It seems too easily forgotten that 3 years ago today Hurricane Katrina and it's aftermath ravaged so many lives, did irreparable damage to families and left so many homeless in the Gulf.
And while today marks the three year anniversary, I have seen little dedicated to remembering these folks and the concern that yet another storm might hit this blighted area that our nation has YET to really address.
So much of our energy and focus is tied up in Long Weekend plans, parties, the very calculated choice of VP for Senator McCain, and Senator Obama's historic bid for the presidency.
But I URGE you, PLEASE - Do Not forget to consider New Orleans.
Please, stop and think about it.
Please, don't forget.
Please do not consider CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN, without considering the right of return for so many people.
