marvin olasky on katrina

World Magazine editor, Marvin Olasky, has written about the response of Americans in the aftermath of Katrina. Here is an excerpt; I would encourage you to read the entire article. It certainly brings another perspective to the story we are getting from the media.

"Before expressing disgust with America, please spend a couple of hours reading through Internet postings like this one: "We are a family of five. ... We have a very small room with a bed and two small dressers that we will offer to you so that you can get back on your feet. You will be welcome at our family table. ... We don't have much money after the bills are paid, but we'll happily share whatever we can. We don't expect you to pay us, and we won't expect you to leave quickly. It takes time to rebuild, and we'll give you that time."

Good old Dr. O. I have seen this portrayed in the mainstream American media, I guess the journalists worldwide aren't telling those stories.
