"When I admire the wonder of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in worship of the Creator" ~ Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
The Mississippi coast near Pass Christian has been ravaged, the coastline changed, these dunes decimated, tree-lined drives obliterated, homes destroyed. And yet the colors shading the sky at sunset remain the same. The moon still rises over the now calm sea and each morning the sun shines, bringing warmth to the earth; the now gentle winds reshape the sand and yes, even now the seeds of gently waving sea grass begin their journey of rebirth along with the courageous people of Mississippi.
