Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


What did I tell you?

76,000 people are now feared dead in that tsunami. And, what did I say? Americans would lead the way in relief efforts.

From the AP story:
"We will stand with them as they start to rebuild their communities," President Bush said from his Texas ranch in his first comments on the disaster Sunday that so far has killed more than 76,000.
Bush pledged a multifaceted response from the United States that goes far beyond the $35 million initially pledged, including U.S. military manpower and damage surveillance teams in the short term and long-term rebuilding assistance. He also called on Americans to donate cash to relief organizations to augment the response.

I am proud to live in a great country that embraces those less fortunate wherever they are in the world.

    After seeing all those little kids without parents, I sent off my donation to Americare today. It is amazing to me to see all the Westerners that were killed or hurt over there. There was the one supermodel who was able to cling to a tree branch for eight hours until she was rescued...her pelvis shattered...her boyfried was sucked out and is missing. Jet Li was there also, but only got minor injuries. It was good to see that little Swedish boy reuninted with his dad.
