Holiday wishes 2005

By December 25, 2005November 11th, 2020katrina

Dave Winer has a holiday wish, which includes a special message for New Orleans.  Last year I was in Panama visiting my dad and as I recall we began the new year horrified at the devastation in India and South Asia as a Tsunami struck and caused damage along coastal towns and villages.  Never would I have guessed that a similar fate would befall my own city.  Still, I’m happy for the the many things that have ‘gone right’ in my life. I have great family and friends, and I have three wonderful kids.  Here is a copy of the letter that I wrote them this year for Christmas; it pretty much summarizes how I feel about all of this Katrina stuff.  It’s good to have people outside New Orleans –people like Dave Winer– who care about us and who want to help.  I’ve learned a lot from Katrina, mostly I’ve learned how helpful people can be if they are given the chance to be positive.


P.S. If you appreciate these kinds of observations, you might want to read this as well.
