Watching the devastation left behind by Hurricane Katrina just broke my heart. Having weathered a category five hurricane myself over 10 years ago in Hawaii, I know that this will be a long road for the folks in New Orleans as well as along coast of Louisiana itself, Alabama and Mississippi. The human spirit is unbreakable and no matter what happens to the folks in this country, so many people are quick to step up to help. I saw how wonderful the world was to us on Kauai after Iniki in 1992. Now people have already banded together here to help out our neighbors to the far south. It will be a long road to recovery but they will recover and thrive again.
