Whenever or wherever a disaster occurs, who always comes to the aid of the country devastated by an earthquake, hurricane, or flood? The good old U.S. of A., of course.

Where are all the countries that are suppose to be America’s friends? Like France, Italy, Spain, England, Greece, Norway, Sweden, Mexico and so many others.

We have a major disaster in six of our Southern states. Homes and roads and businesses have been completely destroyed by tornadoes. Loss of life is over 300 and climbing. If ever there was a time America could use a helping hand, it’s now.
