August 29,2005

Our hearts and thoughts are with all of our family and friends in both New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Joe and I grew up there and most of our family still remains in the area. Although our loved ones did not go through the horror we witnessed at the Superdome and surrounding areas, the damage was devastating all the same. We will forever relive the horror of not knowing the safety of so many of them for days. Of many of them having to be physically cut from the debris.
Most of all my heart breaks for New Orleans. I had the privilege of coming of age in that magical city. There will always be a part of me there.
It is a grand place and I know it will be again.

After finally getting to see New Orleans, the tragedy is that much sadder to me. It is a beautiful city.
