Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy
Monday, April 07, 2008
Ashley Morris left behind a wife and three beautiful children. If you haven't seen this somewhere else please go here and donate something for them. I still can't believe he's gone. I can't be at the memorial, but I will be wearing all the Saints gear I can find on Friday.
I grew up in Metairie, LA and lived in actual New Orleans for 12 years. The day that I turned 30, I moved to New Jersey and then to Easton, PA 4 years ago. As luck would have it, I was in New Orleans when Katrina approached and evacuated to Jackson, MS. Other than that, I am a Latin and history teacher at a small, independent school in NJ. I miss New Orleans a lot, think about it all the time, and try to go there whenever the work schedule allows.
