Yesterday, hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, I pray for family and friends who live there. I pray for all who have lost everything and must start over. I pray for the people who have lost loved ones and must go on.
I do what I can do...I pray.
I heard a reporter say that during the night she heard people yelling and screaming for help, calling out for someone, anyone to come and rescue them. She cried as she reported and remembered the night and the helplessness that covered her as she heard the screams.Rescuers Search For Katrina Survivors Along Gulf Coast
I tracked the storm from it's birth to today while it affects our weather in Ohio.
This hurricane was and continues to be a monster!
I can't help but compare Hurricane Katrina to Alzheimer's disease.
People like Peggy, knew that the storm was coming but there was no way to be protected from the wrath of the storm.
There was no where to run and no where to hide.
Peggy is living proof of what the Alzheimer's hurricane can do to a life.
Peggy has stopped yelling for someone, anyone to come and rescue her. I can relate to the reporter who heard the cries for help last night and could do nothing but stay where she was and cry.
I had to stand by and watch Peggy disappear while she called out for help. Now, her voice is silent. No one can help her now. No one can rescue her.
Peggy is lost in the storm.
She is a statistic, lost in the Hurricane called....
