People helping people in San Diego wildfire emergency!

This CNN video brought tears to my eyes. Maybe it's because we hear so much ab0ut the nasty and hateful things going on in this country, we're not used to stories about people helping people and animals.

In a nutshell, thousands of people in the San Diego area have fled their home and sought refuge at QualComm stadium. Hundreds of volunteers across the state are at the stadium donating items and services for people and pets (including small pets and larger ones like goats and horses!) making sure that nobody goes without necessities.

Watch the video I posted, it will really make you feel good!!

What's going on in San Diego is a fine example of how it's supposed to work. When you see the images of people helping each other out, no looting or rioting, no complaining or whining about "where's the government?" and then you flash back to New Orleans and the pathetic display that took place there, all you can do is shrug your shoulders and ask "WTF?"

New Orleans and Mayor Nagin should learn something from this.
