The World Responds

Offers of help and condolences are coming in, now that the true scope of this thing has become apparent. Some of the most touching offers are coming from countries like Sri Lanka and the Dominican Republic, who themselves can probably ill afford to provide financial help, but are offering anyway because they know what it's like to face such complete devastation.

I'm trying not to think about the criticisms coming from certain quarters, claims that we had it coming because of our policies on global warming. I'm really trying not to think about it.

I'm trying not to think about the people who are celebrating and hailing "Private Katrina", those who say that a natural disaster took part in their jihad.

That would just make it easy to get bitter and vengeful. Too easy.

Remembering instead the well wishes of good and caring people around the world.

Thanks world.
