THIS IS THE WAY IS USED TO BE WHEN AMERICA WAS "ONE"
No matter what the challenge Americans would step up from across our great land and jump into action to help their "fellow Americans". We never used to wait for the federal government to act, instead every community that could spare the men and equipment would just begin traveling to the scene of the emergency.
This is the way it should be. No politics, not cultural or ethnic barriers and not a lot of paperwork. Just "neighbors" helping each other.
This is a map of the states sending their finest so far.
The prayers of your countrymen go with you all.
