"Send more help to little towns like Pearlington, Mississippi…"

I was listening to the radio this evening and was touched by a story about how small towns swept away by Hurricane Katrina are already rebuilding… it emphasized the need people have to be home, even when that home is a tent, and the bond that people feel when reunited with their neighbors in their own communities… the story ended with a simple, but powerful plea…”send more help to little towns like Pearlington, Mississippi.”

It’s a reminder that, for weeks, and months after the urgent basic needs are met, people are left to rebuild their lives. These people will continue to need our help to make their lives as whole as possible, and we must do everything we can to remember them and to be there for them.
