    IF THERE AREN'T ENOUGH BUSES, WHY AREN'T THEY LETTING PEOPLE DRIVE DOWN AND HELP. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS WHO WOULD BE WILLING. I UNDERSTAND THERE IS A DANGER, BUT IF THERE WERE OBVIOUSLY ENOUGH CARS FOR EVERYONE, I DON'T THINK PEOPLE WOULD OVERRUN THE CARS. AM I THE ONLY ONE THINKING THIS? PROBABLY NOT BUT I HAVEN'T SEEN THIS ANYWHERE ELSE. SOMEONE TELL ME IF YOU KNOW. THANKS.

    I agree with Kathy Lacina, only Im in St. Louis - and I would LOVE to adopt a small family - I don't have a lot of room but I have a lot of love and my son and I have been in floods and dire circumstances before and we want to be a comfort to others like God sent comfort to us through others... if we could help we would love to - I could drive there this weekend since it is a holiday weekend.. Please contact me at rojohawaii@aol.com or 636-536-2838 if you have the capability. I WANT TO HELP! PLEASE!

    God bless you and be with you,
    Robyn

    Thank you for your up-to-date info. I am writing because I am hoping you have some added suggestions for how to help. I live near Chicago and when I read and watch the news clips about what is happening, I feel helpless. I could send money but somehow that just doesn't seem enough. Is there some way that people could just open up there homes for an extended period of time to help the people who are stranded with nowhere to go? I have been involved in the past with helping refugees from other countries and I know how to help. I just don't know how to go about finding who to help and how would I convince them that I am a nice perosn and not just some psychopath (since even you wold not know this)? Do agencies like World Relief handle refugees in our own country? I imagine it would have to be done in some organized manner but I fear that many of these people do not have the time to wait for organization. Aaagh, this is so frustrating and it breaks my heart. I cannot even begin to imagine the frustration of families who don't have food or water and no hope. Can I just drive there and offer to bring a family home--that sounds crazy but if it could be handled by churches or organizations and good people could give references...is it possible? I feel we need to do more than we are doing. I know you have much to do. I and my family are praying for these people but I believe that prayer includes action where possible. If you have any ideas, please let me know. Thank you. Kathy
