Hurricane Katrina: A 5th Anniversary

Post by SG10 on 9/5/2010, 1:05 am

Yep, it's been that long since the Gulf Coast was struck by one of the worst environmental tragedies in United States history. It reshaped New Orleans in more ways than one. Coincidentally, my mother was hospitalized with a "mild" (the obstruction was at one of of the small branches extending from an artery at the base of her heart) myocardial infarction (heart attack) that same day. The affected areas have recuperated (recovered) for the most part, but some division will be left intact because construction is basically too expensive. I want to ask y'all....where did you first hear about Katrina and how did it impact you emotionally? My 7th grade mathematics teacher had the television turned on to CNN News, where they were presenting reports about the hurricane. TBH, I didn't provide much thought to Katrina at first. After all, the Atlantic Basin season was flourishing that year. Then, I discovered how catastrophic this tropical system was and it sort of left me grieving especially since New Orleans was a piece of my mother's childhood (even though she lived outside city limits). BTW, my apologies for not establishing this topic on Sunday. I somehow could never find the time until this point.

A few pictures I'd like to share:

I can't believe that you can have a city as great and vibrant as New Orleans, and it can all get destroyed with a hurricane. Definitely a tragedy.

^ Exactly

It's pretty sad to see that people's lives can just get ripped away from them because of this. And the people who did survive suffered. Pretty much a living hell.

A huge tragedy. Buuut don't wanna sound insensitive, but I'm a little tired of hearing about it. Silly Face!




Brittany: Well, family is a place where everybody loves you no matter what. And they accept you for who you are. I know I'm going to be a bridesmaid at Mike and Tina's wedding. And I'm going to be anxiously waiting just like everybody else to see if their babies are Asian too. When they find an operation to make Artie's legs work again, I'm going to be there for his first steps. I love them, I love everyone in glee club and I get to spend another year with the people I love. So, I'm good.
Santana: What about you and I?
Brittany: I love you Santana. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone else in this world. All I know about you and I is that because of that, I think anything's possible.
Santana: When did you get so smart?

My thoughts exactly, it was a tragedy but it got a little old hearing about it all the time.
