Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco has declared today a statewide Day of Prayer. She asked all residents to spend the day in prayer.

"That would be the best thing to calm our spirits and thank our Lord that we are survivors," Blanco said. "Slowly, gradually, we will recover; we will survive; we will rebuild."
That's something we can all do for one another.

My office today is working to help coordinate some volunteer and assistance efforts with our fellow employees, and it's good to feel like we're doing something - anything.

I urge people to make a donation - however large or small - to the Red Cross and to designate it for the Hurricane Katrina Relief Efforts. The situation in New Orleans continues to deteriorate, and the needs here in the state continue to grow.
