Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

This tour to Louisiana to Cameron Parish after Hurricane Rita made for the worst Christmas in my life. We left Cameron Parish enroute home on the 20th of December if I remember right. I remember sitting on the couch after I got home and just crying because we had so much for Christmas and these folks had so little. Wanna talk about goin' home - they didn't have a home to go home to - and most of them still don't.

This photo is of the remains of hundreds of homes. I tried to upload a power point of the incident but don't have the skills to do that I guess.
