I realize that is is a burden to the families that have been affected by this natural disaster. I sympathize with everyone living there. Dealing with government agencies can be a long and frustrating, time consuming way to get help when you really do need it The winters are harsh and ALL people should have proper housing, and heat. Do you know that freezing to death is a matter of everyday life and death on the reservations in N and S Dakota? There are many Native Americans who live...

I realize that is is a burden to the families that have been affected by this natural disaster. I sympathize with everyone living there. Dealing with government agencies can be a long and frustrating, time consuming way to get help when you really do need it The winters are harsh and ALL people should have proper housing, and heat. Do you know that freezing to death is a matter of everyday life and death on the reservations in N and S Dakota? There are many Native Americans who live with freezing to death every winter, because there is no help for them. YET I do not hear of any mass effort to send any aid to either N or S Dakota. I sincerely hope that this will be a wake up call that people can not survive the winters without proper housing, and heat. Please forgive me for putting the plight of the reservations in this petition, but it needs to be told. Now that there are American citizens that are experiencing cold weather with no heat or modern conveniences, there is a petition. Everyone does not concern themselves with People that live every winter in the harshest weather with poor housing, at best, and no way to heat their houses, if they are lucky enough to have a house to live in,. Most do not even have that luxury. Now that no one reading this can plead ignorance of the life on the reservations, please, while you are sending help to the East Coast, send help to the Dakotas too. Thank you - May Creator send help to all who need it so desperately.
To everyone who says this is not the place to discuss the plight on the reservations, if not here, then where? On the obituary page with a 3 line notice? Or in a govt report that only makes excuses, that no one has access to?

Help our fellow New Yorkers recover from disaster. Don't dilute their allocated funds. Don't ignore Gerritsen Beach - bring in the trailers.

We need to take care of our people FIRST instead of other countries!

If we have the resources just sitting while our own are hurting, there is no discussion, share the resources.

There are many homeless all across the country. We could use some old FMA trailer's all over! Rental costs have skyrocketed and many people are unable to qaulify for home loans. Low income housing is way behind with the current needs of our country. Can someone make this a cause that gets answered?

I don't know if they want a fema trailer...they are pretty disgusting. Make them give people brand new housing instead.
