Anniversary

I've had Katrina on my mind a lot lately -- I can't believe it's been a whole year, and there is still so very, very much to do. I know that I ought to do an update post on the familial status there, but I'm honestly just not up to it right now. Nothing is wrong, per se, but there is so much that is not right.

If you're minded to honor the anniversary in some fashion, see the comments to this post. And if you have your own story to tell, give the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank a visit.

That's all I can manage right now -- the memories are crowding, but a memorial post seemed in order.

Oh! And should there be any philanthropists among readers here with an interest, the fight to save Newcomb College, the nation's first coordinate college for women in the US and one of Katrina's victims, is ongoing and the legal fund is in great need of help. Visit the Newcomb Lives website for more information or to make a donation.

I just wrote a response, but it was a downer. Instead I'm going to focus on the good of all the volunteers like you who are trying to restore and revitalize the affected areas.

Nods. There's an awful lot to be downer about. *hugs you* You've been there all along, and kept my spirits up more than once.

[hugs you]

Also, private message to come -- but will you be in Atlanta October 7-8?

I *think* that I will! That's roundabout birthday weekend in these parts, and Yom Kippur will be past already -- that's a pretty good weekend I think.

*hugs again*
