Thanks, Katrina

Going on three years post Katrina and her wrath is still being experienced by so many people.

Tim of the nameless blog writes about his bittersweet experience of finally getting a real home.

FEMA is now acting urgently to move people out of the trailers before the summer, and all the elderly within two weeks. Even if the mass evacuation is achieved, there are huge health implications, especially for small children whose immune systems have been weakened by two years in these trailers.

There are good things too. Like the fact that thousands of high school and college students are participating in the third Alternative Spring Break by coming down here to help rebuild/ cleanup all areas damanged by the storm.

I salute and thank you all.
