Hurricane Ike NAACP Relief Efforts — Day 1 (Sept. 14)
Posted on September 15, 2008
"Its Katrina all over again"... When I received word last night that I was to fly to Texas in the morning to assist NAACP units with hurricane relief efforts I honestly questioned my reason for going. According to reports and images on television, the devastation caused by Hurricane Ike wasn't nearly as bad as what was seen after Hurricane Katrina. This time there were no pictures of crying babies in need of formula. No stories of mass "looting" by people in search of food and supplies. No video of government helicopters flying past citizens screaming for help on the tops of submerged houses.
