“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

I missed my Katrina Anniversary post Friday.  Rest assured I did not forget.

As Gustav bears down on the city I left, I find myself with too many thoughts and too few words to express them.  As I watch my friends leave again, some with babies in arms, and face the same return that I made three years ago, my heart aches for them.  Unlike the leave-taking we had, they have the visions of three years past in their minds as they lock their doors.

We watch.  We wait.  We call and offer what we can.  And we pray.

    Robbin, my prayers are added to yours for all those who will have to deal with this storm. Being in Florida, I have been very afraid, particularly during the 2004 hurricane season, when it looked like hurricanes were heading right for us but that is almost an innocent fear. I can’t imagine what it must be like for those who have already been through it before and know what they will be facing.

    With you, I watch. I wait. I pray.

    I can’t even begin to imagine all the memories that this is stirring up for you — and them. My heart hurts for all of you — and you’re all in my prayers.
