There seems to be no end to the remembrance of the victims of September 11, 2001. For the victims of Katrina, even their children have not all been returned to them. Apparently there is a lack of funding for computers to track which child belongs to which parent. In the meantime, there is oodles of funding to ensure that every bone fragment is linked to the correct 9/11 victim. Most of the 9/11 families are millionaires, while most of the victims of Katrina are still displaced, and many remain homeless and unemployed.
How does our federal government, particularly FEMA, decide which disaster should be given top priority? We need a standard that does not depend on race, religion, socio-economic status, or any other factor that prefers one group, or one state over another. The Lord God Almighty will have a disaster plan that gives a cash settlement to every victim who has proof of losses up to a certain maximum. Every life will be worth the same, every limb will be worth the same, and every eye, ear or nose will be worth the same.
Disaster relief should not be tied to one's level of education or employment status. That one experienced the disaster is all that should be necessary in order for relief to flow. The Lord God Almighty is a God of justice, of principle, of compassion, and of equality.
The Lord God Almighty El Shaddai
