[All, I have been starting to see messages like this coming up on the Anglican blogs -- people who have lost everything except a few things they had with them, their family and their lives, and I thought you should see them. And yet... it's nothing new. LibreOuMort reminds me that her family lost everything in a warehouse fire when returning to the States from abroad; like these, their worldly possessions were suddenly reduced to what they were wearing and carrying in their suitcases. --sionnsar]
Thank God! Charles Leggett, Stand Firm Mississippi's treasurer and a damn good man, is safe. I just received this email from him:
We have escaped the Gulf Coast and are now in a small vacation home at Henderson LA. I did save my computer and have set up an AOL account.
Ann, her mother, Maudrine, and my daughter, Demi, and myself arrived here last night. We now have water, air conditioning and a place to rest, Thank God for friends with extra homes, and this gift.
Ann, Maudrine, and I rode out the storm in a condo at Diamondhead where we escaped the high water and were somewhat safe. Demi waited too long to leave her apartment and couldn't get out. She was in one of the apartment houses on the beach. She escaped with her life and her poodle dog. When her building started coming a part, somehow she managed to grab her dog and get to another building, where she was rescued and taken to a shelter. After a three day search we finally found her at one of her friend's home close to the shelter.
Our homes and contents are totally destroyed. We only have overnight clothing, but we are blessed, because we can buy more clothes and other things. There are many on the coast who have nothing except the aid that had arrived. Please help them if you can. We thank God for our lives and for our daughter and for bringing us safely to Henderson, La.
God bless you all.
Good news for Charlie and his family.
