This is the kind of stuff I like to see. When we take it upon ourselves to do what needs to be done, the result can only be successful.

 

But having said all of that, there is something that deeply disturbs me that I need to bring up.

 

I seem to remember three years ago that this government set up a September 11th Victims Compensation Fund. While I don't remember the amount of money available in the fund, I do know that it was greater than 6 Billion Dollars.

 

Not only that, I distinctly remember that the families of the victims received $250,000 for pain and suffering, $50,000 for the surviving spouse, and $50,000 for each surviving dependent.

 

While it is early in the game, my question is: Where is the Katrina Victims Compensation Fund? As surely as the government was able to quickly assign a dollar amount to the pain and suffering of 9/11 victims, it will be interesting to see if the same principle will be applied here.

 

Don't get me wrong. I am not a proponent of handouts, but it seems to me that those that share my view had no problem oling out an entitlement when it concerned upper and middle class whites.

 

Just an observation

Timebomb,

Glad we agree. Its definitely time to unite us

Familes of 9-11 victims received $300,000 to $3,000,000 dollars,

depending on income.

Shaq: Katrina Aid ‘Right Thing to Do‘
Staff and agencies
10 September, 2005

By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Sports Writer Sat Sep 10, 5:51 PM ET

MIAMI - Sweat dripping from his head as he worked in the midday South Florida sun, Shaquille O‘Neal loaded the last item into a cavernous 18-wheel trailer and pointed to the generous stranger.

For the last week, O‘Neal and his wife have coordinated efforts to help those in Louisiana and Mississippi whose lives were ripped apart by Hurricane Katrina. And Saturday, O‘Neal was on the front line, personally accepting medical items, toiletries, clothes and other items from those inclined to help.

The tractor-trailers hired by the O‘Neal family are expected to begin rolling Tuesday toward Baton Rouge, La. — where O‘Neal, the Miami Heat center, attended LSU.

O‘Neal spent two days in Louisiana shortly after the storm struck, returning home deeply moved by what he saw. And donating money, he said, simply wouldn‘t be enough.

A warehouse commandeered to store the donations is nearly filled to capacity. There‘s 10,000 gallons of water, piles of diapers, peroxide, personal items and clothing, plus even some donations of refrigerators and beds — which will be used to help furnish 400 apartments the O‘Neals plan to rent for refugees in Dallas and other areas.

The O‘Neals are unclear what will exactly happen once the trucks leave South Florida. They‘re finding that the process of distributing items throughout the ravaged region is perhaps the most difficult part of the plan.

"It‘s just frustrating," Shaunie O‘Neal said. "All you‘re trying to do is help and get help to people in need and you see these people on TV just begging for help and whoever, I‘m not going to point any fingers, but ... it‘s very, very, very difficult."

Other citizens — all unknowing they were about to meet O‘Neal — brought cases of soap and deodorant, plus toothbrushes, toothpaste, baby wipes and numerous other items.

O‘Neal said the damage he saw during his visit to Louisiana was unimaginable. So he returned home "to devise a plan," he said, and urged his friends and corporations he works with to provide immediate help.
