So, now that we've had our version of the tsunami here in the US, where's the love from the other countries? Should we expect some governmental bureaucrats from Japan to show up in New Orleans? How about some Red Cross volunteers from Poland making their way to Biloxi?
Anyone wanna take me up on the bet that the UN will not even acknowledge the death and destruction that has occured in the American southeast.
Because we are Americans. We rebuild other countries as well as rebuild ourselves. We don't need help from other countries, and they hate us for that. We are the greatest people in the world. We are the people who when trouble like this comes around, we band together and rebuild. Black, white, arabic, asian, hispanic, it doesn't matter. We're all Americans, and we all work together in situations like this.
I guarantee that within the next week or so, you'll see caravans of volunteers from other parts of the country going to the Mississippi/Louisiana/Alabama area that was hit so horribly to help their fellow Americans start to rebuild their lives.
It's going to be a tough thing to do, but we'll do it.
Because we're Americans, and that's what we do.
