This August will be the 3rd anniversary of one of the most tragic and shameful events in American history. Our government's pathetic response then and now leaves so many still with out homes or livelihood.   We should remember that people are still suffering greatly in Louisiana and Mississippi.  There are programs and opportunities to donate time and money.  I know that we can some times feel overwhelmed at the amount of suffering that surrounds us but we can always do something no matter how small to affect the lives of those who are so much worse off than we are.  Let's think of something we can do in August to mark the 3rd anniversary of Katrina and it's victims.  I will post some ideas and hope others will too.

I was just back in New Orleans for The Essence Festival and it was just so sad to visit the 9th Ward.  The area is still so devastated and though people want to move back home there is no governmental support for this effort.  For the few people who still have homes, there is no water in the area.  There are really just a bunch of concrete steps.  It is inconceivable to me that this group of long-term homeowners and renters have not been helped and even more shocking that it is not a part of the national presidential debate.

The Journey for Change Global Ambassadors want to go to New Orleans to help re-build.  We are thinking about St. Bernard's Parish.  If anyone has volunteered in this area, we would love some information and feedback.  Thanks.

I think a good point of contact would be Habitat for Humanity for re-builing projects and the local churches and schools for outreach (food, clothing, supplies etc.)

Hello.  As we are watching and praying for the people of the Gulf States as Hurricane Gustave makes its way toward land, lets start thinking of ways that we can help.  Please pay special attention to what the people working for the non-profit organizations and the people themselves say they need.  It is so important (and I struggle with this as well) to give what the people need and not what you think the people need or what you want to give them.  Let us all say a collective prayer for the safety of all and get prepared to serve as best we can.  Thanks.

Even now not much has changed, and also the fact is poor areas---and thus, as well, areas that were largely black have received the least help. Of course the rich people would get their homes built back while the poorest people don't get the help they need. People have forgotten about it but Hurricane Katrina needs to not be forgotten.

"I was getting a lot of letters and calls before Katrina," Unsworth says. "But since then, I've not heard from any of them or even gotten any mail from the schools. It's been about two weeks since I've gotten anything from anybody or talked to a coach."

Unsworth's story isn't much different from other players' across Louisiana and Mississippi. It's estimated 20 of the top 40 players in Louisiana were affected in some way by the storm. Many prospects changed high schools or moved to states such as Alabama, Florida and Texas. Because home and cell phones no longer were operating, the lines of communication between recruits and colleges were cut.

"I don't know if anybody knows where we're at," says former New Orleans John F. Kennedy receiver Courtney Smith, who moved to Prattville, Ala., after his house and school were wiped out. "My coach back in New Orleans said I was close to landing my first offer, but with the storm and having to move, I'm afraid nobody knows where I'm at."

Even the lucky ones who didn't have to move aren't set because a good chunk of their senior seasons was canceled.

"Who I think is hurt the most is the type of prospects who would have earned an offer if they played well their senior season," Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron says. "We have not seen that as much because we know where our guys are. But it's going to happen to somebody because a lot of teams are still not playing games."
