Spike Lee’s When The Levees Broke was on HBO over the weekend and it just didn’t click. Since I’d never seen it, I played it when I got off work Saturday and the dates finally registered. Saturday marked the fourth anniversary of the tragic natural disaster. While the storm itself was disastrous, the events that transpired afterwords will live in infamy. It’s easy to bash to Government for all their shortcomings, but we should also remember how many people banded together from across the country (& world) to lend aid to those affected.
R.I.P. to those lost and continued prayers to those still working to get their lives and city back in order.
