i feel sad today...


... i can't bring myself to watch tv news on what is going on in new orleans. so many people who from all walks of life have lost so much - it makes me think about those people that used to be in my life that i used to know from NO and i wonder how they are.

one of my good friends from college is from NO and her parents lived there. i haven't been in touch with my friend for a while but while we were close, i had been to their house in NO. i had seen where she went to school. i had met her family. and i think about them today as i think about everyone else.

funny how in one instance mother nature can remind you that the things you physically have on this earth can be taken away in 1 instant.

and in the end we are all the same - just people. even listening to NPR today, i got upset b/c i heard a man just sound so terrified b/c he had lost everything. and you could hear how lost he felt. how do you take that away for a million people?

but the point is not to be selfish - give what you can to those in need b/c you never know when you could be the one needing next. so my DH and i tonight will sit down and look at our budget and decide how much we are able to give.

did you know according to the salvation army website that "A $100 donation to The Salvation Army will feed a family of four for two days, provide two cases of drinking water and one household clean-up kit, containing brooms, mops, buckets, and cleaning supplies"?.

I don't bother reading many blogs but I really like your's. Well done on adding something good to the rubbish that usually fills blogs.

My site is on best acne cures related goodies. It pretty much covers most best acne cures subjects.

If you get time, pop in and have a look

Thanks

Caroline - the utter devastation is almost too much to comprehend. I agree with you that the sound of hopelessness is heard everywhere in NO right now... and it is all just so sad
