I sit in South Carolina, thankfully out of harm's way, but my mind and heart are on those in my family that are staying in La. I wish that they would leave, but I can't convince them to do so. I vividly remember the destruction that Katrina left and hate to think that may happen again, especially since Baton Rouge is on the east side of the storm, the worst place to be. I pray that this won't be another Gulfport or Biloxi, but I don't know if we'll be so lucky.
