Cherish Earth’s Wetlands (Jul 2008, Vol. 17, No. 3)
Katrina. The word makes me shudder, makes my heart race in fear and rage. I don’t remember a lot about the hurricane that day … just fear, confusion, and hopelessness. After reaching safety through the love and compassion of so many friends and strangers, rage began to consume me as I learned of the horrendous toll on human lives and God’s creation, some of which could have been prevented. There are many questions we hadn’t seriously considered before then. I hope we do now.
