Feeling uneasy the last few days...ever since Hurricane Katrina blew in and did so much damage on the Gulf Coast. At first, after dire warnings for New Orleans seemed overstated, newspeople were saying New Orleans managed to come off lucky again. Then the water began rising in the city, and stories of horrible conditions in surrounding areas began to be told. You hear of floating bodies being ignored because it's vital that rescue workers concentrate on finding people who are still alive but need help. I'm sure there are people all over with friends and family in the flooded areas that they haven't heard from, who are are having nightmares about their loved ones being dead, undiscovered and unattended. A lot of heartbreak yet to come.
