It has been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina altered my beloved New Orleans. I am not a native daughter but I love that city, the people, the food, the music, culture, the climate, the land. It always feels like home when I go there. And the city has earned its survivor status throughout history over and over … not more so than since 2005.
This is a moment of silence for the dead, the survivors, and the Crescent City herself.
