For so long I tried to forget August 29, 2005. Today begins a week of remembrance for me. In honor of the 5 year anniversary of Katrina I will be posting pictures of my loss. I have not looked at these pictures in about 4 years. It has opened up some very painful wounds. I have been looking at hundreds of pictures for the past hour or so and have decided to share a painful part of my life with anyone that decides to read this.
I touched on Katrina in one of my earliest posts. For those who did not read that post, I ask that you please take a few minutes to read it. It shares the story of my husband and the hard painful life he has lived. I believe it was my 3rd entry. Thank you!
I lived 5 houses off the beach in a small community called Pass Christian, MS. Here are some pictures of what I came home to a month after Katrina. We were not allowed to go back there until then because of the dangerous gas lines and debris piled 20+ feet in the air. These pictures are after they cleared the streets and hauled almost all the debris away.
