I can't believe what is happening in New Orleans. I know it is below sea level and that it was bound to happen, but watching this town fall to pieces just kills me. I have watched countless news stories about hurricanes and the destruction they have caused elsewhere, but not somewhere I have lived. I love this town. The photos of buildings and neighborhoods destroyed, streets I have walked down filled with water, and all of the people, who used to be my people, scrambling to survive. I wish there was something I could do.
