At the risk of sounding terribly self-centered, I'm bone-wearingly tired right now. Katrina's aftermath is horrific enough, from the damage to the looters. The war in Iraq (am I the only one bothered by the president being able to declare war, despite what the Constitution says to the contrary?) continues. Quite honestly, I don't think the administration or the congress know what to do about either, politics aside.
Now, though, we get the two tragedies combined, as the analysts worry about the over-extention of National Guard troops and the possibility of keeping troops in the South for many months. I cannot wrap my understanding around what will happen to the thousands of displaced people without a place to go and understand why the mayor of Dallas feels the same way.
I'm clinging to faith that God has all of this in hand.
