We must not forget all those that were so badly affected by the hurricane just days ago.....many that will never be able to return to their homes, since no homes remain. When I see the photos from areas like the Bolivar Peninsula and Galveston Island, I wonder how anything survived such destruction. Two organizations that are at work to provide assistance and aid to the victims of Ike are the American Red Cross, and the Humane Society of the United States. With this disaster coming right on the heels of Hurricane Gustav, both organizations are badly in need of donations to help fund their missions. Every dollar makes a difference. If you haven't had enough media coverage, here is a link to a gallery of photos that will certainly bring the level of the affects of this storm into reality for you. Please keep the victims of Ike in your prayers and thoughts.
