I'm Going Insane

"In Hancock County alone, Sheriff Eddie Jennings put the death toll at 85, with 60 people dead in Pearlington, 22 in Waveland, two in Bay St. Louis and one body that had washed up on the beach."

My mom's place is in Pearlington. Population 1600.

I need to go I'm torn in pieces. The hardest thing you can ask a white trash boy to do is sit still while his momma's missing.

I haven't lost a loved one but I do know what it's like to miss New Orleans. I went to Tulane and all of the most favorite memories of my life were washed away. It's an unbearable loss.

It's absolutely wrenching. All of it. I hope... well, I hope she's okay. And you, too.

Gosh, there isn't much I can say that could possibly put ease on your mind, I can only hope that everything will turn out well for you.

I wish there was something I could do,
other than just sending cash. My thoughts go out to you, your Mom, your family and friends. God speed,
my friend.

can you go? is the gov. forbidding citizens from entering the area? how would you do it, no facilities or food/water? maybe rent an RV in GA or AK?

i would be the same- is it better to do nothing but wait, driving me out of my mind, or do something that might be useless or counterproductive but at least pro-active?

my out-law relatives in the Vicksburg, MS area are w/o power but have a generator for the bare necessities....
