I was going to post about Blog Day or my $40 Day #2 Lunch, but I just couldn't get my mind to focus. One of my best friends - my college roommate - is somewhere in New Orleans. I heard from her on Monday evening and she said that there was no flooding in her area and that she was doing well. I let out a sigh in relief. Then things got worse. And worse. And worse.
Media reports do nothing but fuel worry and all I can do is sit anxiously and hope. Laura is the toughest girl I know - no, she is one the toughest people I know, and she will fight for her life no matter what comes her way. But news of looting, chaos, disease, and damage leave me deeply concerned. I found myself flipping through news sources and webpages today in the hopes of running into a picture of Laura holding her head up with her strong steady gaze.
Laura, please be safe.
