Transcript Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans with a death toll of over 1^00 people, and more than three times that amount were counted as missing. The hurricane brought a great deal of attention to the poverty in America. The slow reaction of the government in particular, caused a great deal of turmoil and debate. Hurricane Katrina forced many to realize that though the United States of America might be a Superpower,' it is a nation with many problems. Many thought that race was motivation for the government's slow response. Celebrities such as Kanye West spoke out against the administration's poor reaction to the tragedy in contrasting the situation with quicker responses to the tsunami devastation in Asia this past year, as well as other foreign catastrophes. Even though politically, the hurricane brought more doubt than certainty on America's priorities, socially it brought to light the brotherhood that Americans have with one another. The media supported the victims and played an amazing role in demanding the government to act quickly. Citizens throughout the nation donated money, space, and time in an effort to relieve the devastation. After the New Year residents of New Orleans returned as the city was rebuilt. However, some chose to remain in Houston and have since been embraced by the community. Still proud to be from New Orleans they have integrated and become part of Houston's soul while bringing their own distinct flavor. Hurricane Katrina, possibly the most devastating natural disaster to affect the United States, will never be forgotten. Despite upsetting circumstances, equally memorable and impressive is the resilience and strength of American brotherhood, and certainly the participation of the city of Houston in relieving agony and mistfortune of the one of the worst tragedies in American history.^ Story by Darrel A.
