What did we in New Mexico learn from the Katrina disaster?
"Preparedness—and not to be too
vulnerable. We too could be victims. It doesn't have to be a natural
"Mother Nature doesn't play favorites!
And it's about people helping people. We can't rely on the government."
"To be prepared. God moves in mysterious
ways. Don't take anything for granted."
"You learn about the shortness of life
and the need for the government to step in and respond in times
of crisis. Really, just the frailty of our human existence."
"We can't get too attached to anything
material. When you're asked to evacuate—go! We (Americans)
should have been the benchmark for helping in a disaster."
