Hurricane Katrina

I'm sad.

Why do these things happen? I don't understand. I am glad to learn that the survivors are at last getting the help they so urgently require. But the loss of life, and the violence, and the ... I don't understand.

Got home tonight from dinner with friends to a voice mail message with bad news. Feeling down about that too. Too much pain and suffering in the world. I guess if it were all sunshine and rainbows, we wouldn't appreciate the sunshine and rainbows when we see them. The bad stuff is what makes us appreciate the good stuff, I suppose.

I just really wish there didn't have to be bad stuff.

It makes me really mad at Bush. He hasn't shown leadership and he hasn't gotten people the help they needed soon enough.

Give me a call if you want to talk. I brought the phone downstairs so it won't wake up the punks. I'll probably be up till 11.
