Let’s see… what’s in the news… huge oil spill in the Gulf… more arrests in the Times Square bombing attempt… violence in Greece…
…wait. What’s this about a disaster of epic proportions? In Nashville? Where’s the mainstream media?
Seriously. A great American city is under water today. Damage estimates are in the billions of dollars. At least five people are dead. The rain totals are incredible. Please, take 4 minutes and watch this video. It’ll shock you… and it’ll move you… and it’ll make you wonder: Why have we not heard much about this?? I have no explanation — not even a theory — as to why this has been virtually ignored by the media. It is, though, a shocking and disgraceful dereliction of duty.
Following the video is a list of charitable organizations that are doing what they can to help the residents of Nashville.
How to help:
- Middle Tennessee Red Cross Chapters
- Tennessee Emergency Relief Fund
- WSMV-TV is doing a telethon tonight, featuring Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, Naomi Judd, Darius Rucker, Phil Vassar, Steve Wariner, Buddy Jewell, Lonestar, Bo Bice and Lee Roy Parnell.
- An organization called Hands On Nashville has a listing of other organizations that are helping in the flood relief effort
So let’s get the word out: Please pass this along and see if we can help our fellow Americans in Nashville in their time of need.
