10 years later, I am STILL here. I am N.O. till the meat show. It’s not in how I talk or how I walk, but it’s forever in my heart. ✊🏾 These last 10 years seem as though Katrina happened just yesterday. The trials and tribulations my family has gone through since the storm seemed never ending. I have lost not one, but two of my grandmothers, my grandfather, & my aunt 2 months ago. My most PRIZED possessions. I have failed school when I used to be nothing but an A+ Student, lost a job, and had silent bouts with depression…BUT GOD! I have kept a smile on my face even when sometimes all I wanted to do was cry. I have enriched the lives of our youth on a daily basis. I have been called “one of the strongest people some know”. I have been called “the highlight of many days”. BUT. GOD. These 10 years may have been great for some. But Post-Katrina for me was no walk in the park. If it wasn’t for God, Faith, Prayer, & Divine Favor, I would not be here today. So Katrina, girl thank you. You have made me stronger than I EVER would’ve thought I could be. ❤️ To my fellow New Orleanians, we alright. We been alright. We’ll always be alright. Never be embarrassed by where you came from. Our struggles (hopefully) have made us stronger and we are still here today by God’s grace. 🙏🏾👌🏾
