All those hundreds of years ago the people built New Orleans on the highest ground. It is only in relatively recent years that they've expanded the city and built on land that was prone to flooding.

I told my husband the other night that the flooded homes, or even the wind destroyed homes in reality were no different than a home lost in a fire. The bottom line is everything is gone. But life goes on. The people who have a will to survive and have a life will go forward and succeed. Those who lived like cock roaches before the storm will continue to live like cock roaches in the future. I do not mean to ramble on and on. I guess what I am saying is that yes this is a terrible thing that has happened. But life goes on, the sun is still going to rise in the east and set in the west. It is what folks do with their time that counts. If they are hard workers then they will get back to a normal way of life in just a while. Those who loot, kill, rape, and such should do another kind of time. No mercy!
