Baton Rouge LA is experiencing record flooding but the good news is people are uniting and coming together to help.
When you look at the videos and pictures coming from Baton Rouge the immediate comparisons that come to your mind is Katrina. We are seeing houses under 6 feet of water or higher. We are seeing widespread mass destruction due to historic levels of flooding. Unlike Katrina, the government is not heavily involved. They are not playing the blame game with politicians. At the end of this you will see a clear comparison. Katrina was a disaster mostly because government was involved. Baton Rouge will experience less problems because government is not interfering. We are seeing people of every stripe — rich, poor, black and white — all helping each other get back on their feet. If you feel that your fellow man has let you down, you need to look to Baton Rouge LA where people are helping people build their lives with no government interference.
Scott McKay from the Hayride had a chance to talk with me about what’s going on in Baton Rouge LA. He’s from there and he has a close up look with what’s going on.
The challenges are still very great in Baton Rouge LA and it will take some time for people to get back on their feet. It will take months for people to get things back to normal. The death toll is expected to rise as well. There will be some level of Government involved but much less compared to Katrina. Baton Rouge is a shining example of how people should be treating their fellow man. Continue to pray for the people of Baton Rouge and help them out anyway you can.
