59. I am sure there are several stories like this one out
Edited on Tue Sep-06-05 09:48 AM by Shell Beau
there. I am sorry for everything everyone down there is going through. What I can say is that my brother is one of those down there searching for people, giving out food and water, etc. They are not arresting, beating, or doing anything to those who are stealing food and water. They know they would do the same for their families. He said they are instructed to get looters who are looting for jewelry, TVs, guns, things that are not a necessity. While, I know that a lot of the help is from those in the communities, the guard, and law enforcement agencies, etc, also need to be commended. My brother was sent down there before the hurricane hit to be prepared for the aftermath. He had to leave his wife and 2 small children to be down there not knowing what was going to happen. He saw trees being uprooted and thrown into cars. Roofs torn off of buildings. He felt scared for his life as did all of the others there. I am proud of ALL that have contributed to helping all of those who are in need right now. I am angry at how some things were handled obviously, but that will not get in the way of how proud I am of most of the others involved. On edit, I was also part of this storm, though it was only a cat. 1 when it reached me. I am proud of how my town has handled all of the evacuees and how they have graciously responded.
