AMEN

Common Sense means to demand a trailer be placed on sites of the people in need of warmth and safety for their families. Create a positive movement that will give hope that in the spring they can to rebuild while having a place to live in on their property. Just make it happen. Cut the red tape in half and give hope and joy after the horror they lived through. Please do it now. People are cold and suffering. Bring Peace, Warmth, Safety before the holidays as they all would thank you and...

Bring Peace, Warmth, Safety before the holidays as they all would thank you and bring a smile of joy. A new beginning. Please do the Right thing. I live in Southern Vermont and it is really cold. Bless these families with the best gift in their life right now. Please help them.

If they have trailers available bring them to people who are suffering and dealing with losing all they may have possessed.

I just hope you are all successful in your efforts. We have the same problem over here. We give hundreds of thousands of pounds to places like India and China yet we neglect our own, These have enough money to become Nuclear Powers which must have cost millions of pounds to do it, Crazy Politics. The USA and our Govt should look after theirown First and foremost.

Please let's not let the "First Sandy" incident be forgotten so quickly. Please sign the petition to move those FEMA trailers to those in this area who so desperately need it...my prayers and thoughts are with you. May the God of heaven and earth shelter you under His wings and give you comfort and strength to endure. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

Thank you to my FB friends and family who respond to this much needed cause!

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?
