August 29 five years later and moving on……

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the failure of the Federal Levee System. It also marks a point where I will not be offering tours of the Lower 9th ward. I reached this decision after much thought and consideration. Just yesterday St. Bernard Parish had a funeral for KATRINA and they laid her  to rest. I feel we as Louisiana’s  and New Orleanians need to get to a point where this catastrophe is not forgotten but not dwelled on either.  Also  with the recent OIL SPOIL we realize we are not immune from more man-made catastrophes as well as a good  chance of recurring natural disasters. Any of you who have spent three hours on one of my tours knows my passion for this city and its culture and history as well as the culture and history of all in south Louisiana. So please take a moment today to reflect on this past and pray for the future. Consider the people who perished in the aftermath of the Levee failures, the people still not accounted for, the tragedy that we as a country  suffered while watching this unfold. Finally beware of the media from local to national and the world. These people use erroneous information to sensationalize their cause, they cannot and should not be trusted. We are in the information age but most of the information is slanted and wrong. I hope none of you ever have to go through two catastrophes like we have endured here, but if you do you will witness first hand the incompetence and inhumanity of the local, federal,and world media. You will also at that point experience  the breakdown of the richest and most powerful nation in the world as it attempts to cope with a hand dealt by God. So join us today in laying to rest Katrina . Say a prayer, light a candle but most importantly learn something from this! Please do not forget the 1836 lives that were lost, the people who are still missing, and those who are still suffering and living this in the aftermath………

Thank You & God Bless


rest in peace
