Katrina hagiography

There have been many accounts of the Katrina events this week. I only hope the right version makes it to the history books. It is up to each of us to make sure our children and grandchildren know what really happened. Sunshine is for history, too.

  1. Katrina was a sad part of my family’s history. The only joy we received was having my mother move in with us in Virginia while she awaited an “all clear”. It was only a matter of a few months before she passed away. Ridiculous amounts of money was thrown from the FEMA bank accounts at those less deserving. It is a memory I will never forget.

    1. Thank you for your comment. It was the disaster that not everyone recovered from, usually having to do with socio-economic status, closely followed by race.
