Hurricane Katrina: 10 Years


I was going to post a heavy blog about the 10 year remembrance of Hurricane Katrina, which gutted my state's entire beautiful coastline. But I've decided not to do that.

Most of us have seen plenty of images.
Some of us saw the nightmare firsthand.
We lived it.

But more importantly, we lived through it.
We are survivors.

I'm proud of the Gulf Coast for its resiliency and restoration post-Katrina. We've proven our courage to not only survive, but thrive. As many of us were, I was changed and displaced, but I remained on the Gulf Coast and I'm glad I did.

No matter where life takes me, it will always be my home.
