Fran Prica, a registered nurse (I'm assuming she's from Columbia because she credits the Boone County Red Cross, but the article didn't say!), headed south today to help with the Katrina relief efforts. We talked in class today about how many people my classmates found that were interested in doing something more for those in need but haven't really done anything besides donated money or clothing. I realize that every effort counts but we have finally found a local that actually acted upon those wishes. It's good to see that. I may sound like a complete hypocrite here but I wish that I could go down there. If I weren't in school (yeah that's what they all say) I know that I would. I am seriously contemplating on going down there with the Newman center's alternative spring break trip. That would be so rewarding! I really liked this article idea. I don't think it was put in the inverted pyramid style but I thought reporter, Megan Perry, did a nice job of making Prica sound like a regular lady. This story, however, sounds nothing like a James Bond movie.
