With prayers, the solemn tolling of bells, second line parades, the drumming of Mardi Gras Indians, commemorative services, and tear filled eyes, south Louisiana residents relived those first days of Katrina. Local and national television stations replayed the heart wrenching scenes of thousands stranded on roof tops and the pitiful scenes of the disaster in the Superdome.

I couldn’t imagine having to give up cat, Rags because I was unable to feed her. I couldn’t imagine being a parent and having to take my child’s best friend away cause you needed to feed the family first. So I called my next door neighbor, Emily and asked if she wanted to join me in raising monies to purchase food.
There are two fishing communities south of New Orleans, St. Bernard Parish on the east side of the Mississippi River and Plaquemines Parish on the west side. I called each SPCA and was thankful to learn that both were no-kill facilities. Both were near full capacity and would be thankful for the donation. They would also notify local families that food was available for pickup.

The people of south Louisiana are sadden by the events in the gulf, actually our hearts are broken. Last year was such a positive , joyful and hopeful time. Saints football brought New Orleans into almost every home in this country and even around the world. It reminded the world that we are a unique and vibrant culture . Visitors have flocked to our city since . We were back and finally leaving Katrina behind.
