What is wrong with people. CNN is reporting the a New Orleans hospital haulted the evacuation of patients after coming under sniper fire.
That is absolutely unconscionable. Seriously. These people are injured and trying to get somewhere safe. How could you be shooting at them. Some people are pathetic. I’m sure some of them are scared and want to get out of there too, but shooting at medical workers and injured patients, that’s inexcusable.
A few months ago, I gave serious consideration to joining NDMS (National Disaster Medical System) as a communications specialist. I feel kind of selfish now, because at the time I decided I had too much going on right now to join another volunteer organization. If I hadn’t, I’d probably be heading for a 14 day deployment now. Our county is deploying medical teams to the area. They havn’t asked for any of our communications team to go, but Tigress has already said go for it if they do.
Everyone, pray for those people. Things are bad down there. I’m sure worse than what’s being reported on CNN, and it’s going to take months to get it all sorted out. Say a prayer for everyone who’s lost homes, lives, and for those down there working in the relief effort.
