Thinking of you also, Katie and Rick. As you know, this time of year is my bad time, too. Although it's hard, this Katrina disaster also puts me in my place when I start feeling sorry for myself.

You have such a huge heart, Katie -- and you totally honor your dad with your determination to help the refugees. It IS so gosh darn frustrating. I have so many clothes, and household STUFF that those people need desperately, but no way to get it to them. You're close enough to take some of your stuff to the refugee centers and that's great that you want to and will. It's sad that in emergencies we can't get stuff distributed fast enough. I understand the shipping problems, etc. but darn it, there's gotta be a better way.

I will take my stuff to the Salvation Army here - and they usually do find a way to ship to disaster areas, but it takes so long. I saw on TV that Sacramento has sent their search and rescue team, and troops have been deployed from Travis air base and Mather.

I agree with the others, Katie -- take your time and figure out the best and safest way to help -- we need our Brown family safe!

Thank you for remembering me during this time.

Glo- I know yesterday must have been a hard day for you. Please know that I keep you in my prayers and I am always here for you. I don't think it gets easier at all, but you learn how to live with your new reality better as time goes on.

Eileen, thanks for this post and thank you for your friendship.

Rick, me and Kennedy spent the day at the Reunion Arena distributing tons of clothes and baby items. Just doing that made me feel like I was helping in some small way. There are tens of thousands of people here in Dallas and it is just so unbelievable. I told Rick that we were watching a little crumb of history first-hand.

We did see a mile long line of cars driving in to the arena with car loads of donations and there were so many volunteers. It was really heartwarming.

We just did what we could. We know it isn't much, but it was something at least.

I am kind of glad that my dad isn't here to witness such a horrible disaster- but then again, I wish so badly that he was here to hug me and tell me things will be ok.
