If you did not see Oprah Winfrey's show today, I implore you to try to watch a late-night rerun if you possibly can. She is reporting from the areas hit by Katrina, starting in New Orleans. This is without a doubt the most unsanitized, clear, honest reporting I have seen on the disaster. You'll see things that will make you sick beyond words, and you won't be able to stop crying.
She continues tomorrow with a report from Mississippi. Tape it if you must. But watch it.
Striking to me was the cry of the people for prayers and ministers and for the songs of the faith. Their faith in God remains strong, and we must support that at every opportunity. Send money, send the items asked for by relief groups, send food and water.
Pray without ceasing.
