'Where Are They?': New Orleanan Wrestles with Aftermath of Katrina

Donna is from New Orleans and writes today:
You go through your daily routine not thinking about the possibility of never seeing someone again. You see them everyday. Sure, you might take a few days off, but when you return, there they are. You never think about the possibility of being pushed out of your comfort zone, your work, your office, your daily routine, and your life, as you once knew it. What are we, the people from the New Orleans Metro Area, supposed to do with this situation? We've cried, we've shown anger, we've cared, and we give to those who faired the worst. What do you do with an entire city, now void of life, laughter, fun, and good times as well as good people? What are we to make of this entire experience? How should we feel about the situation we are now faced with? So many questions, but the answers are not immediate.
We're all just ephemeral strangers and aliens passing through life in this beautiful and often savage planet. Many of our questions go unanswered. But God-in-the-flesh, Jesus Christ, remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. He's the rock on Whom life can be built, even when ocean waves surge and levees break and life doesn't yield many answers.
