I will keep this simple: in the face of Katrina’s aftermath, the devastation is almost beyond comprehension. There have been a lot of stories about looters, random shootings in the streets, local/state/federal government failings, families displaced and so on. Personally, it breaks my heart every time I hear about it.
I guess that’s why I keep scouring the news for stories of hope and humanity, to find a shred of decency in the face of all this. I thought I would start up a thread to try to show some of the good amidst all of the tragedy. This isn’t to lose focus on the steps that must be taken to fix all of this mess… just to show that some good will occur in the face of utter tragedy.
I saw this article on Curt Schilling of the Boston Red Sox putting up a family of 9 for a year, so I wanted to share it with all. Always nice to see athletes putting those millions towards doing some good.
