Katrina to Gustav

Today is really a very sad day for the people of New Orleans. I'm praying that all their preparation will be unnecessary, that people won't lose their homes a second time, that the levees won't fail again, that Gustav will spare that region another three, four, five years of devastation. I was pleasantly surprised to read how Baltimore is supporting this effort to evacuate and maintain order in NO by sending out teams from the city fire department. Hopefully this time around, help won't be more than a phone call away. In fact, wouldn't it be amazing if a phone call wasn't even necessary? If the country just rallied to send support now?
