It is sobering. I have an Aunt and Uncle in Lafayette, who missed the destruction *this* time. I think of anyone who has ever lost family, homes...everything, including the industries large and small, that provided their livlihood, because of the destruction of any of the hurricanes in the last few years...Florida, The Yucatán, Cuba, South Texas, The East coast...or the death and destruction left by the Tsunami last December.
No words...only prayer...and then the instinct to action of "What can I do to help?"
On That note, I share the following info:
Houston news station with list of places to donate
~a volunteer organization that helped supply homeschoolers in the Houston area after they were flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Allison just a few short years ago. Here is a snip of info from them:
"In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, many of you are rushing to send help to our friends in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The recovery and cleanup will be a very long process and there are things that will be needed in the future, but not immediately. This is why I am writing to you today.
Project Noah is a homeschooling ministry that helps homeschooling families in crisis. We only provide curriculum and school supplies to the families that come to us with crisis needs - whether it is because their home has burned,or been flooded, or the primary wage earner has been without workfor an extended period of time, or other similar crisis, we try to help. We have been serving the homeschooling community for almost 5 years now and will continue as long as there are families in need.
If you would like to help us help them in this unique nitch of need, we would be honored.

From Homeschooling Today:
Family Reformation Ministries, a non-profit ministry based in Katy, Texas, announces an outreach to assist displaced homeschooling families affected by Hurricane Katrina. This program will assist families in replacing lost curriculum, clothing, and other necessary supplies. It will also provide food and temporary lodging as needed. Your tax-deductible donation will be a great blessing to our homeschooling friends along the Gulf Coast! As the storm passes, you can help repair the ruins. Can we count on you?
Imagine how your assistance in this effort can glorify God by spreading the truth of the Gospel to an unbelieving community. Prayerfully consider how you might be able to help.
