Hurray for Houston and Mayor White
Yesterday we did not have to spend a single penny to buy airline tickets for Katrina survivors. Why? Because a horde of volunteers showed up with cars and vans, ready to drive families and groups to various cities. (This with gas prices being what they are.) Is this not amazingly beautiful? There is so much love and generosity outflowing from people. At the grassroots, when push comes to shove, we are a great country.
With distinguished leadership, Mayor White is keepig to his goal of getting survivors out of the shelters and placed in permanent housing within two weeks. If you have housing available or are looking for housing in Houston, search/register at the Houston housing site.
