I AM GLAD THAT SOME RELIEF WAS OFFERED FOR PEOPLE THAT NEEDED HELP, BUT THE SYSTEM THEY USED WAS TERRIBLE PEOPLE STANDING IN LINE FOR UP TO 12 HRS. AND THE MAJORITY WERE THERE JUST TRYING TO GET FREE STAMPS AND DIDN'T HAVE ANY DAMAGE.PEOPLE WERE TREATED WITHOUT DIGNITY OR RESPECT.HOPEFULLY THEY WILL DEVISE ANOTHER WAY NEXT TIME . I KNOW PEOPLE WHO HAD TO LEAVE BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T STAND OUTSIDE THAT MANY HRS.I AM GLAD THE GOVERNMENT TRIED TO OFFER SOME ASSIST, BUT DO WE HAVE TO DE-HUMANIZE PEOPLE IN THE PROCESS, THEY HAVE SUFFERED ENOUGH LOSS, WITHOUT LOSING THEIR SELF RESPECT ALSO....JUST MY OPINION
