    Subject: Katrina Aftermath - From a Retired Pastor in McComb MS



    Many of you have seen how true this is . . .


    David Millican is a retired preacher here in McComb, MS.

    To my friends and family:

    What I have seen since Katrina:

    The poor and the wealthy hurt by the storm.
    Black, white, hispanic, oriental and Indian all hurt by the storm.

    Christian people giving, giving, giving.

    Churches going all out to minister in Jesus' name.

    Neighbors going door to door helping one another.

    Thugs and hoodlums going door to door looking for someone vulnerable.

    Ice and water being fought over as police tried to keep the peace.

    People coming up from New Orleans taking over empty houses because shelters are full.

    Out of town volunteers coming with food and staying for now a week still serving it.

    The Churches all over this part of the country doing what Christians do in a crisis.

    FEMA doing a wonderful job in getting help to us.
    The Red Cross doing a great job in the shelters.

    The Salvation Army doing a great job in the community.

    Four Hundred crewman from everywhere bring back the power to our homes, churches and businesses.

    Lines at service stations a block to a mile long.

    National Guardsman patrolling the streets of McComb along with Kentucky policemen protecting us from
    the hoodlums and thugs of McComb, Pike County and New Orleans (the most dangerous city in the world before Katrina.).

    Drug dealers working outside shelters.

    Doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel working tirelessly, even sleeping in the hospital
    to do the job God called them to do.

    WHAT I HAVE NOT SEEN;

    The ACLU setting up a feeding line.

    People for the American Way helping in the shelters.

    The NAACP doing any work whatsoever.

    The American Atheist organization serving meals in the shelters.

    Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton directing traffic at the gas stations.

    I could go on but you get my message. It's the Christian people with love and compassion who do the work.

    The gripers in Congress should come on down and get in line to pass the water and the ice.

    Are you listening Hillary, Chuck, Teddy and all the sorry loafers we call Senators and Congressmen.

    They don't have a clue as to what this life is all about here on the gulf coast.

    Boy I feel better now.

    So true, and unfortunatly, the big media will still refer to them as the experts in all things that put a black eye on Christians or conservatives.

    Makes one proud to be an American, numbered with the vast majority of Judeo/Christian believers who cherish this great Republic and will always take care of their own!!!

    Some of our leaders just don't have a clue as to what the back bone of this great country is.
    and it is us the plain everyday working folks trying to do the right thing.
    we have morals and beliefs that others can't understand.
    many have to work two jobs to make ends met, most all have both husband & wife working.
    We don't need to keep up with the jones or the smiths we just need to believe in each other and help when we can.





    So if you would like to make a donation to the 358Winchester new gun fund email me for the street address to mail you checks to. I swear it will go to make me extra happy :D
