I’ve received the following comment in the post about Hurricane Katrina today, I don’t know whether its legit or not, but I can say one thing, the images of the bloke (I believe from CNN) who spoke about how his wife had been swept away, and before she was lost told him to look after the kids and the grandkids is the sort of thing that would bring the tear to the eye of anyone. It makes you appreciate how lucky you are to be safe and well.
