I think it is incredible that you are able to help these people and show them that their life actually mattered, even though it has to be the hardest thing to witness so much despair and hopelessness.
While I was in Philadelphia with the same class of people, I learned the hard reality that the government wanted that part of the city to literally die off. They did nothing to help people who were in horrible situations, and even critized and interrogated those of us who would lend a hand. It was sad seeing these people who are actually amazing people, being treated like stray animals.
We should not be questioning why those people didn't leave, it is obvious that they couldn't. We should be pissed that help wasn't there the minute after Katrina hit. The people in New Orleans weren't the only ones aware of it's arrival and the severity it was bound to bring.
Again, I am so glad there are people who are willing to stretch out their arms and help. Truly amazing.


Maybe some of those people will buy some of the folks from New Orleans cars, so the next time there's a disaster they'll be able to leave.


Are the churches in Muskogee helping out? Cause if they aren't, I need to call a friend who is a youth pastor at one and bitch at him.


I didn't see any there but the press wasn't even being allowed in at that time so I'm not sure if any came later.


Thanks for being there, Adam. I am sure your presence brought hope.

Thanks for sharing your story Adam.


Hey Adam, thanks for caring about those precious people and taking care of them the best you're able to. As a fellow refugee from New Orleans, I appreciate it. Peace.

Hey! Good to see you again! It's been an incredibly long time... I'm interested in how the job is goin'.... been thinkin' about volunteering for the local fire department... let me know what it's like or any advice you got!



How are you brother? I think its fantastic that you are thinking about volunteering. It is one of the most satisfying things that I have ever done. I just spent about two weeks in class with some volunteers and they are great people. It's a lot of work and it can be very dangerous. But if that doesn't bother you then you should definately do it. You can email me if you have any other questions.


It makes me angry when crimes can still be commited during harsh times.

I hope it's over soon.
