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.

Chris: I'm trying to get in touch with my brother John (Irion), and don't have any contact info for Laurie's sister in Clarksville TX. John's cell phone isn't working because of Katrina. Can you help me? By the way, I enjoyed your cd "move"; your mom sent it to me a few weeks ago!
