My heart is so heavy for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I watch the images on Fox News and cry as if I am watching my own family. It is hard to fathom the extent of the devastation that so many families are experiencing.
An email was sent out to members of my church stating that volunteers had spread the word to 6 different hotels here in the Memphis area that we will be serving free dinner tonight, tomorrow night, and Friday night to those displaced by Katrina. Also we are collecting items these families can use--clothing, snack items, toys, diapers, etc. I am just so proud of how our church is really stepping up to help these families in need and demonstrating Christ's love! I know I want to do whatever I can to help. I feel ashamed at how I have taken for granted such things as clean drinking water, shelter, food, etc.
I encourage everyone who reads this to please do SOMETHING! ANYTHING you can do to help! How can we not??
