I’ve been sharing Katrina-related links on FB and Twitter all morning, but now can’t think of anything to say.
I’ve become numb remembering all of this again, even with it as my dissertation topic and therefore something I think about ALL THE TIME. That writing, though, is focused on the positive, the uses of technology to help build community. I appreciate my NOLA blogger friends [and interview participants] so much, mainly because we don’t have to explain ourselves to each other. Our loss is mutually understood.
Many of you who read this will never understand what it’s like to have lost so much, or even what it is we’ve lost because it is so beyond the tangible things, so all I can ask of you is just to remember.
