Say prayers for them; and if there is anything you can do, act….
In less than a week, the most devasting flooding in decades has overtaken the beloved city of my youth. And I have seen hardly a news report about it. Thousands will lose their homes, their memories, yet will be thankful to be left with their families alive, filled with gratitude for their friends and a new tomorrow to rebuild from the rubble. While I live away from home now, my heart aches for family and friends there who struggle with the truth staring them in the face. And I wonder where the compassion of the world at large has disappeared to. Is the apathy because this storm bore no name to fame it? Now being labeled a worse disaster than hurricane Katrina, the cruel hand of devastation has once more left its fingerprint on the Southland. Pray for Louisiana. Pray for its humanity.
