It appears that the people of New Orleans are going to be spared the worst of Gustav! What wonderful news!! There will still be some flooding but nothing compared to Katrina and the total ineptitude of the government during that disaster. It seems that plans were made and followed and that there will not be a repeat of the disaster. At times it is hard not to get very depressed about the human condition and about our lack of abilities to learn from the past. It seems that maybe this time, lessons were learned and I , for one am very grateful!
Now we must look on to the next storms that are coming our way and continue to be grateful every day for all of the wonderful blessings that we have all around us.
We are our brother's keepers and our sister's keepers and we must never loose sight of the difference that each individual can make to our world!!
"We must put our feet in the right place and stand firm!!" Abraham Lincoln
