There was some footage out of central Florida where a deadly tornado ripped through as people slept. It was sad - all of those people with their homes and all of their belongings strewn about. And elderly gentleman interviewed by the TV crew said that there had been a lot of response and many offers of help to start with the cleanup. People, total strangers, drove to the affected areas and pulled into neighborhoods and just got out of their cars and started helping.
Americans were quick to jump in and help when they could - a lesson this country has learned from Katrina.
