Melba Harris, 86, lays on interstate 10 in New Orleans.
This is what happens when our government spends all of our money on senseless wars, tax cuts to the rich, ruining social security, and upholding institutionalized racism and classism.
Although it is difficult in this time of sorrow, now is the time to speak out against the Bush Administration. Take a moment to make a donation to the rescue efforts. I recommend donating through the NAACP web site. Then take another moment to write a letter, make a phone call, or talk to your friends about the failures of this administration. There is no reason why our elders should be dying on the side of the road.
