New Orleans. Gone.
When levees keep breaking like they did yesterday, the city has been ruined, destroyed. All of those houses with water over the rooflines, it's unbelievable. How will people be able to rebuild even if the city gets dried out? Right now, we need to take care of our fellow Americans affected by the hurricane.
For immediate disaster relief needs, please give to the American Red Cross.
For long-term relief, I'd like to direct you to Catholic Charities to help them assist with housing, medical and counseling services.
We all may not be able to drive to the area and lend a hand, but we should support those who can provide the help our fellow citizens need.
