Remembering Hurricane Katrina Two Years Later

As I am sure you know, today is the two year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina smashing into our Gulf Coast. I say "our" because the people who live there are just like you & I ~ their towns and land are part of OUR COUNTRY! We can not forget them or let them down!
New Orleans, LA
St Bernard Parish
Lower Ninth Ward
Waveland, MS
Biloxi, MS
Bay St Louis, MS
Our Gulf Coast neighbors!
We are proud of the people, charities, etc who stood up to help themselves & those around them. Many of you realized that the government was not providing the assistance that was needed. Volunteers, strangers, neighbors, families all went to work ~ helping each other. That is amazing!
Please, remember that our fellow Americans still need us. NOLA has made great strides in the last 2 years. However, there is still much to do. A large majority of the city's economy is based on tourism. The small business owners in the Garden District, French Quarter, Magazine Street area & so on are open! Support their tenacity & hard work by visiting. The tourist parts of New Orleans employee a large portion of the citizens. Your tourist dollars will help people support their families, be able to return to their homes and rebuild the historical, devastated residential areas.
Vive la Nouvelle-Orleans!!!
