Several weeks ago, I wrote a blog regarding Earthquake Preparedness (EP). After posting my EP blog, I went to the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce (PCC) Monthly Board of Directors Meeting. At the meeting, I sat next to my fellow PCC Board Director Ben Green, CEO of the American Red Cross San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter. Ben logged onto his iPad and showed me my EP blog he was about to read. He pointed out to me I had placed a picture of an American Red Cross Rescue Ship in my EP blog post. I told him how much I admired the work the American Red Cross conducts on behalf of communities and individuals whenever disasters occur. Our conversation gave me the idea to write a series of blogs regarding the American Red Cross responsiveness and their invaluable benevolence to the world.
A few weeks later, Ben and I met and spoke about Motown Records (the music company where I began my entertainment industry career), our families, our work and the American Red Cross importance in times of disasters. I will scribe those blogs beginning next week in politeness to the citizens who are currently affected by Hurricane Sandy.
As I observed The United States of America’s Federal Government responsiveness and attentiveness helping the State Governments who were affected by Hurricane Sandy’s destructiveness, I wonder how serious are the individuals who clamored “get government out of our lives.”
