Ann,

I completely understand your emotions. In fact, feeling shellshocked is a common among people who have suffered great losses in a disaster, or even those who have just witnessed it. Be prepared to see those who have lost so much go through some very intense, and often unpleasant, emotions. It is very difficult.

The churches in my city, the shelters, even old closed retirement homes are filling to capacity with the homeless from New Orleans. We are wiping out the local supplies of flip-flops at Walmart to give them some foot coverings, and donations of food and clothing are pouring in. So too are job offers. A lot of these people will end up staying here, absorbed into the Texas communities that gave them refuge. It will be a long time before New Orleans is inhabitable and has jobs to offer.

I'm glad you got your power back on. I hope you get your life back to something like normal soon.

Catherine
