This is an image of what President Bush saw on board Air Force One on his way back to Washington, DC. The image shows the havoc caused by Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans where thousands are feared to have been killed.
We are so used to calamities and disasters that images like this do not astound us anymore. We also have lost thousands of lives because of super typhoons and flashfloods. Calamities like these bring out the best and the worst in people.
I offer my condolences to those who have lost family relatives and my prayers to those who are left behind.
