Turning Points

September 11 2001 was a turning point in the history of our country. We can all remember how life was before 9/11 and how our lives were suddenly transformed without warning. I believe this is how profoundly Katrina has effected our lives at least in Louisiana and Mississippi. We are not simply facing a time of inconvenience, we are facing months and maybe years where things are altered. Right now my wife and I are trying to consider where we are going to set up our lives temporarily. This is so hard to fathom. I guess we all expected that as soon as the hurricane passed things would slowly start to improve, however it seems like the situation is only getting worse back at home. It reminds me of seens from movies - refugees everywhere huddling together trying to find shade from the sun, no water, no food, desparate for help. The whole thing seems so surreal.

That's all for now.

Hurricane Update

Wow. I'm still in shock as I finally get to see some of the images coming out from the Hurricane damage. My family and I road out the storm at Micah's (bass player) House near Baton rouge. But after more than 24 hours without power we headed to crash with some friends in Houston. This is truley a huge disaster. I am just in awe. I am thankful that my wife and kids are with me and safe. We will find out about our home next week. I'll try to post some photos in a few days.
