Talk about a reality check

I have been doing a lot of thinking about the hurricane and all of the people whose lives have been effected directly and indirectly. The amusing part or sad part should I say is hearing people complaining about gas prices going up and the inconvenience it is, which in light of all the loss the others have suffered. Even my life and the wrangling that I have had over my life in the past bit has been put into perspective. I can't imagine everything that you have ever known being wiped out. I am saddened as I am sure you are to in the acts of rage some of which may be excusable given the circumstances but others seem to be very deliberate. I am proud of the efforts of mankind to reach out to these who have suffered so much. A bunch of local churches in the area are organizing to go down and help rebuild, taking supplies that are needed. My heart and prayers go out to all those who were affected. I am looking forward to reaching out and helping in any way I can. It is in times when I do stuff for others that I feel closest to God and the best about myself. There really is nothing better than helping out others even when we ourselves need help.
