    even though the hurricane did not pass my way
    today
    i shook my head and decided to pray
    the government is clearly focused on the wrong thing
    those new world refugges will not see the flowers bloom in spring
    and the city is under water
    god please save those black brothas and those black daughters
    and the mothers and the fathers

    its in your hands and i believe with each and every fiber in my being that you will bring them out of this

    the government will suffer
    no sense of urgency what so ever
    no remorse no respect no worries no cares

    god bless my people god bless all people affected directly and in directly


    this was something sophisticated equipment couldnt predict

    but god works in ways unfamiliar to the common man

    re:Katrina

    I do not like the phrase " Refugees" . These are Americans born and raise here. Excellent write.
