Default WHAT HAVE WE GOT TO GRIPE ABOUT?

After all that is going on in New Orleans and all over down south, how can we even think of what gripes us from a cruise or any vacation. These poor families have no home, job and worse of all some have lost many family members. Makes some of these gripes seem so meaningless doesnt it? So when we are all on our vacations and cruises, Take the time to jsut say I am going to have a great time and forgive others around us for whatever it is that is making us gripe. What else can be said? So very sad situation....

I have noticed the number of Gripes since Monday is well down cruisingrandma and I think that reflects the current mood of the people on here. Your post was already understood by all before you made it.

This has been a disaster on a scale that has yet to unfold, so lets leave it at that for now and think and pray for those in the areas effected.

Right now. let the services do what they have to do, and on here if people want light relief, thats also okay. If not you would go mad with the state of the world. It does not mean people don't care.

Help me to help others...I have been on a few cruises...they were breathtakingly delightful....I can carry those memories with me forever...If only I can help others that need help...I think giving myself to others would rise above the memories of the incredible cruise memories I have....and those cruise memories are pretty high....

You are absolutely right, Grandma. I sat down to watch TV with my favorite low fat ice cream treat, and saw a woman on the news who lost her young son during the Hurricane. She says it hurts her to eat, but she has to stay strong for her other son....I ended up not eating my treat....

Can't even imagine not having CNN right now - I just sit watching the same thing hour after hour. We live so far away - British Columbia - I just wish we could help - other than the Red Cross - sending money doesn't seem like enough right now. We have a wonderful guest room and we would gladly open the doors if people could somehow get here.

Jennifer,

Money is exactly what the Red Cross needs. They can easily transport currency and change it into what is needed. Your offer of your room is very nice, but they'd probably fill it with 15 people! hee hee

Thank you for your caring.......

David - you are so naughty! But it is a great idea - but all those quarters I make on any given night would be too heavy to send to the Red Cross :o

It is unfortunate that many of those capable - financially speaking - of helping others just don't bother - guess that's how they stay rich. Giving has to come from the heart, so first, you have to have one.

ttfn Jennifer
