true tragedy

I am so saddened by the pictures and headlines streaming in from the Gulf Coast. It does help put things in perspective. Both husband and I have family there; we know they are all safe. We suspect their homes and possessions are not. It will be a long, hard road with who knows how many setbacks.

There are thousands who are not safe. There are thousands suffering. Truly suffering. It is hard to fathom the extent of the damage to lives and people.

I am so fortunate to sit here in my air-conditioning with running water, food, and a roof over my head.
