    An email from a friend. David Millican is a real person and a retired pastor in McComb, MS.


    Friday, September 16, 2005


    I do not know David Milican, who wrote the following, but I would like to thank him for bringing these facts to our attention. Read, appreciate, and remember!


    Subject: McComb aftermath of Katrina


    To my friends and family:


    What I have seen since Katrina:


    The poor and the wealthy hurt by the storm.


    Black, white, Hispanic, Oriental and Indian all hurt by the storm.


    Christian people giving, giving, giving.


    Churches going all out to minister in Jesus' name.


    Neighbors going door to door helping one another.


    Thugs and hoodlums going door to door looking for someone vulnerable.


    Ice and water being fought over as police tried to keep the peace.


    People coming up from New Orleans taking over empty houses because

    shelters are full.


    Out of town volunteers coming with food and staying for now a week

    still serving it.


    The Churches all over this part of the country doing what Christians do in a crisis.


    FEMA doing a wonderful job in getting help to us.


    The Red Cross doing a great job in the shelters.


    The Salvation Army doing a great job in the community.


    Four Hundred crewman from everywhere bring back the power to our homes,

    churches and businesses.


    Lines at service stations a block to a mile long.


    National Guardsman patrolling the streets of Mccomb along with Kentucky policemen protecting us from the hoodlums and thugs of McComb, Pike County and New Orleans (the most dangerous city in the world before Katrina.)


    Drug dealers working outside shelters.


    Doctors, nurses and other hospital personnel working tirelessly, even sleeping in the hospital to do the job God called them to do.




    WHAT I HAVE NOT SEEN;


    The ACLU setting up a feeding line.


    People for the American Way helping in the shelters.


    The NAACP doing any work whatsoever.


    The American Atheist organization serving meals in the shelters.


    Jesse Jackson directing traffic at the gas stations.


    I could go on but you get my message. Its the Christian people with love and compassion who do the work.


    The gripers in Congress should come on down and get in line to pass the water and the ice. Are you listening Hillary, Chuck, Teddy and all the sorry loafers we call senators and congressmen? They don't have a clue as to what this life is all about here on the Gulf Coast.


    Boy, I feel better now.


    David A. Millican

    Actually this is making the rounds as a mass
    e-mail and the author is in doubt or the said
    person may not have written it...nobody found
    anything it is being propagated at free republic.

    one response from free republic:

    Please verify that "What I have seen, what I NOT seen" was truly written by David A. Millican. As he has a doctorate degree, I doubt that he would have had the misspellings as shown in your post/Google. This story with attribution to David Millican is making the rounds as a chain e-mail and I wish to verify the attribution.

    I found it curious that such a man of God would publicly chastise certain folks, organizations. The story makes it sound as though only Christians are helping disaster victims. Of course, this is not the case. For instance, if you type into your browser, Katrina Jews, you'll find just one example of other faiths reaching out. I am not Jewish.


    someone just pushing the propaganda to divide
    this great nation.

    carpro: I had not read this post. Very good! [​IMG]

    Aslanspal: Apocryphal or not it is essentially true, particularly the last part. [​IMG]
