Another tear jerker — Chris Rose, “The storm that keeps killing”:

My neighbor is in a hospital in another part of the state now, learning how to deal. She talked to friends over the weekend and said she is not going to run away from this. She is a New Orleans girl and this is where she is going to stay and try again. And again. And again.

She told her friends this weekend that she still has hope.

I don’t know what flavor of hope that she’s got, or how she got it, but if she’s got a taste of it in her mouth, then the rest of us can take a little spoonful and try to make it through another day, another week, another lifetime.

It’s the least we can do.
