I was in a rank and disgusting mood today. I am desperately wanting to hear the news from Louisiana, but not wanting to freak out the kids, this means I can't watch or hear anything. I snuck a news channel on the radio in the car today, but then I realized that Matt was listening and I switched over to music. I always feel so helpless in times like these, and thankful for every safe minute I get to spend not worrying about losing every material possession I have or worse- a member of my family, or beloved friend. What a horrible way to go. When my time comes, I just hope it is so quick that I don't have a chance to be frightened.
We went on line to the American Red Cross, where we always make a contribution after a disaster, but that seems so easy. I know that what they need is money to get the people what they need, but typing in a credit card number from the comfort of my own home doesn't seem like much of an effort. I don't know what else there is to do.
