Abstract

At 6:30 a.m. yesterday morning I loaded La Belle Femme’s luggage, air mattress, and bedding into the back of the 2009 RAV-4 SUV and drove the 2.5 miles across town to drop her off at the regional Baptist Disaster Relief headquarters to join the thirteen-member team that was about to embark on an eight-hour drive, eight-day out-of-town trip to Walker, Louisiana, site of the recent 1,000 year flood that has devastated southern Louisiana and left tens of thousands homeless and in extremely dire circumstances.
