I simply cannot form one coherent thought right now. I can't articulate my feelings very well, and it's a constant battle. I know it would prove to be quite therapeutic if I could put it all out there; I just don't have the energy. Like Barefoot, I too am exhausted. I'm grateful for the post she wrote, please take a moment to read it. I'm grateful for the sacrifice and effort she continues to put forth, and I'm grateful for my family and friends around the world who are supporting me with their thoughts and prayers. If any of you missed the Shelter From the Storm Benefit Concert last night, you can watch part of it here. (The first song is "Louisiana"...it will stick with me forever.)
RANDY NEWMAN Song Lyrics
(From the album "GOOD OLD BOYS")
What has happened down here is the wind have changed. Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain. Rained real hard and rained for a real long time. Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline. The river rose all day. The river rose all night. Some people got lost in the flood. Some people got away alright. The river have busted through clear down to Plaquemines. Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline.
Louisiana, Louisiana. They're tyrin' to wash us away. They're tryin' to wash us away. Louisiana, Louisiana. They're tryin' to wash us away. They're tryin' to wash us away.
President Coolidge came down in a railroad train. With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand. The President say, "Little fat man isn't it a shame what the river has done To this poor crackers land."
In humble remembrance...
In the flooded city, hundreds of New York firefighters who battled the conflagrations in their city four years ago, attended an outdoor Catholic mass in New Orleans. Michael Weinlein, assistant chief of operations for the New York fire department, said: "We worked side by side as we dug through the rubble of the World Trade Center. We have come to repay that debt."
