Yes, absolutely. Andy lost a tennis match, his and everyone else's lives will go on. I have been so busy with my stuff for school that I haven't even paid that much attention to this tragedy but what little I have heard is numbing. I went to New Orleands several years ago and I remember on our way from the airport the cab driver told us all these things about it being below sea level and whatnot. Truly truly devestating and there's not a whole lot to say.... it surely puts everything in perspective and makes me feel silly when I sit here and stress about some footnotes in an article and a cute boy I want to like me, lol.
Most Americans have this way of supporting and lifting each other during times of crisis, I'm sure this will be no different. One of my best friends is starting a 1-year stint with the Americacorps emergency response team, tomorrow.... I bet his first thing will be to go to that area right after his training.
I don't know that the Andy forum has any or many regulars from that area but if we do or if we have lurkers or something from that region and they're somehow able to read this, a big huge
to them and assurance that somehow, it'll be ok.
