Time for compassion

By Miguel Guanipa

It is quite interesting how a tragedy like Hurricane Katrina and the chaos which has ensued due to this catastrophic event can spark so many diverse responses from different kinds of people.

Global terrorists will probably see an opportunity to proclaim that their deity's wrath has finally come upon America.

Liberal activists will surely try to find a way to blame it on US President George W. Bush. Greedy moguls will seize any opportunities to profit from it, and environmentalists will more than likely contrive a link to global warming.

But most people, thankfully, will be moved by compassion and try to find a way to help the victims of this great tragedy. Diversity is indeed a good thing after all.
