They Will Come

They have informed my local school districts to be expecting an influx of new students from the Gulf Coast because many of those residents have family in this area and, due to our proximity to centers that can be reliably be used as refugee centers, we will most likely receive a few hundred to a thousand refugees on top of that. The schools are taking students with no questions asked--they will not need identification or shot/birth records. I'm glad that they are thinking ahead.

If your area will be getting refugees, there are several ways you can help in addition to donations and housing. They will need psychologists for counseling and tutors for the children. There will be many ways to donate our time, so think outside of the box. There's a good chance that the government will drop these people off and it will be sink or swim afterwards.

200 students are relocating to our campus dormitories. I plan on extensively interviewing whoever wants to talk.

I love you all for caring. A very wealthy family we know (through work, not through friendship) gives million of dollars to the republican party and the catholic church. Guess how much they gave to the disaster relief fund. 1000 dollars. That may like a lot, but these are people who have multiple successful corporations with millions of dollars to spare. That's what the whole eye of the needle/camel story is about in the bible. They should know that given their catholic ties.
