Pay It Forward: Remembering Katrina
Pay it Forward: 11 Years After Katrina
It's been 11 years since Hurricane Katrina made a turn in the Gulf of Mexico and headed straight to the heart of the south, New Orleans. There was devastation, heartbreak, but most importantly there was HOPE. Hope that we could only get through this time together.
Many families were misplaced, torn apart, and some miraculously brought together. We went through our tragedy and now New Orleans is more beautiful and thriving than ever before.
The devastation in Baton Rouge and surrounding parishes gives us the opportunity to Pay it Forward to the people that housed and took care of us during our tragedy.
Baton Rouge, LA has made headlines this summer for unfortunate reasons. The Great Flood gives our state the chance to show the country that WE ARE ONE. It gives human beings a chance to show each other that we are one race, one community, and all we have to give is LOVE.
The Great Flood of 2016 has brought the people of this state and parts of The South together. Even through tragedy, our people have shown the Spirit of Louisiana is alive and well.
