I grew up in New Orleans, and even moved back to my childhood home a year before Katrina, after having moved from theKids 100 Days Of First Grade Level Unlocked 100 Days Of School T Shirt to Lafayette in ’79. BIG mistake!!! Not just because of Katrina; but, because I realized almost immediately upon moving back, that my beloved Gentilly Woods had changed drastically! Gunshots in the middle of the night, definitely no driving around after dark, feeling terrified in a home that had once given me shelter and protection, was now a place I feared living in. No, this was not the New Orleans that I had loved and felt such a sense of belonging and freedom! My beloved city was no more. It was a hard pill to swallow, but I accepted it.
