Hi. I've been watching coverage of Katrina and the last five years all weekend. So glad you are a survivor. Best luck.

I thing no offense to you Danny that people need to get this image drilled in there head! Did you know that we had 2 major hurricanes in the past that had even greater devestation and life loss.Needless to say those events are only remembered by the locals...and this is the 3rd time the levees breeched! It just makes me think that if people,government who ever would have remembered we wouldnt have suffered at all.By the way eventhough we have rebuilt some parts of the city...ask the locals are there levees built yet...5 years later

I want people to go visit and rebuild and experience the culture.Just not during hurricane season cause god forbid something such as a storm like katrina develops and they would be screwed just because the levees are still like they were 5 YEARS AGO!!!!!

These images put fear in our hearts because we now know what type of destruction can come along. Amazing as many survived as they did. I know that as a t1 that I would never have made it without insulin, it's just that simple. I've often thought of this type of siuation and it scares me dearly. Do you still live there? I'm not sure I could of stayed. Thank you for the reminder.
