Good can come from the worst of circumstances. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt met a woman today whose experience as an evacuee has renewed her faith in people.
They do the paperwork. They bring the food, the water. They stand there with smiling faces waiting to serve. They are the volunteers running the Red Cross Shelter at the Lake Charles Civic Center and right now they're making an awful time more bearable for Ruvella Casmere from New Orleans. "It's like a little piece of heaven. I've never seen deputy sheriffs and firemen. They all got wings," says Casmere. "These people have treated us so good. And they've been so nice. Anything you want, if you tell them you want it. They try to give it to you. If I were at home I would not get this kind of service. If I were in a hotel I wouldn't get this kind of service."
For Casmere the kindness and caring has renewed her faith in people. "I just never knew people were so sweet, so loving," says Casmere. "Because every time you see on the news it's bad, it's bad, it's bad, it's bad. And then you get to thinking, well, there's just no good. No it's not. No, they got people in this world got a heart as big as Texas."
These angels, as Casmere calls them, are a sign of hope -- a signal that they can bounce back. "I never seen such love, such help, never. I'm 62 years old and I'm full. I just don't know how to say thank you. I really don't. And we most probably don't have anything at home. But as long as I live, I will never forget you all."
