Connected in Sorrow

The horror of the devastatation on the Gulf coast and in New Orleans is astounding - loss of a magnitude that is beyond comprehension. Watching the television and crying - making a donation and feeling powerless to do more.

We sway through our lives - "being in control" Once again, the Universe says, "ha!" Choices we make - people trapped in the Superdome because it was the "end of the month" and they didn't have money left for gas OR their autos were such rattle traps that they couldn't trust them to take them out of harm's way.

We are all inextricably connected. Round and round and round in the circle game.
