Day 4 and I somewhat have my head out of the water and guess what I am MAD! I haven't had a lot of time to sit and read comments but last night when I did I saw the reoccurring question "This isn't on the news, I had no idea..."! After a little research I found out no one is covering it other than our local stations.
I am not comparing this to Katrina but I am....
We are loosing business that help the people of our city just like Katrina
We have people in shelters that have NO WHERE to go just like Katrina
We have towns completly underwater just like Katrina
We are loosing things that cost this city A LOT of money just like Katrina
Want to know the difference? They got help and I feel like we are not! What is going on here? Is it because we are Southern, Is it because we are mainly a Republican state, Is it because you dont care?
The sad thing is is Media runs this country and the Media cares less about OUT city that is literally drowning. Katrina was awful and we helped, Haiti was TERRIBLE and we helped, California fires are unbelievable and we helped. HELP US- HELP TENNESSEE, WE NEED HELP!
I know that I joke about having 5s of reader but I have more than that and I am taking my blog and using it! Today I am asking you my blog readers that have blogs of your own to re post this post, link this post, talk about Nashville on your blogs and let people know that MY CITY is struggling. We have babies being born in homes with no water and electricity, we have people dying in their cars because they cant get help, we have kids that are starving because the Red Cross is becoming low on food, we have people who cant get to the store to refill their medications, we have elderly people sleeping on gym floors... I am asking and begging you to to re-post this so that my city, my hometown can get the help that it needs! If you know the big bloggers MckMama, Kellys Korner, BooMama, The Pioneer Woman, Undomestc Mama, Bring the Rain-Angie lives here and I hope that her and her family is safe- ask them to help for me-Please! Just help me get the word out that my city needs help. I am trying to use my Media Outlet to help my town.
