If you really want to get your brain around the sheer enormity of what’s happening in New Orleans, here’s something that spurred me to donate a few more dollars to the relief fund. These are lists being kept by MSNBC where people are posting requests for information about loved ones that are missing. The sheer number listed already is mind-numbing, but the messages are just gut-wrenching. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to be without any way of communicating with loved ones, to be separated from my newborn without any way of tracking where she’s going, to just being totally and literally in the dark.

Unfortunately, the blogging I want to do is on hold as I am now doing the blogging I need to do to keep my school family together. I have been reading your blogs about New Orleans and I wanted to pass this link on to you. I thought you might be interested.
My blog has turned into a true community of hope and love and comfort for the staff and families at Trinity Episcopal. We lost power at school early with Katrina, so I have switched us over to the blog for communication. It has been an unbelievable source of comfort for many in our community.

Here’s how to find K-20 schools which have places for students displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
With over 250,000 students of all ages displaced, I started last Tuesday on this mission. The response of the educational community nationwide has been most heartening.
