I'm not sure what I was more worried about before the hurricane hit - the actual damage or the usual feeling that peopel have that the media is overexaggerating the storm and few preparations would be made. The whole thing just screams tragedy at me and there is so very little I can do about it. I can (and have) donate money, but I can't go help out. That hurts, I wish I was close enough that I could but of course that would mean I'd probably be in a position of needing help rather than giving it.


Thank you for this post. You've articulated a lot of what I've been thinking but have been too emotional to talk about coherently. I haven't posted at all about it because when I try I get all torn up.

Couldn't have said it better myself.


your blog = you post whatever you want. :)

you're right though -- it is shameful as to what has happened. the gov't actually cut funding to the army coe project that would have strengthened the levies. i have a feeling that politicians will pay for this in 2006.


It's interesting how differently people in "Hurricane States" view Katrina as opposed to people who've never had any sort of disaster anything like a hurricane. We seem to know how the system is supposed to work. Thanks for the post!


I had to take a step away from watching the newscasts this weekend. I was alternating between feeling numb and achingly sad and angry. The people who have been shown shooting at rescue workers, and the stories of rape are just stunning to me as well. All so needless. Much like after 9/11 I feel helpless to really help, but I've donated what I can to try to help in what way I can.
