I just want to say thank you to all of you out there. It does not need to be said that so many facets of this Katrina disaster are unspeakably horrible. However, I've never so aware of the essential goodness and decency of so many people. All of you, everyone, friends, family, folks who I only know through this little bloggy window, all of you have been wonderful. From offers of places to say to kind words to dorky jokes, a sweet comment, a phone call, or an email - it means more than you probably realize. Never in my life have I been so aware of the value of the people in my life. Again, thank you.
