Well today, kind friends is the one year anniversary of the fifth deadlist hurricane in the history of weather. That hurricane was Katrina. She hit New Orleans at 5:46 am on this day last year with a fury that the poor city simply could never have imagined. The thousands of victims: those killed, injured or left homeless was one of the worst scenarios ever witnessed. Even today, it is not easy for "The Big Easy". There are still those without homes or shelters . Even the mighty Superdome is just now becoming what it once was as developers rush to prepare it for the opening home game of the New Orleans Saints. My paryers are out to those who are still waiting to have their life back. What a sad commentary. So for all of us who complain about our lives turned around and being sad, I am reminded what my dear mother, Virginia used to tell us kids "I complained because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet!" And while this is the anniversary of a great day of destruiction, tragedy and sadness, it is also the anniversary of the end of Communisim in Russia in 1991. Fifteen years ago today. Amazing-- something so evil and so powerful simply fades away . Well another hot day here over one hundred degrees, but not much else happening. Bye for now!
