Oh Dear.... I have had this in the back of my head ever since we knew that Hurricane Alex would be hitting Mexico. I knew that Mexico would get severally damaged. And my heart hurts when I see these pictures. When we drove down to the levees the other day there were people standing by their cars, slowing down, taking pictures all in awe of nature. Instead of us just here gawking at the rising waters... how about all those who actually had so much damage due to the water that are in our levees now.
I have a dear friend who's girlfriend lives in Mexico and is pregnant. If I were him I would have brought her over here long ago. She sent me these pictures and said that this is what is really going on. People panicking because they have no early idea what to do! But everyone is helping each other and doing the best they can. Now also, the Rio Grande is rising and she said that it's feet away from where she works, how scary is that!
Anywho, so I thought that these pictures might leave you "WORDLESS" because they sure did me. I'd ask to send your prayers, but don't want to get religion involved in this. Anyone, no matter the religion has to feel for these people. If you can go help, please do! They did have a telethon last weekend and raised a ton of money. A local radio station also went around collecting food packages from grocery stores, people, businesses and received tons of donations. We just don't know if it's enough.
Please, do share these pictures because people are still devastated by this natural disaster.
