A reminder of generosity and recovery time

A front page story in today's Valley News Dispatch had good news about a grant from the Alcoa Foundation to four local agencies to help people who are still recovering from last year's Hurricane Ivan.

It was very positive to see the example of generosity set by the Alcoa Foundation as well as the trust placed in the Allegheny Valley Association of Churches.

On the other hand, the fact that survivors of Hurricane Ivan are still working to solve the problems caused by the local flooding should tell us something very significant about how long the recovery from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma might take.
