To the Valley News:
Because of “Sandy” things here are not dandy. Millions on their knees. Winter’s closing in, patience growing thin. If there’s no heat, they will freeze.
Flood water had its way washing neighborhoods away. Times are really tough. Red Cross can’t do enough.
“It’s something like a bomb landed,” they say.
FEMA promises for sure finances are in store for those who can prove a loss.
People standing in line, insurance claims to sign. Senior citizens getting pretty cross.
Other issues arise. Folks taken by surprise; no electric power.
Provisions can’t deliver; roads run like a river; store owners wait while consumers glower.
Conditions are crude. They cry for shelter. They need food.
Send caring folks, who can be found, who can turn this tragedy around and let Your Peace abound.
