Great News!!!!

I called my mother yesterday to ask about the remaining family members that I haven't heard from since Katrina. Well, everyone is well and accounted for. I am currently counting my blessings many times since EVERYONE made it out alive. We are one lucky family for that to have happened.

Of course, there is that air of sorrow that the city that was once known for Mardi Gras, the French Quarter and its casinos now has been changed into one of anarchy and water. My prayers go out to those that are still in the city waiting for help and those that have missing family members that they still haven't found.

My biggest hope of all is that the world doesn't think that black people are savages. Despite the scenes of looting and shootings and such, we are not all savages. Most people are just trying to get the necessary items while a greedy few are the ones looking for Jewelry, Televisions, and video game systems. Just remember that the media tends to slant things quite a bit. I know who I am and I know who my race is, we are just like any other human out there. Besides, people of other races would do the same thing if there was no acting government in the city to punish them and stores remained uninhabited.
