Hurricane Katrina: A Year Later

A submerged New Orleans, following Hurricane Katrina.

It was an emotional experience like no other, a year ago when the levees in New Orleans failed, and the United States gulf coast started getting submerged the moment Hurricane Katrina made landfall. Though I was far removed from the mystery, anguish and destruction, just like many others; I watched in awe as events unfolded.

Since August 29, 2005, it has been an emotional rollercoaster for many, especially those caught in the eye of the storm. The pain - though mitigated - still persist, somewhat till today, and will most likely remain unresolved.

I salute the people of the gulf coast and the kindred spirits that rose to offer gestures of kindness. It is well!
