One year ago today!



One year ago today my town was virtually destroyed. Of course, most of the people were evacuated after having learned the lesson from Katrina. Many of the Katrina evacuees were evacuated to Orange, TX, which is where landfall was. Those poor souls had to evacuate once again. I was in North Louisiana taking care of Mom, who was recovering from triple bypass. Fortunately, my home was spared, but it was easy to make the decision to move closer to my parents. None of my friends were spared. Everyone had damage. I am now happily planted out of harm's way.

I am so SICK to death of people just remembering New Orleans. Yes, Katrina was DEVASTATING, but Rita went through our hometown and destroyed it. I wish the media would be more sensitive to the smaller towns that were damaged too. Think of how the people in Mississippi must feel! Ok,....I'll get off my soapbox. :)
Love you!

I agree with you completely, but then I guess we agree on practically everything!
