Katrina's Aftermath

Stunned. Shocked. Saddened. Tragedy, of both human and animal suffering, on a scale unimaginable. Lives, both literally and figuratively, have been eliminated. Scenes of heroism and depravity have occurred. Months, perhaps years, will be required to recover from the devastating effects of the hurricane. And there is so little that we can do to help. A truly humbling and heartrending demonstration that our civilization is, in the face of the power of nature, so remarkably fragile.

Peace.

Mother nature, the scariest thing in existence to me. Unpredictable, unforgiving and absolutely the most powerful force.

These people are in my prayers and thoughts.

It is frustrating to be so helpless. :( Prayers and donations is what they need right now. That is the best thing that anyone can do for the people of New Orleans and everyone else so largely affected by Katrina.
