Louisiana residents are a strong and resilient people. They help each other, friends, neighbors, strangers, it matters not. All Americans.
Unfortunately, 13 people have been killed.
As anticipated, National Media (MSM) has essentially ignored this catastrophe because the local constituency and affected community doesn’t fit the pert box, the profile, the correct personage of victim for the media to support.
President Obama hasn’t stopped golfing a day – and he won’t.
However, there are groups making a difference:
♦ Samaritans Purse – Franklin Graham has a team there, and they will remain throughout the crisis to help people – Great organization to support HERE
♦ Ingles Supermarket – (outside the area) is donating and also serving as a collection and distribution network for food and supplies – You can also support them HERE They will be transporting supplies into Louisiana.
♦ Volunteers are needed – Lots of volunteers are needed. Anyone interested in helping can visit Volunteer Louisiana HERE
Meanwhile let’s worry about Syria… Because Louisiana is, well, just not the same global story CNN likes to sell daily.
