Remembering Hurricane Katrina

Hallo Friends!

Today just a short note to remember Hurricane Katrina and it's victims and survivors. Hard to believe 5 years have past since than.

Do you remember what you were doing that day August 29th, 2005? I remember it well. The day before I had arrived in Dallas Texas for a visit. We stayed in a motel in town and had just returned from a nice German dinner at a Restaurant named Kuby's. As we turned on the TV we were confronted with pictures of the hurricane coming on land in New Orleans. They were not pretty pictures and one could see the devastation right away. How very sad. So many people looking for a place to go and so many people waiting to be rescued.

For days we watched mesmerized how everything was unfolding. Many people were rescued and brought to other bigger cities all over Texas, Alabama, Mississippi and other places. The motel we were staying at was filling up to capacity in a short period of time. Even so this was a terrible experience for these people, they still tried to be positive and trying to look forward to their future. Many would return to New Orleans when they were able to, but many more now live in other places.

Today lets say a prayer for those whose lives were lost and for those who survived we pray they have found a better and safe life. Let's Remember!!!!

Until soon, Erika


  1. Has it only been 5 years? Amazing how time flies. Honestly, the way that whole thing was handled is very embarrassing. Are you settled in yet? I hope so. Best to you always...

  2. Hallo Erika. Vielen Dank für deinen Besuch bei mir. Ich schreibe dir auf deutsch, weil mein englisch nicht so besonders ist. Sorry. Hier gab es auch einen Bericht im TV, das es noch so viele Leute gibt, die immer noch kein neues Zuhause haben. Das ist eigentlich traurig... LG Inge
