Our nation will rise to the occasion
by Kelli Carlin-Auger

Mr. LeCompte, I believe that as each day passes and we learn more and more, the enormity of the damage caused and of the lives lost from the Tsunami that the greatest nation in the world will rise to the occasion (for lack of a better phrase) and once again come to the aide of the world (as we should).

Don't be too quick to judge our Commander in Chief. I do believe that he will once again make us proud to be Americans!

God Bless America and God Bless Us All....

So this tenfold increase is indicative of American generosity, but it also is indicative of the need. The need is great, and not just for immediate relief but for long-term reconstruction, rehabilitation, family support, economic support that's going to be needed for these countries to get back up on their feet." - Read More...
