How can those displaced by Hurricane Katrina possibly celebrate? To the uprooted, I'd say, You may not have a dining table or money for food, but using your imagination, try to create a special meal. Sit as if you were around a table and tell stories of your family--stories of suffering, yes, but also stories of overcoming. Sitting together around food is healing. It helps us make meaning of what has happened. The meaning may be simply this: some of us are still here, we still have each other, and we can go on.
