Today is the 8 year anniversary. Do think the city has really improved? Will you celebrate today?

Well, thanks for the shout out from up north.

Celebrate? Do you think we all throw Katrina parties?

Bro 1: "Hey everybody, lets drink up to one of the biggest tragedies in American history! Wooo!"

Bro 2: "Cool, we could throw a 9/11 party next month too!"

My children were 8 & 9 then. I remember them watching the TV, and saying ok, any minute now, the Army and Air Force will come in and get them out of there! Hey....why aren't they rescuing those people?

A few weeks later Hurricane Ike was threatening our area. I grabbed the kids, my $600 purse with my gold cards, we all jumped into my late model SUV, headed to the gas station, filled up with our CC, then on a quest for supplies. Stores were out of water, we heard they had water at Target. We found a line a mile long there, I managed to park, and told the kids each one grab a basket, and fill up with anything we could drink, water, soda, juice, anything....while I scarffed up canned stuff, etc. Checkout was ~ $600. The storm didn't affect our area....thank God.

The kids learned a lesson that day....they said money and credit are your true friends! No one is going to rescue you, and you can't get out of harm's way without your own supplies, etc.

I think any president in the future (see Obama/ Sandy) will be extremely careful to look like they are doing all they can in the wake of a hurricane.
