Yikes, 6-Yr-Old Leads 6 Other KidsTo Shelter

The youngest was 5-months old, but there was a 14-month-old and four 2- and 3-year olds, too. Turns out when the evacuation chopper arrived on the roof of their New Orleans apartment building, the parents were told to put the kids in first, and that another helicopter'd be along for the adults in a few minutes. Didn't happen quite that way, though.

It seems like some news organizations and pundits are hell bent on portraying most people in New Orleans as poor, uneducated masses that care little for each other and life in general. Over the past few days I have heard many stories like this, not all 6 year olds (but who obviously was brought up well) who have given their all in service to their fellow man.

A good read and a heart-wrencher to think of those kids without their parents. Thanks for the link.
