SG19 Posted September 5, 2010 Share Posted September 5, 2010 Yep, it's been that long since the Gulf Coast was struck by one of the worst environmental tragedies in United States history. It reshaped New Orleans in more ways than one. Coincidentally, my mother was hospitalized with a "mild" (the obstruction was at one of of the small branches extending from an artery at the base of her heart) myocardial infarction (heart attack) that same day. The affected areas have recuperated (recovered) for the most part, but some division will be left intact because construction is basically too expensive. I want to ask y'all....where did you first hear about Katrina and how did it impact you emotionally? My 7th grade mathematics teacher had the television turned on to CNN News, where they were presenting reports about the hurricane. TBH, I didn't provide much thought to Katrina at first. After all, the Atlantic Basin season was flourishing that year. Then, I discovered how catastrophic this tropical system was and it sort of left me grieving especially since New Orleans was a piece of my mother's childhood (even though she lived outside city limits). BTW, my apologies for not establishing this topic on Sunday. I somehow could never find the time until this point.
