It is the so rewarding to be able to contribute the help to someone that really need's it, and for the most part, before I had an opportunity to have
this particular job, I wanted to help them so bad. But , I am a lower middle classs American barely making end's meet and the fact that I am doing
what I am doing now, I feel somewhat redeemed for the insufficiencies of not being wealthy to contribute my part. "That has changed and I am helping
, even though it is probably ni the simplest way."
There are so many thing's that set the situation of Katrina apart from anything that the USA has experienced,(Not forgetting 9/11 of course) for us
tto better ourselves as a country bound together at this stage we have the opportunities to get the next situation right for the people of any
disaster , we just have to learn from our mistakes and go from there to better ourselve's with the newly learned process of dealing with the
different situation's that come up with the next coming disaster and handle it accordingly. Which is why I am proud of having my position with the
very first applicated Natural disaster hotline ever instituted in the USA, and I am actually creating the part of a history that I very much want to
be a part of.
Now, The hardest thing you can deal with in this line of work, as of up to date, is the Goverment's inefficiencie's both local and fedral , they are
constantly promising this that and the other "Good" thing's and from where I stand and my position of where I work, it is really hard to
acknowledge from one good thing to tell a caller seeking help , even if it's just for a little financial aid, and realizing that this all could
change again by tomorrow! Not because of where I work, but because of the inabilities of the power's that may be's to make up thier mind's and
stick to the promise's that are set forth with and get to the basic problem's by grabbing the perverbial "Bull" by the horn's. Instead of leaving
these people that are good citizen's and are only looking for the hand up, not a hand out, that our Gov. has continually promised them and then
retract the good new's for "really" bad out come's.
With this article that I had posted, it break's my heart that there were so many that parished in the Katrina event because of shear "Neglect" and
"Disrespect" because of big politic's and over zealous A-Hole's off office , to go a head and pass a judgement call serious enough to say "Just
leave them behind if they can't get out on thier own." and by the way "We aren't going to pay for this out of the Gov. funding, Cause we don't
have too!!" IT is truly an eye opening and terrible reality to know that there are going to be possibly some more Elderly people to die if this
stupid "Asessment" of fund's is not taken care of for the people, by the people of the people of these United states of America!!
I deal with these situation's every day, and it get's very hard to respect our gov. both the local level and the Fedral.
But what can I do ,but sit here and be a spectator to the most unnerving game of "Human Chess" I have ever seen in my life.
I love my job and what I do, too bad the Gov. doesn't feel the same way..
