    Reality Check...........

    Hello my I.M. friends/family.



    I'm certain by this time everyone reading this is aware of the massive devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. There are not adequate words to express the profound loss of life and property that the victims of this disaster have suffered and continue to suffer each day.

    I'm writing this to encourage all of you to donate to the Red Cross (or any other charity of your choice for that matter). There are hundreds of thousands of people in the southern states who desperately need our help. Your donation will make a difference.

    I'll be out of pocket for the next few weeks. My unit has, just within the last 3 hours, been activated for mobilization to Louisiana to assist in the rescue and relief effort. I am grateful for this opportunity to go help these people in need.

    Thank you all for your prayers and support. Please remember the Oklahoma National Guard and the people we serve. This is not about me. It's not about us. It's about those people who desperately need help. They've cried out. Let's answer.

    Thanks,

    Erik (aka Wit)

    I hope you actually get to help and don't just end up policing looters.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012
