New Orleans

[written Monday morning]

Right now as I write this New Orleans is being buffeted by by one of the most spectacular displays of fury nature can concoct. To see one of America’s jewels; a favorite little sister going through so much pain is difficult. The damage in the wake of Katrina will be great. However; what I have learned after watching hurricanes streak sideways through the atmosphere in Houston; and after seeing America unite to help New York and D.C. – is that New Orleans will heal.

If she listens carefully in the minutes following the storms raging, she will here a second wave approaching fast and hard – that wave is the volunteers, the aid and the love of her extended family; and it will crash down upon her with greater fury than the wave of destruction which preceeded it.

Stay strong, our prayers, condolances, and support are with you!
