Thanks of a Grateful Nation

It's been reported on CNN that, as the first large-scale shipment of anything arrives in New Orleans (days and an unknown number of lives later), twenty-two nations (including South Korea, Russia, China and the UAE) have offered assistance to the United States. Further, NATO and the Organization of American States have also offered aid.

Australia's government has sent $2.6 million to the Red Cross, and even Sri Lanka, itself still shaking from last year's tsunami, scraped up and sent $25,000. In an ironic twist, El Salvador has offered troops to help police the streets of New Orleans, and even Venezuela (whose President has no cause to love us) has pledged food, fuel and water.

We thank you.
