Prayer or government?Thursday, February 7, 2008 at 4:20 | Posted in USA | Leave a comment

A series of powerful tornadoes have caused substantial damage and a large number of casualties in southern parts of US:
In Washington, President George W. Bush offered prayers and disaster relief for the victims.
“Prayers can help, and so can the government,” Bush said. “I do want the people in those states that the American people are standing with them.”
Baring in mind the US government’s response to Katrina a couple of years ago, or absence of response, I wonder which help is going to arrive sooner, that of the government or a miracle prompted by prayers.
Edit: The American Red Cross have set up a blog for information on the Red Cross response: http://redcrosstn.wordpress.com/ I should have remembered there was a third option available for those in need of help.
