Anderson Cooper | BIO
Program Note: See the full interview on AC360° tonight at 10pm eastern
Anderson, Thank you for your great reporting and the trip to Nashville. Not enough attention have been given to this disaster. . It is so sad to see all the flooding.
Thank you again for you care and compassion!
ANDERSON COOPER THANK YOU.....THANK YOU....THANK YOU.
I am so glad that you came to see the devistation and most of all thank you for helping to get the word out !!! We seem to have been forgotten. Although we are the volunteer state and take care of our own, I fear the clean up and aftermath will be far too great for all the neighbors that are helping a neighbor. I hope awareness will help others know that we are in desperate need of great help and donations. I am one of the lucky one!!!!!! There are so many others who are not and have nothing but their life and have LOST EVERYTHING. So again I thank you!
Tim rightly pointed out that while we may see the "stars" on the interviews about the flooding that they constitute a small percentage of Nashville's population – the majority of it is the "average Joe/Jane" who live pay check to pay check. They are the ones that will suffer the most; you look at a disaster like this and tell yourself that the community will come back in a few months/years but in the meantime these folks don't have jobs which means no paychecks and bill collectors don't care about anyone's sob story – they won't wait, just like the need for food doesn't wait, or the need for shelter doesn't wait, or the health care for your children doesn't wait – I hope the Obama and his government help these people now....quickly and not at a snail's pace like so much government does.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
