Sigh.

Saddest post yet on the hurricane from kekori, a resident of Punta Gorda, near the center of the storm. :

"Right now I feel like breaking down into tears. I found out that three of my friends have been hospitalized, and one of my friends did die. I still haven't heard from Veronica, Jason, and Lewie... I can't wait to leave for NC.. fuck, I feel lucky.. but then.. I feel at a loss, like, if I was there with them.. I could have pushed them out of the way or something.. They deserve better than what happened to them...

I would give my life instantly for any friend, at anytime.

So why they fuck did it happen to them! I want to trade places with everyone in Pt.Charlotte right now, that has either lost their life, homes, or are just seriously hurt! They deserve a 2nd chance, and I have had way too many.. I've got $78.. it's not much, but I hope it helps somebody...

Sorry.. I just feel.. it should have happened to me, than to someone else. Just....fuck..."


I'd also suggest reading virgin_politics journal, as she has a particularly good post on the difficulties she faces having a house on Sanibel Island, one of the hardest hit regions.

She mentioned that contributions can be sent to:
