Galveston is a special place to me personally. I used to spend summers there as a kid because this is where my grandparent's lived for more than 40 years. I even went back a couple of months ago to show my own kids the fun and heritage of their great-grand-parents love for the "island." But today, as I looked on at the many devastating reports of Hurricane Ike's furry, I saw a completely different Galveston. It's destroyed and the people are hurting. While my affections run deep for Galveston, there are MANY other areas affected by this monster storm as well.
Here is some footage of the devastation:

I want to go down there and help out in any way I can, but no one can get in right now. I know those affected will need a lot of help, so anyone who has ideas of how we can get a relief effort started so we can help just PM me. It would be awesome .

I'm sure the End Timers are celebrating, but as for me, I'm so sad that all these things (weather, job loss, etc.) are hitting us like this.
If we don't turn this around, I truly fear for us, even more than I already do.

Sadly, Galveston, as we once knew it is gone. The island is closed to the outside world until further notice. It will take at least a decade to rebuild.:(

This is reality of life on a barrier island, or in any coastal region where hurricanes can impact you - storms hit, you rebuild if necessary, and move on. If a person's not up for the risk, then there are plenty of other places to live.
