Another story

Today I saw an old friend (a Doctor) whose sister & family were displaced from New Orleans. It is such a familiar story. "Family leaves town for a couple of days because of the hurricane warning. They expect to return within 2-3 days. Instead, everything is destroyed. The son was a Senior in High School. That great year is ruined, never to return. He is enrolled in a private school in Baton Rouge, but it won't be the same because it is with new friends and new rules. It isn't home. The father has to re-establish his practice. They are all still living together. Stress."
