I wish you fellows could watch the local Nashville news. It would put a lump in your throat.
And its not because of the flood or the damage or any of that stuff. Its the attitude of my fellow Tennesseans. They aint crying and complaining. They are working their tails off cleaning everything up. And if their house is fine they are moving to their neighbors and helping them get everything cleaned up. Most have not even contacted fema yet for relief funds. They are to busy cleaning up. I could go on and on about the volunteer efforts in this state.
An interview with a black girl impressed me as well. She said I feel blessed. People lost their life in the flood waters but all I lost were items that can be replaced.
There were no morons on the roofs of houses shooting at the cops and national gaurd!
I liked the interview with Brad Paisley. (country music singer) He lost a ton of stuff but took it in stride. He said he is over compensated for the music he plays. He cant replace all the guitars that had memorable value to it but thats not what he is concerned about. He is concerned about all the other folks that lost all their stuff and dont have the means to replace it.
The only idiots I have seen on the news so far is 3 guys from south of the border who got busted for stealing a riding lawn mower and some other yard equipment that a flooded home owner had put out in his yard.
