I have sat glued to the television watching the devastation from the hurricane. The situation in New Orleans and along the Gulf coast is unbelievable. I've tried to imagine what it must be like to have to abandon your home and all the things that matter so much, pictures, grandmother's silver, art, mementos from the children, the table your father made in woodshop....not that they are more important than life but these kinds of things are touchstones in our lives. Now they are gone. Jobs....gone. Houses.....gone. Loved ones.....lost.

How will they ever put their lives back together again?
