Hope through Katrina
In the last couple of weeks, so many of us have seen the devastation and despair caused by hurricane Katrina. No doubt the people most affected were those living in poverty or below the standards of poverty. The sad truth is, there are millions of Americans who are in the same predicament everyday. What Katrina did was magnify the ugly truths of poverty that exist in many times, right next door to us. Why are there seniors in this country who are forced to choose between food to eat or medication to keep them alive, while pharmaceutical companies are making record profits? In the most powerful nation in the world, with a predominant population that claims to be Christian, why has poverty become so irrelevant to the ones who can actually help ease the burden?My highest hope through this Katrina experience is that we all have an awakening to the Truth of Loving one another.
