For the second time in three years, the city of New Orleans and her people are facing a catastrophic hurricane.
Many, many people in this region are poor. Many haven't completely repaired their homes from three years ago. Many had just a few possessions left after Katrina, and now they are going to lose those, too.
Most importantly, many people have already been killed by this storm (Americans aren't the only people whose lives matter, FYI. Cuba and Haiti are burying their dead already), and more are sure to die.
This is not a joking matter. This is a tragedy in progress.
Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
