Helping in New Orleans

A group of 34 young people from the Winchester Unitarian Society Youth Group (WUSYG) spent their February vacation working with Common Ground in New Orleans trying to help people who have been devastated by Katrina.

You can read their stories on the WUSYG web site. What strikes me is the anger they feel about the lack of attention to the ongoing devastation, services for the survivors, and response from most of us.

Find out more about the grass roots organization Common Ground which is helping survivors of the Gulf coast hurricanes at their web site:

Another group of youth and adults from the society are finishing up a week there now.
