THE HURRICANE CHRONICLES ... SANDY EDITION


It seems like Hurricane Isaac passed through here ages ago ... and yet the people affected most deeply are still digging their way back to normalcy.

Remember the events that led up to her pounding of New Orleans and Louisiana with hurricane-force winds for an astounding 36 hours?

The media and liberal snarkmeisters were laughing it up and hoping it tore apart the Republican Convention in Tampa, Florida with some low-lifes actually wishing death and destruction on "evil" converatives and Republicans.

At that time I tweeted to remember this when a disaster occurred in a "liberal" city or area.
Karma's a bad mother.

Sure enough, Isaac turned and headed in a bee-line toward the heavily-Democrat Crescent City. Then it wasn't so funny.

So now we have a terrible storm like Sandy tearing up the Atlantic Coast and especially New Jersey and New York City - the CENTER of media in this country who are in prime position to report what is happening there.

I survived Katrina ... and Rita .. and Gustav ... and Isaac ... and I can't remember how many major storms before, in between, and probably after. It's not fun. It took me well over a year to get my life back to some semblance of normalcy after Katrina ... a process I recorded to some extent in this journal back in 2005-2006.

I empathize and sympathize with the people affected by Sandy.

Lessons come hard. Indeed, they are rarely learned correctly or remembered.

I am lucky. I had good parents to help show me how to act and behave, and generations of ancestors in Louisiana and North America who set the stage for who I am dating back to the mid 1700's and probably centuries before that through my Native American ancestor.

Which is why it hits me particularly hard to see and hear people with such a destructive agenda affecting and influencing people, how the act and think and behave ... and most importantly, what they believe.

The bottom line ... learn to think on your own and take care of yourself first ... then, when things bad happen, count heads among your family, friends, and acquaintances and see who needs your help.

It's the right thing to do ... and you'll feel good about it.

And, as a dear friend of mine always used to say, try to "act right".
