Today, tragic footprints left by Hurricane Katrina that hit Louisiana five years ago were seen on the local channels across the state. Til now, Cajun people are still not over with the hurricane's destructive path. So many loses, not only billions of state properties but over fifteen hundreds of people within Louisiana alone. I felt so bad for those who were severely affected, for those who have lost their loved ones yet happy at a certain place that at least, they are rebuilding their lives strengthened by the tragedy, itself.
I wasn't here when Katrina strike. I am trying to live myself in that period of time based on hubby's stories. He said that the Parish where I am at didn't get much whipping like New Orleans and other nearby Parishes had. Actually, it was just a minor one unlike the one's brought by Gustav that caused our destroyed chimney. Katrina did bring heavy rains flooding the lower grounds, though.
The most wonderful thing about a storm is that the appearance of the most colorful rainbow afterwards. Help across America comes rushing so quick, faster than fastest hurricane winds. Beautiful people offer every cent they could to feed the hungry, provide roofs for the unsheltered, warm the cold fleshes, entertain the weary and all kinds of help that we could imagine. The word "support" is sincerely meant not only by words but in gestures especially. Reason why I still want my children to be in the arms of America.
