Fred Wilson has an excellent post here that sums up how I’m sure many of us feel with respect to what’s happening down south while we enjoy the weekend.
I’d like to add one other comment to his great post.
The ultimate donation every American can make is at the ballot box. We need a gov’t filled with people that care and put caring about people above everything else. This isn’t a political party issue, rather an issue at the individual level.
When you go to the ballot box and before you make that pick, just ask yourself this:
“If I was in trouble from a 9/11 or Katrina situation, would this person care? Would they go bananas with making sure I and my fellow Americans were taken care of?”
Put aside all others issues because this one really matters. It realy can “happen here” and likely will happen again.
We need a gov’t that cares. It really is that simple.
