SENIORS: SORTING THROUGH THE DEBRIS

Mar 5th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

If you are one of those who has been hit by the huge and unforgiving storms of the last several days, you are not likely reading this column today. Your household has been totally devastated. Your heart is broken. Your life is in shambles. Your family, hopefully, will have survived. For those who lost loved ones, it is a hurt beyond words.

Everything in and about your life has been tragically and terribly altered. It is impossible to make sense of it. Neighbors, like you, wander through the field of disaster in a daze. An old man clutches his pet and cries. A child is the only member of her family left alive. Every school in one town is in total disrepair. There is nothing but litter and pieces and parts scattered everywhere. With the deluge of stuff in mounds everywhere, there is not much hope, not much promise.
