I got a letter and some photos from my grandmother a week or so ago, showing some more of the damage from Katrina. I guess around these parts, people have kind of forgotten about Katrina by now, but down in Mississippi they certainly haven't. She points out in her photos that areas that used to be completely wooded are now completely barren, and in the background of a picture she took of my grandfather, you see a destroyed bridge and general devastation. One of the pictures is of a chainlink fence surrounding a pile of wood, stone, and trash, labeled on the back "the house across from the beach."
But, as she closes her letter, "the south will rise again."
