After the Flood

I'm glad so many reporters are still telling the stories of people whose lives were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. This morning NPR's Morning Edition ran an excellent story by Kathy Lohr about families who are stuck in the D'Iberville, Miss., civic center because they have nowhere else to go. Lohr's "Rebuilding Lives from a Mississippi Shelter" captures the frustration in the voices of these people who desperately want to return to their own homes.
Another great story appeared a few weeks back in the San Diego Union-Tribune. In "Unsettled in San Diego," Jenifer Goodwin tells of Trent Lowe, a New Orleans teen born without arms or legs, who is learning how to survive in a strange city without the motorized wheelchair, lost to Katrina, that gave him his independence.
