Katrina Won't Be Kind

I'm getting the same feeling watching Katrina bear down on New Orleans that I got when the planes came ripping through the Twin Towers on September 11th--unmitigated helplessness. That news brought me to my knees. The horror fresh in my memory still.

This Hurricane...words fail me. The damage to the Florida pan-handle still overwhelms many residents. I saw it myself. My husband helped a man re-build his house walking in foot-deep sludge and retrieving the neighbor-children's toys. Boats strewn hundreds of yards from water like little pieces of wood. Houses gone. Streets gone. Lines for food. People hiking five miles to get to their homes.
