The first year Post Katrina is over. It's provided closure for some. It was just another day for others. Yesterday was a time for reflection for so many people. A time to recount all they've lost, learned, mourned, gained.... regardless of our personal circumstances, we were all changed in some way by Katrina. I myself have learned patience. Patience with myself, with others. The patience to accept the long lines in the checkout counters at Walmart, patience to sit through hours of traffic just to get home. It's been a year of insight not only into myself, but others as well. I'm looking forward to watching us all heal in the next year. Hoping that New Orleans over comes all of her problems and blooms as the beautiful city that she can be.
