I was reading an article last night dated December 2000 that was eerily prophetic about the chance of NO becoming an extinct city.
Then I read this article dated today on MSN about the rebuilding effort in NO now that the storm passed and how it may be unfeasible, leaving NO a ghost town and environmental disaster area.
Then I read this heart-wrenching story, realizing that there are hundreds of thousands like it going on not just in Louisiana and Mississippi, but all over the world…
I’m still in a state of disbelief about all this. A city I always dreamed of visiting is just gone…possibly forever. And the sad part is, our government knew this would happen for almost a decade if not longer and didn’t do much to prevent it. If anything positive can come out of this situation, it’s a complete attitude change about fuel consumption, alternative fuel development and environmental awareness in general.
