Today is Tuesday. Tomorrow is Wednesday. Yesterday was Wednesday. It's a never ending cycle. Up until Katrina hit. I had just entered the sixth grade and was just getting into the hang of things. It all seemed so normal.
But after Katrina nothing made sense. Tuesday could have been Sunday. Halloween was Easter and you couldn't put it back together. It was like a puzzle, but there was one piece missing, and one that just didn't fit. Now it's starting to come back. But it wasn't that way for a long time. We would almost live outside, only going in to sleep. We would rarely wash cloths. And do the general cleaning, sweeping vacuming dusting the whole deal, less if any.
Even now some people are still living in tents and sleeping on the ground. I can't imagine what it's like just watching. Even when the news shuts off it's still there. Even after you finish reading this blog it will still be there. It will be here for ages.
All the great buildings, memorials, even people lost will never come back. It's gone. Gone is a strong word. It's permanent, you can't turn your back on it, it's always there, or not there, however you want to put it. I guess I'm sounding kind of demented, or not. Probably just crazy. Well, whatever it is. We bless what is there, mourn for what is gone, and welcome in what's new.
