8 years.

8 years ago.  I came down to Biloxi on exactly the day of the 5th anniversary of Katrina. I never had known MS got hit - I just knew about New Orleans because of the media. Coming down there I soon learned how much the gulf coast endured. Every person I met had a story whether it was loss or triumph or both, they were stories of strength and survival. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to be there when it happened, but while I was living there I was surrounded by reminders of Katrina - and was amazed by the endurance of the gulf coast and especially of Biloxi to rebuild, rebuild, rebuild and to move forward. Living there, all the casinos and stores and restaurants being built was great to see and I only hope for more development and growth. God Bless my temporary home <3
