Katrina aftermath

I am looking at some of the pictures of the aftermath of Katrina and the state of the people remaining. It is awful. I wonder how they will ever fix up these devastated places and with so many homeless people now, where will they all be housed? There are just so many problems stretching far and wide as the devastation. There are so many things to worry about - diseases, looting, violence, relief, cleanup...It is just so difficult to attend to everything at the same time. It is all just very tragic and I think we could just pray that things do start to look better for everyone somehow.

Another terrible thing is how almost all the people who are suffering through this are the poor black people who were unable to leave because they have no means to do so when they could. It's like the whole place only had black people from the photos you see...doesn't even look like America.
