This entry is hard to write because I don’t know what to say. I went home yesterday, to the devastate and destroyed Gulf Coast of Mississippi. I can’t begin to tell how horrible it is. So very very very many people lost everything, their homes, their possessions, their lives even.
I know New Orleans is in the media spotlight. People in Mississippi are barely getting anything they need. Red Cross along with local communities are keeping people alive. I don’t know. It’s upsetting. Extremely upsetting. I can’t sleep at night because of my heartache. Even a friend’s parents have no where to go. I’m sure a lot of people I know & knew have no home now. I feel guilty that we only lost the beach house. A house that was used for fun and not necessity.
Today they told us our water was now safe to drink. I can’t work. I probably won’t get to work before I move. I’m losing a month’s of pay. For a girl that lives paycheck to paycheck, that’s very bad.
I know so very very very many people in Mississippi have lost their jobs because the place they work at has vanished. Wiped clean by the storm surge.
I don’t know when I’ll blog next. It’s hard to focus my thoughts. I might not blog till after our move in late September. Then again, maybe I’ll blog tomorrow. Why is it so hard to do this now? I don’t even want to publish this entry.
Thank you to everyone for the well wishes. It really helps get me through the day.
The central office for the postal service was destroyed. The mailing system is pretty messed up right now. I’ll be sending/emailing my new address out and we move on the 18th. If you send something between now and then there’s no guarantee that I’ll receive it. We seem to be getting some mail that was already in the area, but not others such as packages. So be wary of things you might send me ^^;;. THANK YOU AND SORRY!
PS: I just got your letter Lorik!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! It really cheered me up which is something I’m not getting to do lately. My God you are so talented!!! The watercolor is beautiful :love:
PPS: I thought I’d upload at least one photo. This is a photo of the apartment next to ours in our complex. During the storm we felt a huge “BOOM” and saw sheet rock & insulation flying at our window. We feared it was our building, however, it was the 6 feet awayr. photo.
INFORMATION ON THE MS GULF COAST. Including video. This is the station during all hurricanes. They stay on for the entire hurricane period. This is the longest they’ve ever been on in history. Going 9 days strong 24/7!
