NEW ORLEANS – It's been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina killed nearly 2,000 people and left hundreds of thousands homeless. Ten years since New Orleans was under water, and the Gulf Coast decimated. And 10 years since a lot of folks in America wondered: “Where the heck is George Bush?”
Well, Friday, the former President and his wife Laura made their way to the Big Easy for the 10th anniversary of Katrina. He spoke at Warren Easton Charter High School, the same school he visited a year after the tragedy to talk about their participation in the city's recovery.
"Out of the devastation of Katrina, you vowed to do more than just open the schools, you vowed to challenge the status quo,” Bush said. "The resiliency teached at Warren Easton is the same resilience that this city showed the world in the wake of Hurricane Katrina."
Although things are looking up a decade later for some, many can't forgive the President’s slow reaction to the disaster.
Hey, whether you love him or hate him, better late than never, right?
