This morning down at the Junebug Cafe and Inernet Lounge, the assembled citizenry attempted to mend the fences from Tuesday's political roundtable. We searched for some common ground - something we all agreed upon. It was tough, but then Juanita mentioned Hurricane Katrina.
See, folks around here have lots of friends and kin who were hit by the hurricane and are still suffering the aftermath today. This tends to get us riled up, and even Dickie Jensen has to hang his head with disgust when the topic is raised. So, I sat down at Prudy's computer and searched around for some Katrina-related sites and found this video on YouTube.
It was made by a 16-year-old activist from Alabama named Ava Lowery. Ava runs a website called peacetakescourage.com that tackles a number of political issues. YouTube has lots of videos that she has produced, mostly about the Iraq war. Anyway, this video seemed to sum up how us folks down in Junebug Holler feel about Hurricane Katrina.
