This disaster comes at a critical time in American history - during which partisan efforts to steer the distrobution of our government and public resources will determine the course of our economy and domestic policy for years. It is absolutely amazing to see the gridlock of spending decisions and name-calling of congress overshadowed by the sheer generosity of the American people. I have personally witnessed relief efforts and donations from those who have been greatly hurt by the economy, regardless of political philosophy, and I can only hope more Americans are able to gain perspective from this horrific tragedy. We are part of an international community, and despite our current struggles, it is inspiring to see Americans assert that we are still in a position to give aid to the less fortunate members of that community.
