The Rebirth of New Orleans

As a Louisiana native, I watched in shock and disbelief as New Orleans was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. That tragedy hit close to home, as I was born 50 miles from there.

I hadn’t been back to the Big Easy since then and was eager to see how far the city has come along in its efforts to rebuild. So I took a trip in mid-May and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw.
