Greetings from Mississippi
Above is a picture of a home outside of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. Note the pool behind the washed-out foundation of the house. I am here with 2 of my kids to help out some of the people who have suffered. We are building a shed for a woman who had water nearly up to her ceiling (she is still living in a trailer). It is very humbling to see how much some people have suffered (when I think of how I complain about some things in my life). I wanted to expose my kids to the fact that their lives are not normal. It is not normal to sit around and play games and live comfortably all the time.
I will keep you updated with this trip. It helps give perspective. I highly recommend this work for anyone who wants to do their part.
