I'm tipsy. I'm scared, hurt...just heartbroken, and I've had a few glasses of wine as I watch the news again tonight. How else do you cope with this...with something on this cale?

I honestly wasn't aware of the pain...the horror...the NON-help that was occurring in New Orleans until right after it got "fixed"...b/c we had no power and no cable. Looking back now, it is.... Well, there are no words.

I want to thank you all - b/c I know it is very hard for any of us to contribute money or homes or whatever...we're all strapped for cash, who the hell isn't?....but I just want you to know that I so sincerely thank all of you for everything you are doing - even if all you can do is pray.

What I'm feeling now is impossible to describe. To see so many places I have visited all my life, and places I love reduced to rubble and chaos is incomprehensible. There is a huge part of me that feels SO guilty for being "okay". Isn't that silly? But I lived in New Orleans for a time, and I've loved her all my life. I've vacationed in Biloxi and Gulfport...and these places are either gone or changed forever. And, still, I have NO reason to pain at losing places close to my heart is NOTHING compared to those that have lost their homes/families...well, everything.

I don't have a point to this...I'm just heartbroken, but I wanted all of you to know that I love you and I appreciate your concern, your help, your thoughtfulness...all of it.

Let us all hope and pray that we never see a disaster and such destruction as we have seen here in the past week, again in our lifetimes.

Thanks, AGAIN and many countless times over, to all of you for your help, prayers and good thoughts.
