Hurricanes and Happy Birthdays

Today marks the 104th anniversary of the deadliest natural disaster in United States history, the hurricane that struck Galveston. Historians estimate that close to 10,000 people died. If the storm hadn't almost completely destroyed the city, people believe that Galveston would be the big city down here, not Houston.

Today also marks the 26th anniversary of my brother Russell's birth. He's definitely not a natural disaster, though I used to think of him as one when we were growing up.

Happy birthday, Russell! I love you and hope it's an awesome day for you!

I saw a news special on that hurricane. It really was horrible. All those Nuns and children that died in that orphange really bothered me.
Happy Birthday to your brother.
