Trying to recover

(Heavy Sigh...) If touring the results of a natural disaster can be done tastefully, then the Hurricane Katrina Tour in New Orleans, Louisiana has managed it. I won't pretend that it was easy to hear the stories and see the damage but the guide was respectful and compelling. We travelled to the hardest hit areas and heard the very personal stories of hardship and recovery. This tour is a good reminder of how quickly your life can change. It is a tribute to the folks who are helping New Orleans recover. It is a testament to the residents who didn't give up or give in. Less than two years after Katrina much has been done and there is much work still. I'm glad I was able to see it...
