The Long And Winding Road

 

Blogger:  Lee M. Epstein

As many commentators have noted, Hurricane Harvey made landfall nearly twelve years to the day of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Back then, I had just completed a trial in a small Parish next door to New Orleans. Fortunately, my flight home took off safely on Friday afternoon before Katrina hit the following Monday. I personally was spared the devastation suffered by so many in New Orleans then and in Houston now. But so many that I befriended lost so much.

Over the succeeding years, I’ve had many opportunities to revisit New Orleans. I’ve watched as the people of that great city have recovered, reclaimed and rebuilt. It was slow and it was hard but it happened.

With Harvey now in the rear view mirror, and Irma rumbling through the Caribbean, more heartache is on the way. We’ve been down this road. It’s long and winding but we’ve made it through before and will do so again.
