Subject: Re: New Orleans
Hello all and especially the Ziners who might live in one of the Southern affected States, or are visiting there at the moment,

It is absolutely heart breaking to see the tragedy caused by the incomprehensible power of nature. Day after day we are shown pictures of the enormous material destruction and inevitably also the human losses. I visited New Orleans 18 years ago and it was one of the most beautiful, relaxed and yet vibrant cities I have been to. To think that most of this now has vanished or has been detroyed is incredible.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
