Still

Dear Katrina, I’m just not ready. I’m not ready for all the news reports, the constant coverage and the land blasting of your memories. I’m not ready, even though it’s been 4 years. I still can’t deal with you. I know I should. Believe me, I know. But I just can’t. I tried, really I...

    I actually watched the last minute of the game. It was a awesome win. I knew you’d be excited!

    Wow, I didn’t realize today was the anniversary. I’ve been away too long.

    I cannot even begin to imagine. It was awful enough being states away in a desert.

Dear Media,

Can you please stop churning out Katrina/post Katrina series, specials, reality shows and the lot? I am just not fucking ready, and really think you have no right. all the best, Erika
