Katrina by Lee Hartsell

Mandatory evacuations were called.
Many did not evacuate New Orleans though.
People ignored the warnings. Levies broke.
Day after day water filled the streets.
People appeared out of the water.
They walked to the Superdome.
People died trying to get to the superdome.
Some people died from no water or food.
Women and children were raped in the Superdome.
People sat on houses and held up signs that said, "Help us."
I was drawn to my knees that day, as I watched the people appear in the flooded streets.
Convoys' of trucks, buses, and boats arrived on the 4th day, after the Hurricane hit.
Policemen turned their guns on themselves, because they felt helpless.
There was rioting in the streets.
Houses were demolished. Casinos were picked up and moved across the streets.
Millions were lost daily from sinful Casinos.
Christian people helped with Bibles, prayer, food, water, and other supplies.
ACLU protested, when the Christians helped.
It is hard to believe that less than 2000 people were killed.
Many refugees were transported to other areas all over the U.S.A. to live.
