I get back to my hotel room, turn on the news, and see the horror that is New Orleans in the wake of Hurricaine Katrina. Oh my god. The pictures look much like the tsumai damage from the Indian Ocean region not too long ago. The main difference is, people had warning to get out.
I have a certain love for this city. There is just something about it and I can’t tell you what it is exactly, but it’s just what it is and I love it. To see this kind of damage is just heartbreaking. I can’t imagine what would have happened if they hadn’t given instructions to evacuate the city. Even so, the tragedy of those that had to stick it out, of those that lost everything… ugh.
