Ike's Landfall

Authorities in three counties estimate approximately 90,000 people refused to evacuate in the face of hurricane Ike, despite a dire warning from forecasters that many of those in one or even two story homes faced "certain death."

"I believe in the man up there, God," said William Steally, a 75-year-old retiree who planned to ride out the storm in Galveston without his wife or sister-in-law. "I believe he will take care of me."



Our prayers are with those on the Texas coast.

I am at a loss for words at the beauty of that performance.

Thank you Xav.

Thank you sir.

I pray now for the safety of all in harm's way, knowing there is a mystery beyond my understanding.

Yes, this is indeed one of the best performances of Barber's "Agnus Dei". May the Lamb of God truly be the Shepherd of those in Ike's path.
