|I read this before, but my comment seems to have not gone through. This is a powerful write, Lisa. Now we have Rita hunkering down upon your gulf. My prayers are with you and all who are within her path. Your compassion and strength shine through in this excellent write.

|It really is horrible what the people in Louisiana and Mississippi are going through. They have a long road ahead of them, and we need to work a lot smarter if we want to save as many lives as possible now. ~ Sara|

there is so much in our nation and i am sure many others.
Your expression makes what's needed known and reminds all who need
it that the South-land is in necessity and we all need stay with our
fellow mankind,...for as long as it takes and not let them suffer alone and un-aided. these writings are so much necessary. Thanks for sharing this.

|Lisa, it’s such a shame that our federal government “knowing” that anything that resembled even a category 3 hurricane would pummel the “Gulf Coast region” would have the nerve to cut the funding necessary to shore up all the manmade levees, especially those that surrounded the great City of New Orleans. Not to mention, all the other beautiful resort coastal areas where this powerful hurricane roared across the southern states of our great nation. This horrific storm has and will continue to cause undo hardship on far too many people of this great nation caused by the Washington political “knuckleheads,” inability to act before this happened and who continue to put their heads in the sand. I believe we will eventually recover from this horrific disaster, but the human toll and monetary costs should have never been absorbed in the first place. Excellent work. Thanks for sharing. Take good care and be well.|

Expressed with your usual flair, the emotional aspect brought into the center of the poem. And the title is so appropriate. Good work.
I've missed reading you.

|Hiss on Andy. (Misspelled on purpose.) Yours would be the first poem I commented on, my thought process has been jumbled. But you have helped bring me back into the fold, so to speak. Powerful!|
