Thank You

I have been remiss in thanking all the people who are helping Mississippi raise from the rubble that Hurricane Katrina has left behind. The National Guard has been the ones handing out water, ice, HeaterMeals, and MRE's. They seemed a little embarrassed whenever I tell them thank you.

The Seabees stationed in Gulfport who are going out and rebuilding the many schools that were heavily damaged by the storm.

The airmen at Keesler Air Force Base who even though 30% of their base was damaged have been clearing roads and diverted a water tower for the city of Biloxi so they have another source of potable water.

The Navy for providing one of their ships for reverse osmosis of salt water, so again we can have another source of potable water.

The Coast Guard and the other military helicopters who have been rescuing people.

Another thank you to the National Guard who have been given the task of digging through the rubble to find the dead from Biloxi to Lakeshore. They have also been providing security.

To all the police and firemen from New York City to Seminole County Florida who have supplemented our police and firemen.

To all the power linemen from Canada to Florida who have worked so diligently to restore our power.

To the people of FEMA, the Red Cross, the Salvation Army, and all the other volunteer groups who have brought in much needed supplies.

To the different Humane Society organizations who are helping to deal with all those animals, including cows and horses, who have become separated from their owners.

And thanks to the people of America who have once again shown their generosity.

The actions of all the responders would be extraordinary if it weren't so ordinary in America.
