemen, the volunteers, everyone that is trying to make a really bad situation, better!

TC You are such an inspiration! I've never even been to LA but I was just asking my hubby why they had to be showing the worst behavior possible out of a group of rebels....his sweet answer....'it's the news jen'

I hate to be negative...but the news focuses on N.O. because that's what gets the ratings....I really don't think they care. I think it's horrible that so many other cities aren't even getting state assistance! I'm sure LA is a beautiful place and I know you can't be the only angel living there....you are all in our prayers...and you have our support. Our church is rallying supplies and I know a sheriff's office nearby raised $22,000 and sent 4 or 5 tractor trailers of supplies down to LA yesterday. Good and evil seem to pour out of the woodwork in crisis....I know the good will overcome.
If you have contact information for your shelter....pm me and I can pass it on to our church.
God Bless!
