I never post twice in a day. Hell, it’s enough just to post once a week right now. And I rarely – as in almost never – repost blogs from others. It’s just not something I do, so when I do do it (ha!) , it means a lot.
But THIS. THIS POST needs to be reblogged. It was written by a wonderful friend – NJRay. We met a lifetime or two ago here in Blogland, and she’s one of my all-time favorites – and someone I am very happy to have reconnected with recently as we’re both blogging a bit more these days. I have mad love for this woman.
Hurricane Katrina. It’s hard to believe a decade has passed since that life-changing storm. Much like 9/11, the assassination of JFK, and several huge earthquakes here in So. Cal, I remember exactly where I was, and what I was doing, when Katrina hit.
NJRay posted her own remembrance in a powerful post entitled, “On the Tenth Anniversary of Hope and the Firefly Messengers”. PLEASE go on over and give it a read. Even if you’ve never lived through a hurricane of Biblical proportions, maybe – like me – you’ve found yourself, at some point in time, washed away by sea of hopelessness.
And maybe – like us – Someone threw you a life rope.
Or a firefly.
