The names of the missing
Every time I think about the devastation in New Orleans, and how they continue to find bodies all these months later, my stomach turns over – because there are still over 3000 people missing.
Where are they?
Are some still in the rubble waiting to be discovered by relatives? Were they washed into Lake Ponchartrain, as some reports are speculating?
I don’t even want to go there in my mind. It’s too terrible a thought. I’m hoping that the vast majority of these folks are at work today, or at school, or just going through the normal activities of life somewhere.
If they are, then somebody probably knows about it. Everybody needs to look at this list of names, and see if they can help answer some really scary questions.
The alternatives are unthinkable.
UPDATE - 8:22 am: One of the missing accounted for already!
