Re: Re: [Katrina/Marines


Jesse, We will pray for him and all those faced with the sad task of
recovering the dead and the joy of helping survivors. Encourage him to talk
with a good chaplain about how he's feeling. Tell him not to be afraid to
feel. It's painful, but healthier in the long run to cry. Also not to feel
guilty about indulging in a little macabre humor. Sometimes a laugh can help
you get through a moment when crying isn't possible.
This is such a sad situation. I'm increasing my donation to Humanitarian Aid
through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. !00% goes to relief
efforts. Administrative costs are absorbed into other church costs, defrayed
by other categories of donations. The Church is also well known for fielding
lots of skilled volunteers to help in disasters, many from the immediate
area, so response is quick & ongoing. Here's a link:

Thanks for the links to other worthwhile charities.
